Our Space

Sacred Grounds is a bright, warm and welcoming space created by the people behind No Guts No Glory - Hayley and Nathan Maker as well as graphic designer Becca Allen.

Nestled at the end of McCoy's Arcade, Exeters historic arcade in the Creative West Quarter of the city. You'll find Sacred Grounds in amongst a community of independent shops, and it's just across the road from No Guts No Glory the project which created the grounding and the ethos behind Sacred Grounds.

Designed to be welcoming to all, the space is full of plants and prints designed by Becca - "The artwork was designed as a homage to our logo and which means sunrise over Sacred Grounds" They are available to buy via the café's website.

The branding and menu design was also curated by Becca incorporating the calming colour scheme and personality of the café. 

The furnishings are specially collected pieces that have all had a previous life reflecting the eco-friendly ethos behind the business.

Sacred Grounds also runs on green energy from the sun, wind and waves, and aims to use every element of the fresh local produce bought in to create different aspects of the menu, like the shrubs and syrups for their alternative drinks menu. The Sacred team also create their own nut-butters, gluten-free waffles & different seasonal specials & smoothies daily.

A place that is welcome to all Sacred Grounds offers a safe space for toddlers to run about, a pram park and wooden toys and books to entertain little folk. You'll find cushions and blankets scattered around for your comfort.

You can choose to sit in the warm vibrant belly of the cafe and watch our team prepare your food and drinks as you relax in the calming surroundings, or sit in the Atrium - under the light pouring from our glass roof amongst plants and between the indie treasure troves that line the arcade.

As our furnishings, tables, menu options and atmosphere vary you can enjoy a different experience every time you visit; with friends, with the company of a good book, or a work email, your pooch or your large family whatever the occasion the time you spend will be Sacred.
