I like the atmosphere in here and have been coming here for years. Good breakfast options and cakes, especially for vegan and vegetarians. Although sometimes a bit pretentious and pricey for what actually arrives on your plate

Been a few times, smoothies and drinks all lovely and tastey, healthy food. Love the interior and style especially upstairs in a sunny day :) can take a while when it's busier but that's just to be expected

With just 3 people infront of me I waited nearly 15 minutes to get my coffee. The girl on the till could not work out a Boston Tea Party gift card so everyone behind the counter stopped to get involved, no luck for the gift card lady, had to pay cash. This is not the first time I have had... More

I went here last week for breakfast. My impression was not cheap but fairly nasty. The best first. I had a bacon and egg roll which was quite nice. Tasty nice roll with plenty of lean bacon and a well cooked egg. Now the bad. The place is a bit of a dump. You go upstairs to eat so it's... More

Once gain, my compliments to your Chef! The sweetcorn hash with haloumi was perfect and my friend really enjoyed his Persian Lentil Soup. On the housekeeping side- your table numbering is now so much better, the general cleanliness has improved , even the toilets are better (i was moaning about all this before!). Well done and see you soon.

Disappointing eggs royal. The food looked great, but it took ages and then was cold (cold eggs, cold toast, cold sauce). For the record a cold poached egg tastes like mucous. My partner's food arrived 10 minutes after mine, and his was warm, but not exactly hot. Staff were friendly, but rushed off their feet. Hire more staff and I... More

Called in on the recommendation of a friend. Not disappointed, very reasonable cakes and sandwiches and the coffee was great. Staff very friendly and service very prompt. Great mixture of people using the establishment from students to the elderly. Beats any of the big chains.

We went for an early breakfast here last Sunday (the hotel charge never included breakfast, they wanted an additional fee of £15.95 per person, which I thought was too steep) and I so glad that we did, the breakfast was delicious!

Boston Tea Party is a small family owned independent cafe group serving simple well-prepared food & drinks made with great ingredients, skill and love. Ethically sourced, affordable, feel-good & excellent quality - made from scratch onsite everyday by people who care about what they do. BTP Exeter is one of largest Bostons - not that you can tell from the bustling & busy downstairs. It is the vast & imposing upstairs dining room that proves the real draw to the discerning folk of Exeter. Plenty of room to spread out.
