Housed within a Grade II listed Victorian Grain Store, Caravan King’s Cross was the first restaurant to open within the King’s Cross Partnership Development behind St Pancras/King’s Cross Station. Designed with the building’s history in mind we have created a soft industrial dining room, combined with an open kitchen and coffee take-out bar. Our outdoor terrace sits directly on Granary Square and is enhanced by a beautiful fountain installation. Serving our signature well-travelled breakfast, brunch, all day food and drink menus alongside freshly roasted coffee, you are welcome to dine or drink with us anytime!

Lively and informal, with friendly staff. The menu is wide ranging and my friend and I were able to enjoy a really healthy but exceptionally tasty lunch.

I have been a loyal and happy client of Caravan since its exception at Exmouth Market. I took my friend to the Kings X restaurant was and our experience was not a good one. Although the service from the waiting staff was very good, we really went to Caravan assuming we would enjoy a nice breakfast. We ordered the vegetarian breakfast. Not only was it tepid verging on being cold, it was obvious that items had been precooked some time before we ordered eg mushrooms, haloumi, toast etc. It was awful and also expensive ie nearly £13 each. Unfortunately our waiter was on her break when we paid.

We enjoyed our meal at Caravan. The staff were really friend, helpful and efficient.
We arrived after an evening concert at Kings Place so not too busy and a pleasant relaxed atmosphere.

The second time I had been to this restaurant and again the food was delicious and the waiting staff were very friendly and helpful . Only very small criticism was that this time the music was really just a bit too loud! Really enjoyed the music and ambience the first visit and that was one of my reasons for returning. Overall it was an enjoyable evening.

Table for four we opted for the whole menu of the small plates. It was an excellent journey for the palate. Food was great- not a dud dish. Desserts were sublime and service good. I had a good memory of Caravan s couple of years back, I think the good may be better now.

Every visit to Caravan in Kings Cross has been spot on. The service is always wonderful, starting with the little things like putting fresh water on the table without having to ask for a refill, and clearing anything no longer needed on the table off quickly, to the servers knowledge of the menu, and the personable and engaging manner with which they work. The food is truly amazing. I'm vegan, so it is fair to say that I have had some 'interesting' meals when eating out, and that's me being diplomatic. But the kitchens plant based creations at Caravan in my opinion is utter mastery with the use of their flavors, and their variety. Even when I'm sharing the vegan plates (which is marked as plant based on the menu) with non-vegans eating with me, they gush how flavorsome and delicious it all is, as well as gushing about their own 'meaty dishes'. The bar team really know how to mix a cocktail - the margaritas are a little too easy to drink down to being just so tasty. The ambiance is lovely, the low lit candle filled restaurant strikes a great atmospheric balance. Overall I highly recommend this place, and I look forward to going back there soon.

Our second time at this popular restaurant, which is convenient for St Pancras and the British Library. Nice atmosphere, friendly and efficient service but food rather ordinary and menu no different from our last visit. I think we’ll try somewhere different next time we are in the area.

We were a party of 4, two meals arrived, but then we had to ask the waitress where the other two were after waiting 5 minutes or so. She said they had been forgotten and gave us some free drinks, however by the time the meals arrived, the first two meals had been finished. There was no apology or proper explanation.

Great and peaceful spot. Food was outstanding. Coffee was delicious. Waiters a bit forgetful and we found it confusing that everyone did not wear an apron.

We loved the atmosphere outside.

Slightly noisy for me, but love having the really interesting small plates - all of which very good. Esp cod croquettes and the cauliflower! Excellent choice for a reasonably priced lunch

Great food in a lovely location. I was slightly nervous about the food options prior to visiting as I'm not always very adventurous with food, however, I was pleasantly surprised as the food was (mostly) fantastic. Didn't like the tofu. It had the consistency of marshmallows..........
But overall a great experience.

Nice setting on the square, but slow service and very poor value dishes. I suppose two meat balls justifies a plural form on the menu, but four quid per tiny meatball is still a bit of a joke.

Food was fine but we were not told on arrival there was a time limit. We were later very abruptly and aggressively told we had to shortly vacate our table. When my champion complained to the member of staff there was no apology. We had to find out from the waiter that she was the floor manager. Our evening was effectively spoilt.

This place has a real buzz. The food is excellent and the service is great. I took US friends who were attending a conference in London here for lunch - they loved the delicious, healthy food and the ambience. Thank you Caravan.

The food and service were very good, I have no complaints. However, the ladies toilets were far from good. One of the cubical doors would not lock and the top;let bowl in the other cubical was blocked. The only way to avoid complaints in a busy restaurant is to have someone check them regularly.

Nice place for brunch. Staff were very friendly and service was quick.
Food was good on the whole. Eggs were a touch overcooked for my liking. The fruit juices were delicious but why were they were served in a plastic beaker with a straw?!!

We thought the food was excellent, although a bit pricey. Very noisy.
We were given a glass of Prosecco when we arrived, as we were celebrating my birthday. How lovely, we thought! They then, of course, appeared on the bill at the end. Left a bitter taste to be honest.
