Thursday afternoon, 2:30, EU essay planning and a flat white. Grow Coffee House is new to Exeter this year, a shop all about expressing positive ethos through coffee – it was about time it undertook the ‘Lucy Does Law’ test.

Ambience: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It’s as though this coffee house was DESIGNED for working in. High ceilings, lots of table space and lots of people on their laptops, there’s certainty a calming work ethic coming out of this place. Only reason it’s not five stars is due to the music volume. I’m open to a bit of Two Door Cinema club in the background, but the noise was a tad excessive.

Coffee: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

First of all, the glass that my flat white came in gets a big ‘yes from me. The coffee was a bitter, smooth roast and would have been worthy of that five star rating, it just needed to be a bit hotter for my liking.

WiFi: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Wifi was pretty mediocre. Although I loved it for not using an ‘internet log in’ style connection, the internet did drop from my laptop a couple of times (inconvenient when you’re in the flow of an essay and GoogleDrive won’t let you edit!). When it was working, there weren’t any complaints from me.

Aesthetic: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This place was a whole VIBE. Mix of dark walls and bright murals, succulents and filament light bulbs. The mix of tables and comfy sofas give you a more relaxed environment, I just feel like you can’t really wish for much more? LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Overall: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Grow Coffee House is defo a place I will be returning to ASAP! If you’re looking the dream study cafe – this one could just be that.
