Swap your study spot in Exeter

If youre looking for a place to study, Exeter City Centre has a vast array of great bakeries and coffee shops for you to choose from. Not sure where to try first? No problem, weve helped make your decision a little easier by rounding up some of our favourites.

Quirky independent cafés can be found all over Exeter, offering a unique experience to work in. Why not try 1 Polsloe or the Glorious Art House, both of which serve up delicious brunches to fuel those long study sessions.

Head over to the Quay and you’ll find the Quayside Coffee Shop, an independent café offering delicious food and organic coffee. What could be better than being able to take in the beautiful waterside views while studying!

As well as the independents, there are plenty of chain cafés in Exeter which also prove very popular among students. Try Boston Tea Party, a great study space whether that is for group or solo work.

And finally, for those looking to extend their study session into the evening, we recommend the trendy espresso and wine bar Artigiano. This is always a popular choice among students, and it’s clear why. During the day you can enjoy delicious food and a great selection of hot drinks. The best part is that in the evening, this vibrant coffee shop transforms into a trendy wine and cocktail bar; the perfect place to relax after a long day of studying.
