Square Meal Review of Caravan King's Cross ?

The King’s Cross location and larger scale of Caravan’s second branch makes its industrial-themed decor of open pipework, metal girders and concrete floors more convincing than at the Exmouth Market original. Part of the fetching Granary Square development, which now houses Central St Martin’s College, the restaurant offers an eclectic run-through of modern dishes from the Mediterranean and Middle East typified by interesting pairings of niche ingredients – from mellow goats’ curd set off by in-their-prime nectarines and sweetly braised onions or a colourful scrum of tomatoes, chickpeas and flatbread pieces accompanied by yoghurt and sorrel to scallop ceviche with sharp lime, sweet-sour tomatillos and a chilli kick. With delectable brunch options (think coconut bread with lemon-curd cream cheese and strawberries), renowned home-roasted coffees, small plates, large plates and everything in-between, Caravan is a true all-rounder.

    The Hungry Porker :: Caravan King’s Cross

    The area behind King’s Cross is at that awkward stage in its transformation where it is on the verge of being the new in-place, but at the moment is just a load of empty office blocks and construction sites. The last time I ate in the new urban hipster hang-out that is Granary Square, was at Grain Store, and I couldn’t get past the industrial and alienating feeling of the place. I was worried I’d get the same from the Caravan here and that it would be a world away from the intimate vibe at the Exmouth Market restaurant. But as soon as I walked in all these worries disappeared. They have managed to warm the space with excellent lighting and by packing the tables in closely together...

  2. Caravan is located just north of Kings Cross station, underneath Central St Martin’s. It faces out onto Granary Square, which had loads of weird events going on – something about the industrial revolution. This seemed to involve dressing pre-pubescent children up as chimney sweeps and someone screeching along to “Who Will Buy” from Oliver. It was a no from me. We arrived at 1pm at Caravan and was told there was a 45 min wait. No worries, I thought, it means I get to spend more time catching up with Amy. However, an hour came and went… We were sat after 90 mins, but I am not really sure it’s worth a 90 min wait. You can go away and they’ll text you when your table is ready, but we were stuck in some pseudo-Victorian nightmare and just wanted to eat...

    little swallow : china doll :: Caravan, Kings Cross

    We headed to Caravan for our lively discussion. Newsflash: two prawns doth not make a dish. No matter how small the plate is. We hadn't realised so many of our selection were fried and crumbed (I blame the pregnant lady) but the best dish in our small selection for me was the lamb gnocchi...

  5. Came here on a weekend for Brunch and it was really packed. Expect to wait for seats. They will give you a bag of coffee beans I believe and you can seat over the bar to have a drink. Best to make sure that the bean bag is visible so the waiters can find you...

  6. The area around Kings Cross station is slowly being regenerated and while some will miss the area as it was before, I won’t be one of them. The grotty, run-down, whore-strewn Kings Cross of yesteryear can’t disappear fast enough. One of the highlights of the new Kings Cross is Caravan in Granary Square, a short walk north of the station. Caravan’s dining room is spartan, but spacious and airy with seriously comfy seats. Although the service is slowly improving, the key word here is ‘slowly’. Waiting 15 minutes for my order to be taken is not my idea of a good time. Although Caravan serves lunch and dinner as well as breakfast, my interest is in the first meal of the day as there are few other interesting breakfast options in the Kings Cross area...

    the dinersaur :: caravan, king

    Having moved into the vicinity of King's Cross Station for several months, I have very quickly fallen in love with the gem that is Caravan, tucked away at Granary Square. The building that Caravan is set in is an old granary store and the interiors of the restaurant have been kept raw and warehouse-like, which gives it a very cool vibe...

    Saying it straight :: Caravan King’s Cross.

    We had a little taxi-drama – he couldn’t find it and we went down a number of dead ends, before working out that one has to walk across the bridge. But the bridge is impressive, especially at night, leading to a water feature which is as wonderful as it is unexpected. I’m glad that there are security guards, though, because on my own, at night, I’m would not feel entirely safe. Notwithstanding the glamification, it is still the back end of Kings Cross. And it’s dark. IMG_2387 The restaurant is contained in the same warehouse building as St Martin’s School of Art. There is a small sign, resting on the wall. I never thought I would say it, but you can take minimalism too far. And once you do actually make it inside, the space is impressive. Industrial chic, with very high ceilings, it has the feel of something you might find in New York. And there is a coffee roastery at the back which I would like to explore...

    Tuck & Vine - Tuck and Vine :: Caravan Kings Cross

    Encased in a monolithic brick building - a restored Granary Building, the interior leaves one feeling like they're sitting inside a 'school dining meets community hall', long-hung lights, trestle tables, paper table cloths, cutlery in buckets. This sensation is somewhat validated by the clientele. At brunch this was a mixture of young families who had tottered down the road from Islington and scraggly loose-knit and camo-clad students, nursing a single shot Gibraltar whilst pillaging the wi-fi. That said, the service is smooth and very friendly...

    inher30s :: Breakfast at Caravan, Kings Cross

    Having never before really explored Kings Cross, it was with some trepidation that I followed my extremely inadequate new Apple Map (Thanks software upgrade) all the way round to Caravan. What a surprise! Fountain jets, wide open spaces and a marvellous new restaurant! Hailing from the Antipodean isles (NZ to be specific), I’m no stranger to the Brunch that has taken on trend status in my new adopted town. So, it seemed only right that I check out their coffee making skills and have some corn fritters...
