The Real Food Store, Exeter, opened on Wednesday for the first time. I visited yesterday and was hugely impressed - great cafe on the first floor, smiling enthusiastic staff, amazing food and overall a wonderful experience.
No pictures of the brownies as we snaffled them so quickly but they were independently voted in a blind tasting by four people to be the Best Brownies Ever! Really very chocolately indeed - just right level of moist interior and slightly crispy exterior and wonderful texture - and no nuts - even better in my opinion.
These were some of the other goodies I bought (obviously on a health kick...no, I just knew my Riverford veg box would be arriving the next day...) Handmade chocs from Teignmouth, Teonie's giant and tiny cookies Love the shape of the white loaf. I added the pastrami, cheese and cornichons to the sourdough roll. Makes it look a bit 70s.
Real Food Store is just down from Sofa Workshop, near the bus station, opposite the entrance to the Underground Passages.
Go, eat brownies, enjoy!
