Don’t postpone happiness.

Wise words from a friend in 2007 that sent me on a path that would change the landscape of my life forever.  From that point forward, I escaped the grip of my corporate career, simplified everything, and founded two companies in alignment with my soul's passion and purpose. I optimize my wellness with daily practice and create balance through living a life fully integrated with the people and things that I love the most. My mission is to inspire and help others to do the same.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe in moving beyond limits, fueling joy with experiences, and that adventure is in all things.

 

Can food really inspire a movement?

 

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'.  

 

OUR PURPOSE

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.
