It’s about time WIMH revealed a little more, and we’re not talking mini skirts or spaghetti straps. Having spilled the secrets of our pre-summer satchel (if you missed it catch up here), hold tight for a tour of our favourite places…
We can often be found roaming the streets of Exmouth Market, in search of the latest quirky home, fashion or food triumph – so it’s safe to say we know our stuff.
For coffee connoisseurs…you won’t find better than Caravan, the restaurant, bar and roastery, spilling out from the corner of Exmouth Market. Whether it’s a flat white (the coffee of choice for our CTO) or a cheeky hot chocolate, the genius baristas at Caravan can whip up almost anything. For those who need a more regular fix they also sell bags of beans to go so you can re-create the Caravan experience from the comfort of your own home (well minus the latte-art that is!).
For something a little different… it has to be G N Furniture, the hidden gem of Exmouth Market, retailing the very best in mid-century modern lifestyle pieces. If we’re not descending on G N Furniture for an impromptu photoshoot, we’re finding any excuse to drop in and play with Ron, the most adorable Daschund around. Well worth a visit if you ask us.
For letting our hair down… we love nothing better than a passionfruit cocktail from Dollar Grills & Martinis, the American style restaurant on the corner of Exmouth Market. We’ve heard the gourmet grill is one of the best in town, but it’s the downstairs Las Vegas/Sex in the City style cocktail bar we can’t get enough of!
For some of the finest food around… our restaurant of choice is the bustling tapas haven, Morito. Grab yourself a window seat for some super-stylish people watching, order 6 or 7 (we’ve been assured this isn’t too many) dishes to share, and enjoy a little bit of authentic Spanish charm. FYI, we’re rather partial to the lamb and prune tagine if you must know.
For that little bit of luxury… We love jewellery shop Mc Caul. All the charm and tradition of a small family jeweller, but with designs, both custom made and off-the-shelf, to rival those of any big name. With their workshop on-site, we highly recommend giving this place a visit, preferably with man+wallet in tow. Our CEO has first hand experience of just how many brownie points a piece of jewellery from Mc Caul can get you!
