This chilled-out all-day venue has only been around since 2010, but has quickly established itself as a fixture on Exmouth Market, as well as selling its own-roasted coffee to top restaurants
around town. It’s pitched as a kicking café, restaurant and bar with an Antipodean vibe, and the menu reflects London’s enthusiasm for the bright flavours of Asia, the Middle East and the Med in
dazzling combinations – in other words, fusion. Small and large plates are offered, and sharing encouraged. Dig into a squid pancake with Japanese brown sauce and seaweed salt, sweetcorn with
teriyaki butter or Arabica oxtail with crème-fraîche polenta. At breakfast, make it banana caramel porridge or a Caravan fry-up. And the espresso martinis are ‘amazing’.
If All Saints designed a restaurant, it’d look like Caravan – beaten up & broken, whilst in fact – brand new & actually rather expensive. Even so, it made me feel good. Caravan is an Exmouth Market based all day restaurant where you’ll find anything from peanut wontons to grilled octopus. Last week I headed over for a lazy breakfast.Caravan’s brunch menu is intriguing; with salt pork welsh rarebit, spied aubergine with goats cheese and butternut squash, and ham hock hash with honey mustard hollandaise. Guiltily, we ordered the more mainstream dishes, but it was 8am and we hadn’t even had a damn coffee. Luckily Caravan is a specialist in the field of caffeine, complete with an on-site roastery creating Aribica blends to MATCH the season. Would you believe it!...

My Mum and I had tickets for the ballet at Sadler’s Wells theatre and as Exmouth Market is only a short walk away I decided to book us in for a quick bite to eat in Caravan. It’s more than just a restaurant as downstairs in the basement they roast their own coffee beans and my mother (Queen of the latte) can verify that it’s some of the best coffee in London. The restaurant itself was only small but had a great atmosphere and we were served by really friendly staff. The wooden chairs weren’t the most comfortable of things to perch on but I was enjoying myself so much that it didn’t bother me too much...
