Exeter’s first 100% vegan café, Rabbit, has opened its doors in the city centre – serving up a wide array of mouth-watering dishes from almond and walnut burgers and tofu dogs to curried tofu toasties.


The Rabbit café, located on Wells Street, officially opened it’s doors to the public on Tuesday, October 18, and cafe owner Chris Bellairs, who also runs vegan food shop Seasons in Exeter, said that the opening has been even better than he had expected.

“The café is doing a lot better than I ever imagined and it has been really busy since the doors opened. We have had amazing feedback from customers, a lot of people have said that is feels really homely.” – Chris Bellairs

Rabbit is not only the first cafe in Exeter with a 100% plant based and mainly organic menu, but it is also the site of the recently uncovered remains of the ancient holy well of St Sidwell.


Rabbit will be open from Tuesday to Saturday between 10am and 4pm, and diners will be treated to a wide range of delicious dishes (both healthy and unhealthy so everyone can enjoy them!) from their menu, like their deluxe cheezeburger, spiced chickpea salad and lentil and olive pie.

You can see what the guys at Rabbit are up to on their Facebook page.
