An import from New Zealand, Caravan roasts their own coffee beans, but also serves a full-blown restaurant menu of dishes that take cues from different world cuisines - everything from miso-glazed pork to eggplant bhaji and duck confit. The original Exmouth Market location is a convenient spot with neighbourhood vibes, while the King's Cross restaurant’s industrial feel makes it better for lively brunches with friends.
