For Londoners, the original Caravan in Exmouth Market was a schooling in how to do brunch properly, and the all-day menu of modern dishes (with the odd Asian twist thrown in) are excellent. The coffee’s roasted on-site, and there’s a vibe that’s perfect for a casual lunch with friends or a drink and a snack. Brunch at the weekends is legendary, though do be prepared to get there early or face a wait.
