Caravan Bankside New Zealand trio, Miles Kirby, Laura Harper-Hinton and Chris Ammermann, the team behind the independent Caravan coffee shops in Exmouth Market and on Granary Square, have a third site: the 140-cover Caravan Bankside, a stone's throw from the Tate Modern extension and housed on the ground floor of the old Metal Box Factory. Not just good for coffee - though that is their strength - Caravan is known for its all-day food menus, pizzas, daily bakes and a globally-inspired menu. Breakfast and weekend brunch feature many of the signature dishes that Caravan does so well like baked eggs with tomato pepper ragout and Jalapeno corn bread French toast. The all-day menu (served from noon through to late dinner) includes globally-inspired options such as hot chilli crab claw and farmers cheese, pickled green walnuts and honey. Take a seat at the custom-made marble-topped bar where a weekly changing 'House Cocktail' and 'House Juice' is served from vintage milk pails at the end of the bar.
