Laney & Lu is a vibrant food community cafe located in historic downtown Exeter, NH. Our menu includes small-batch locally-roasted organic fair trade coffee, herbalist-designed organic herbal teas, crafted functional beverages, sublime smoothies and smoothie bowls, hearty rice & quinoa bowls, bright & happy salads, and finally! good-snacks-on the go.
At Laney & Lu, we believe food can serve a far greater purpose than to simply fill our stomachs. The 'right' food nourishes our souls, builds community, and connects us with the earth. We work with about over a dozen farmers and merchants throughout New England to source locally whenever possible and positively impact local eco-systems. We utilize compostable to-go packaging with a commitment to being 'zero waste' to the customer. We believe Laney & Lu can make a meaningful and sustainable difference.
The café’s design is bright, clean and inviting with reclaimed wood shelves and a repurposed community bench blended with a large hand drawn chalk board, minimalist industrial chairs, and daily inspirational messages hand-written on a roll of brown kraft paper. It's a perfect fusion of old and new, comfort and chic.
From the seed of creation of the café, we have been mindful and true to our motto - 'Eat consciously. Live vibrantly.' and deliberate in sharing that lifestyle to create the 'Live Vibrantly Movement'.
we celebrate community and the connection food has to creating a more joyful, vibrant life. We use fresh, whole ingredients to create DELICIOUS food and drink that nourishes your body and feeds your soul.
EAT CONSCIOUSLY. LIVE VIBRANTLY.
