Some of the best things in life are Accidental - Edit

Whenever I’m lucky enough to visit Honiton, I always head to this lovely, very affordable, little family-run café. And if I haven’t time to stop, I get something to take away. The food is home-made – and made with impressive skill and care. This is no fast-food joint dishing up any old stuff, but a café serving tasty, creative and varied meals. And large portions in many cases, so check before you order if you have a modest appetite as there are smaller options. Smoothies are not to be missed; try one of the fruity ones with your meal: gorgeous. Then finish off with some sinful, but yummy, cake. The owner makes fabulous cakes, flapjacks, cornbread, etc and there’s usually something new to try. The size of the sandwich cakes needs to be seen to be believed. With a wide and varied menu, there is something for everyone, even if you’re not vegan or vegetarian – and all at very affordable prices. If you aren’t a veggie, you will still receive a warm welcome at this friendly café. It really is a place for everyone – I have taken a couple of non-veggies there on several occasions who happily testify to that. But for vegans especially, it is incredible to have so much choice. I often struggle to decide what to have because I’d like to have several dishes! There is a solution to that problem, though: the taster plate with a selection of several things, including a small wrap and a small soup. Did I mention the soups? They are home-made, too. The pea soup is especially tasty. The teas and coffees are excellent as well.

I just wish the café had larger premises, then it could welcome more customers to enjoy the amazing food, including anyone who uses a large wheelchair. I hope this café prospers – it certainly deserves to. The family puts a great deal of effort in to providing wonderful, delicious food – some of the best I’ve ever eaten. For me, the only downside is that I don’t live in Honiton, so can’t visit often enough. I wish it was on my doorstep.

Pros: Very affordable, Lots of variety, with choices to suit everyone, Home-made food

Cons: Small building

Lovely vegan food - Edit

We planned a day round a visit to the Accidental Vegan - and we weren't disappointed!

The cafe is small, but with a large range of options. We chose a range of meals, cakes, and drinks - and enjoyed them all.

The owner was friendly and helpful, and and the decor was pleasant making it a nice place to sit for a while.

Recommended to anyone living nearby or visiting the area.

Pros: All vegan, Good range of choices, Friendly helpful service

Cons: May need bigger premises in future!

A very pleasant breakfast. - Edit

My wife and I visited this cafe on the recommendation of our daughter and we were not disappointed.
A pleasant atmosphere, a friendly welcome and excellent food, tasty and all home cooked.
Not only was the food first class but the coffee, served in cafetières, was strong and hot.
Do not miss this place if you are in the area!

lovely little find! - Edit

A group of six of us were down for the weekend and popped in. The team were so friendly, the food was great and the cosy atmosphere was lovely.
Whilst we had to sit separately it was close enough that we could all still talk together.

I wish I lived in Honinton!

Perfect - Edit

Popped through here on a quick food diversion after a day trip away. So glad I stopped. Lasagna, garlic bread and salad were homemade, delicious and fresh. Pot of peppermint tea was a great size; I got 3 cups out of it! The cake was divine. Couldn’t fault it. And all for just under a tenner. Amazing.
The cafe itself was pleasant, if a little lacking in atmosphere. There was no music or background noise so it was a teeny bit awkward being there alone!
Thank you so much for providing such yummy vegan food 💚💚

An Accidental Find! - Edit

We're staying in the area for a few weeks and were so happy to find a vegan cafe nearby (not to mention surprised!). I can't sing the praises of this lovely cafe loudly enough. We went at Sunday lunch time and had an absolute feast, all for under 20 pounds. The food was excellent, the lady who served us was delightful and it was just so reasonably priced we thought they had made a mistake. I really, really hope this cafe survives and prospers because it is tucked away on a side street off the HIgh Street and it is very small - it deserves to be in a prime position where everybody can find it! I don't have a particularly sweet tooth but one thing I did enjoy occasionally pre veganism was a cinnamon roll - a treat I thought was no more - but what did I find for dessert? Yes a vegan cinnamon roll - I was too full to eat it and had to take it away but it was absolutely divine, the best cinnamon roll ever. Good job we're only here for 3 weeks, I'd be too big to get through the door! We're back for lunch next Sunday and we have to fit a breakfast in too. Thankyou Accidental Vegan for giving us an eating out venue where we actually have a choice!

Pros: Great food, Amazing value, Best cinnamon rolls ever

Cons: Tucked away and very small, Not great ambience

Just Amazing! - Edit

Perfect little cafe for any little or big vegan! Nothing was too much trouble and they adjusted items on the menu to satisfy our very tired, very hungry little vegans!
The food was incredible, everything was homemade and utterly delicious, just could not fault a thing, only thing we wish is that it was closer to us as we found it on holiday so probably a bit far too travel for lunch, it would however be totally worth the 2 hour drive!

Wonderful! - Edit

We are so happy to have found this lovely little cafe!
The food is outstanding - delicious, well presented and very reasonably priced... We thoroughly enjoyed our feast of lentil soup with corn bread, mushroom and tamari burger, breakfast burrito, sticky toffee cake, chocolate peanut butter brownie and a slice of 'treacle' tart to takeaway!
Loved the colourful decor and the variety of choice!
Friendly owner, who is obviously putting a lot of care and thought into her business... Great coffee too!
We shall definitely be back - thank you! :-)

Pros: Delicious Food, Great Value, Friendly Owner

Cons: We live too far away!
