“Nice looking but doesn't deliver”
Review of Coffee#1 Exeter

Coffee#1 Exeter
Ranked #14 of 34 Coffee & Tea in Exeter
Price range: US$1 - US$7
Cuisines: Cafe
Description: Award-winning coffee, cakes and pastries for breakfast, lunch and tea. Comfy sofas, beautiful interiors and cosy corners that you can hide away in for a quiet half an hour are as important to us as the cake we serve and the service we give. Come and see for yourself.

Had a latte and speciality hot chocolate. Both drinks were ok but nothing special, in fact the latte was pretty poor. Expensive for what was given

I have just discovered this cafe in Exeter. A franchise perhaps, but offering a degree of intimacy, comfort, efficiency and consistency of product and service unequalled in the Central City. I am a convert!

We've actually been here twice in the last month or so - but won't be hurrying back.

On the first occasion the queue was long but we wanted to give it a go so stuck it out. Unfortunately, on ordering a couple of croissants and being told there was only one left (at 09:45), the young lady serving proceeded to drop it on the floor - oh well, round the corner to Carluccio's then.

However, we're nothing if not fair so tried again a couple of weeks later. Slightly shorter queue this time and we actually completed our order without anything being dropped. Sadly, the coffee was simply not good enough - too weak. Also, the chairs weren't very comfortable and there aren't enough "comfy / squidgy" ones to go round!

The interior's nicely done and we like the books and the quotes and the atmosphere's quite good - this really should be an easy four green dots kind of place - but it falls a bit short for us.

While it's not going to blow anyone's socks off, this is certainly one of the best executions of the coffeehouse concept that I've come across - they do everything incredibly well, and it was a pleasure to try both their coffees and their selection of smoothies (in particular I can recommend The Booster!). Well worth a visit one afternoon while you're taking a break from shopping in Princesshay.
