We have met here as work colleagues on quite a few occasions. The food is consistently good, varied and very reasonable. It is called the Dinosaur cafe as they don't go on social media or take cards so take cash with you. It's middle eastern...More

Lived right opposite this store for a year. They had great coffee and a very homely vibe in the cafe. The owners run it i believe and they are very warm friendly people

had the veggie breakfast and home-made hummus and found both excellent value, very good coffee and carrot cake too - wonderful way to start a day's sight-seeing in Exeter. Very friendly and attentive service.

I choose the Dinosaur on the basis of it's TA reviews, and I just cannot understand how my experience was so different. Perhaps we ordered the worst thing on the menu, the Turkish breakfast, which was quite disgusting, but food quality aside, even the portion...More

There is a car park opposite the restaurant - although it doesn't belong to The Dinosaur, it's a public car park. Have a quick look on google maps, it's literally a 30-second walk away.
