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.
I was excited to be on Exmouth market, where locals tend to be sartorially gifted and creatively inclined; it’s frankly just a bloody cool place to be. Exaggerated further by hot-shot restaurants like Moro, Moro’s sister Morito, & Bonnie Gull’s Seafood Café. I’ve been drooling over their Instagram’s for months.
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!
No one seems to know why it’s called Caravan? I’d guess it’s either a smoke screen to attract attention, or it’s a way of showing that all our needs are can come under one roof. Either way, it’s a little charmer and certainly gets a big thumbs-up from me.
