About Us

Wendy and Christian Pilling have lived in Exmouth since August 2002.  We moved into our current premises in 2008.


We opened the cafe, The Book Rest, late in 2008 and the combination of the 2 business’s has helped us to share our passion for great books and super food.  We opened our full kitchen in 2014, and have continued to apply our our vision of quality home cooking, local produce and the best caring level of service we are able to provide.  We hold a 5* rating from the local council, as well as having many excellent reviews and many returning customers.  We are a family run business our daughter manages the cafe, Wendy has the overview and Christian is the head chef and baker.
