Rabbit is the first and only cafe in Exeter with a 100% plant based menu. We serve freshly prepared breakfasts, lunches, soup and desserts. We make our own seitan and our own cheezes and in-house sauces. We have Zapatista coffee and a wide range of organic teas, plus lots of delicious homemade cakes which have earned us a place on Peta’s list of Top 12 Vegan Sweet Treats across the UK.
Rabbit is also the site of the recently 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.
