I cannot say enough about this establishment other than I really wish they would open one in Portsmouth. The food is consistent, staff friendly, and the location is great with plenty of on site parking.

Beautifully presented - huge breakfast bowls with imaginative combinations of natural ingredients. You won't be disappointed. Outside tables permit you to dine with your well behaved dog.

I can't begin to explain how good this place is.... The smoothies are delicious and the food is of the highest quality, using local and fresh ingredients. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. I ate here several times during my visit.

All food is delicious especially their small tasty open faced sandwiches and acai bowls. Really great place to get some work done, meet up with friends, or enjoy a good book. Also cool outdoor space in the back!

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'.
