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

Sunday & Bank holidays 9am - 2pm
Come and join us
Exercising at the Quay? Pop into the Boatyard cafe for a delicious takeaway. Enjoy a freshly baked Boatyard croissant or legendary cinnamon bun (also available in a plant based variety!) Come early or even pre-order online - they do 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.
