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, wraps & sandwiches, 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 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 chalkboard, 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 purpose and motto, and deliberate in sharing that lifestyle to create the 'Live Vibrantly Movement'. Get the inside scoop, here.
