Cycled from Starcross to Exeter Quay. Stopped at the Venezia coffee shop situated on the quayside. The choice of ice creams is unbelievable. From Jaffa cake to chocolate fudge to lime cheesecake. The choice is endless. If you like your ice creams then go here....More

Great place for food and drink and their seafood linguine is to die for the best I have ever had. Conveniently located on the Quay in Exeter I am always made very welcome even though I might be on my own.

Filled with Venetian romance and Mediterranean spirit, Bar Venezia sits on the tranquil quayside, next to the River Exe. The extensive menu not only offers Italian classics, but also Portuguese, Spanish, French and Greek delicacies, which are perfect to enjoy with river views on the ample al fresco seating. The Mediterranean buzz kicks up a gear with the regular dance classes and club nights, making it a true slice of the continent.
