Route 2 Cafe in Topsham

Route 2 Cafe in Topsham, Devon

Another new cafe!

What is happening with all these new cafes popping up? More places for quality cafe time can only be good I say!

Route 2 is a new cafe in Topsham.

But is it quality cafe time?

Yes, for two reasons. One is good quality food and drink and the second is a bit radical. They say they are open from eight till eight and serve food all the time – and they are and they do! After going to so many cafes that either close early or stay open but put tables on chairs and clean around you with an hour to go before their advertised closing time, a cafe that is fully open as stated is a treat.

The cafe is busy too and the service is pleasant and attentive without being annoying. Their Dutch apple cake is excellent and is the real thing too. A good feature is that lcoal foods and wines are stocked. Including Topsham’s own Pebblebed Wines.

Continental in style, the cafe has strong and weak drink available and food is served all day. Close to the quay for parking or bus, and not far from the station either.

Which Route?

The name refers to the cycle route that runs through Topsham. You can hire bicycles from the cafe and either pedal up an appetite or fortify yourself for a long ride.

Topsham is a lovely place to visit and has good cycle routes and public transport links from Exeter too.

Making models and playing tabletop games since the late 1960s, and still enjoying it! Now working in heritage and dabbing around with photography, with quality cafe time when I can.
