Michelle’s sense of direction can be lacking in times, so when we are away I take control of where we go and how we’ll get there, it works nicely for us. However Sunday morning was different, heading to go get a shower I told Michelle “go find somewhere good for brunch close to King’s Cross”. Being geographically aware she can’t do, but give her an area to work in and she’ll find you brunch! She read out two review’s but we both agreed it had to be Caravan.
After dropping our cases at nearby Euston Station we headed straight to Caravan which is housed in a grade II listed Victorian grain store (heading out between St Pancras and King’s Cross Stations, its a five minute walk). The building itself is a great eating space, a very cool industrial look with great high ceilings. You need to be prepared to wait, we arrived around midday and were told we’d have up to a 45 minute wait. We were lucky, we found a seat by the bar ordered our coffee and our table was ready within 10 minutes.
A great brunch menu, with some really interesting menu options, it was hard to choose. We both opted for the same dish of jalapeño cornbread, poached eggs, sherry corn salsa and a herb crème fraîche – light, fresh and crammed full of flavour. Michelle washed this down with a Breakfast Martini which was served with a slice of sourdough toast and marmalade, while I opted for my favourite, a Bloody Mary.
Despite being busy at no point did we feel rushed, instead what we had was a very chilled out brunch, precisely what you need on a Sunday morning. We highly recommend a visit if you happen to be in the area.
