Magdalen Road Exeter

 The variety of shops and restaurants is improving and changing all the time, let alone the structure of the street itself. The street now has a new look with trees, more room for pedestrians, room for cafes to have outdoor seating and wider parking bays. There was, for some time a period of intense disruption for both the traders and the shoppers, but the loyalty of the customers kept them going.
We suggest that you go there and find out what is on offer.
Use them or lose them!

Our website does not exist to sell you anything.

It is an invitation. No more than a desire to share the simple pleasures that life has to offer (as long as it involves food and/or wine!).
Not everybody will have as much fun here as I do, but ...........
...... you might.
You might really enjoy drinking nice wine and be willing to have an adventure to discover more nice wines.
You might enjoy eating delicious food with friends you’ve never met before, seated between walls of wine!
You, like me, may enjoy both.

Leaf Street was established in 2003 ,I became a mum and wanted to build a business that would work around my family, I started making various crafts and selling them at Craft Fairs which led on to selling in peoples homes, I was always being told that I should have a shop which was a pipe dream really, but one day just after I had my third child my husband noticed a shop to let in my favourite independent shopping street. My husband said go for it and he gave me the confidence to go for it and I did !!!! Twelve years on and my children growing up I am still in my little shop, on my favourite Street, Loving what I do. I have always loved finding different items and meeting the very clever people that make them, and then being able to showcase them in Leaf Street. 
Being an independent shop I believe enables us to offers the shopping experience  that people remember and enjoy, and hope that this continues for many a year to come !!
