As always Boston pulls out the stops. I had the delightful poached eggs, avocado and bacon in toast and my girlfriend has scrambled egg with salmon on toast. Great food

The pros: - good space upstairs (in the morning, after that it gets way too noisy to be able to talk properly with someone - at least they don't have piped music like some other coffee shops have though, which would be awful). - Good...More

Bostons seem to use good ingredients but are now quite expensive compared to places like the museum cafe who have upped their game. The savoury portion sizes can be quite mean and the sweet potato fritters are soggy and oily. We used to enjoy lunch...More

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.
