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.
Route 2 Café was selected by The Independent as one of ‘Britain’s beat cycling cafes’, and also The Guardian as ‘one of the top 10 cycling cafés in the UK’. Route 2 is 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 Route 2 (by bike, foot, car, or boat), come here to enjoy the famous Route 2 breakfasts, 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.
Special event nights take place throughout the year.
There are also comfortable self-contained apartments if you are seeking accommodation in Topsham.
You can hire bicycles or have repairs done from Route 2 Cycles next door.
