The Boatyard

Takeaway + Cafe

We have a bigger range of bakery items than ever before due lockdown creativity. You can now order online for delivery within 2 miles or for collection from the bakery during our opening hours.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to provide our normal cafe service but we are able to offer takeaway teas, coffees and freshly baked delights while the bakery is open.


Our team of passionate bakers are still up early every day, baking our delicious breads and pastries, whistling while they work. Come and say hello for your first cup of joe, and grab a freshly baked loaf while you're here. We'd love to see you.

Exercising at the Quay? Pop into the Boatyard cafe for a delicious takeaway. Make sure you’ve got room to try one of the recent additions to our savoury range. Adam’s ever-popular Devon pasties and sausage rolls are now rivalled by some veggie alternatives. Try our cheese & onion pasties or 100% vegan cheese & lentil rolls. Or forget calorie counting completely and enjoy a freshly baked Boatyard croissant or legendary cinnamon bun. Come early - they sell out fast!

Get to know our bread

Though we have industrial mixers, every loaf is scaled and shaped by hand – it takes time but it’s so very worth it! Baking is an ancient skill dating back centuries, crossing many cultures and civilisations but in recent years the popularity of sourdough has undergone a dramatic revival – for good reason.


Long fermentation creates fantastic flavours and really improves the keeping quality without the need for additives. Many people find sourdoughs and other slow-rise bread easier to digest than industrial loaves. Sourdough bacteria break down the proteins in gluten that some people react to, making them more digestible to folks with a sensitivity to gluten.


Alongside our range of bread we make delicious cakes, scones, brioche buns, and pastries. Some of these are served daily in our cafe but we also supply other stockists and food outlets in Exeter! Please get in touch if you would like to enquire about our wholesale options.
