Route 2 Cafe Bar

This licensed eco-café, formerly the Steam Packet Inn, offers an alternative eating and drinking venue that appeals to young and not-so-young alike.
Selected by The Guardian as 'one of the top 10 cycling cafés in the UK', we are located just off Topsham Quay, a stone's throw from the River Exe estuary, directly on the National Cycle Network Route 2 cycle path that connects Exeter, Exmouth and the whole of the West Country.

However you reach us -- by bike, foot, car, or boat -- Route 2 is open from 8am every day. Join us for the famous Route 2 breakfasts, for morning coffee, lunches freshly prepared from locally sourced foods, fabulous Devon cream teas, as well as excellent local drinks, from tea, coffee and juices to a pint of local ale or a glass or bottle of superb wine.

Closing time is 5pm Monday to Friday and 6pm on weekends. On events nights we close later. If in doubt give give us a quick call on 01392 875085.

Cycle hire is available in an adjoining building.
