Here, we have curated a list of some of the highest quality restaurants in Exeter where the vegetarian food will blow your mind. We have your whole day covered, with options for breakfast, lunch and dinner so that you’ll never go hungry or feel uninspired by vegetarian food.

Lloyd’s Kitchen

This independently owned restaurant brings something new to the food scene. Stylish, relaxed and serving fresh food prepared to order, Lloyd’s Kitchen’s menu includes a unique range of different vegetarian options as well as sandwiches and light bites. Their evening options are slightly less accommodating to vegetarians, so perhaps bear that in mind if you’re looking to make an evening reservation.
