    The brunch menu has a great selection of savory dishes. Had the jalapeño cornbread; though it was good the cornbread lacked the jalapeño flavor and spice. Definitely would come back to try others.

    Caravan is a funky cafe with a working coffee roastery in the basement located in trendy Exmouth Market. They take their coffee seriously and slowly filter your order with a fancy presentation. Read more

    Now here's a place that knows how to do a good Aussie brunch. And coffee. My favourite morning spot on exmouth market, even if it can feel a bit cramped when busy.

    Great place for breakfast, smashed avocado and a poached egg on sourdough bread was good but the real highlight are their crisp top/buttery core muffins!
  • Mary Colette N.
    Love this place. Food is always nice. Avocado toast and chickpeas fries are great. Coffee is good too. Must try the brunch. Can be very busy.

    A menu that goes one step beyond the classic fry-up (standout : the cornbread French toast) and excellent coffee, roasted on the premises

    Great coffee (flat white in particular)- I'd try the salmon. Perhaps the service could be a little better on busy days... So don't forget to log-in with the hostess to avoid waiting aimlessly!

    One of the most recommended brunch places in London. Gets a bit too noisy over the weekends but great for business meetings during the week. They roast their own excellent coffee.

    In my personal quest for good coffee I have just come across the best concept/coffee so far in Barcelona; btw they have no sugar in the shop. So if you need sugar you'd better bring it with you .

    Strong contender for best Bloody Mary ever (along with Granger and Co). Breakfast martini comes with buttered sour dough and the cold brew coffee is fabulous. Great outdoor space.

    Cocktails are delicious and simple, with names like Sipsmith all over the menu. Order the Earl Grey Martini, with Sipsmith gin, Earl Grey tea, lemon and egg white or try their Espresso Martini. Read more

    Cannot stress how good the Baked Eggs & Chorizo Ragout is!! I love the food, coffee and vibe of this place. Service is good too. Brunch is best so it gets busy during the weekend. Read more

    Avocado on toast, sounds boring but was actually yum as fuck! Coffee is good too! Service was a bit slow but we had nowhere to be and shit happens. Will definitely go again :)

    Go here if you're looking for a hip brunch spot in the area. The wait is usually not too bad (unlike Breakfast Club), and they have a good brunch menu.

    Great espresso martinis, dinner was ok and desserts were slightly disappointing. We had 18 different dishes from the menu and none of them blew us away. Sounds like brunch is the better option here.
