Have you been to Caravan in Exmouth Market? I am sometimes laughed at for loving brunch too much, but this place backs me up.
It’s about a fifteen minute walk from King’s Cross station – I met K there one Saturday morning before she jumped on a train to Yorkshire. If you’re craving proper breakfast food but want a refreshing upgrade on the standard fry up, Caravan is the spot.
Start, as lots of good mornings do, with a Bloody Mary…
I had a fresh carrot, apple and ginger juice and it was scrumdiddlyumptious. I often think that fruit juices in London restaurants are a rip off – you get a small portion of something that doesn’t taste special for a big price. I was very pleasantly surprised by the juice here. A generous glass, and really delicious.
Food arrived quickly – for me a countryside feel, carbier (can I use that as a word?!) twist on Eggs Benedict.
Ham hock hash, poached eggs, peas and honey mustard hollandaise.
K had avocado on toasted sourdough, with olive oil and chilli flakes…
And she ordered some extra bacon to pop on top (fantastic shout).
Great eggs, and the potato hash was exactly what I wanted it to be.
Oh, did I mention we also had a side of sausages? Why not. I love it when a restaurant has a good selection of side orders – it lets you get more creative.
All rounded off with one of the prettiest coffees I’ve had in ages.
Next time I go to Caravan I’ll be trying the coconut bread with fresh strawberries and lemon curd cream cheese. Doesn’t that sound amazing?
Happy Halloween everybody! If you want a giggle, check out these sexy food themed costume ideas…
