11 Parade, Exmouth EX8 1RS, UK
Branding itself as an independent espresso bar, newsagents, and plant store, Cabin News is clearly so much more. Even spending just half an hour inside you'll see the number of locals who not only rely on it for their daily paper, a great cup of coffee, and maybe the odd Kit Kat, but also for a warm welcome and a friendly interaction.
Exmouth isn't known for its speciality coffee scene but the South West (by which we mean Devon and Cornwall) is fast becoming a coffee destination. With independent cafés like this opening up you can see why. In smaller towns like Exmouth, it makes sense to diversify in to different avenues (though they may not always be as eclectic as Cabin) but it doesn't take away from the essence of a local shop.
If you're already in Exmouth then you should definitely pay a visit. If you're not? It wouldn't do you any harm to stop by: you'll get nice company, great coffee, and a lovely setting.
