MARCH 2020 - Sadly we have had to close the premises permanently. Thank you to all our past customers. We are still selling our cakes which can be found on a separate page on this website. x
Open since 2016, Rabbit was the first cafe in Exeter with a 100% plant based menu. We serve freshly prepared breakfasts, lunches, soup and desserts. We make all our seitan chickun, beef-style burgers, cheeze sauces, mayo, hummus and salad dressings from scratch. We have Zapatista coffee and a wide range of organic teas, plus lots of delicious homemade cakes. We always have a sponge cake on the counter and our display fridge has a range of tortes and cheezecakes
Rabbit is also the site of the uncovered remains of the ancient holy well of St Sidwell. The holy well is said to mark where the ‘virtuous maiden’ St Sidwell, an Anglo-Saxon saint who gave her name to this part of the city, was cut down by haymakers’ scythes. Legend says a spring burst forth where she fell, and it then became a place of pilgrimage throughout the medieval period. Come and make a wish!
We donate all proceeds from the well to Special Needs Older Rabbits Sanctuary (SNORS). We also have an amazing mural decorating our walls painted by the talented folks at WallsRus.
We offer the option of eat in or take away. Parking is available nearby in King William Car Park . There are also meters in King William Street (opposite the Well Street turning from York Road).
We look forward to warmly welcoming you! Please note: We are a dog friendly cafe.
