Caravan King's Cross

The original opened up in Exmouth Market to great reviews and now they've opened their second restaurant in the renovated Granary Building in King's Cross. As with the original, there is a large coffee roastery on-site which supplies Caravan's coffees and there is inside and outside seating on the square. It will serve a "food well-travelled" menu all-day as well as serving cocktails at the bar.

"The cornbread changed my destiny, at least so far as Caravan is concerned. I now go in there whenever I'm in the area, and sometimes find myself in the area for no other reason." READ REVIEW

" be worthy of the glorious piazza it occupies, either the prices need to be smaller or the plates need to be bigger. If both happened at once, you'd struggle to get a table." READ REVIEW

"I was genuinely surprised how well it was all (well, most of it) done. Brunch has never been a native British preoccupation, and yet neither were burgers or hot dogs or any number of current foodie obsessions until certain people just started doing them well. And Caravan, for the most part, is doing what it does very well indeed." READ REVIEW

"In fact, everything here – from the ham hock to the treacle tart, with some more innovative dishes on the way – was a pleasure both to look at, and to taste too." READ REVIEW

" New for this location is a range of excellent pizzas, topped with the likes of smoked trout or pastrami. Home-made bread is a strength: dense soda bread with a chunky ham terrine on minty, smashed peas; cornbread oozing jalapeno butter." READ REVIEW

"Thanks to top notch food, affordable prices and a trendy, upbeat vibe, this one is set to be just as popular (as the original). And if the promised outdoor tables materialise in time, this could well become the hottest alfresco dining spot in London." READ REVIEW
