Customer service is good here, and the coffee is very nice. I like the big open space and wide tables upstairs, but the place is so noisy it is hard to hold a conversation. I brought a business client here for a meeting and we...More

Visited on a Saturday morning for a late breakfast and sat upstairs. Sticky table, uncomfortable chairs, noisy (hard to hold a conversation). Food well cooked. Eggy bread more like fried bread. Quite expensive - so will find somewhere better next time..

Description
Boston Tea Party is a small family owned independent cafe group serving simple well-prepared food & drinks made with great ingredients, skill and love. Ethically sourced, affordable, feel-good & excellent quality - made from scratch onsite everyday by people who care about what they do. BTP Exeter is one of largest Bostons - not that you can tell from the bustling & busy downstairs. It is the vast & imposing upstairs dining room that proves the real draw to the discerning folk of Exeter. Plenty of room to spread out.
