Birthday celebrations have been held to mark the first anniversary of Exmouth Plantbased, a vegan and vegetarian café, in the High Street.
Café owner Ash Haines opened the café a year ago after coming up with an idea of offering people a healthy alternative to eating out.
At its launch last year, he said: “Vegetarian friends mentioned that there was nowhere in the town that specifically caters for them. An idea sparked us off, which spiralled into opening a café.”
After whipping up a birthday cake for customers, Ash said the café will this year launch its new website and also offer breakfasts.
“The last year has been better than we had hoped,” said Ash. “There are a lot of vegans locally that we weren’t aware of; it’s been great.”
