Breakfast #2- Caravan

...a man cup of coffee after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.

And that's strictly filter coffee and none of that Americano shoddiness. A cup that has been 'dripped' using freshly ground coffee beans is one of the few things that we all take for granted and by the love for caffeine; Caravan serves it and they roast their own beans. Massive tick for that alone.

I could quite easily live near Exmouth Market, not too far away from work..

…and a lovely church.

No stuffiness here and excellent service observed.

CARAVAN FRY UP
TWO EGGS ANY STYLE, THICK CUT BACON, SLOW ROAST
TOMATOES AND CREAMY SOY MUSHROOMS ON SOURDOUGH OR
GRAIN TOAST –– £8.00

Daughter thought this was the best breakfast she’s had. Although labelled as a fry up, it’s not strictly so- where are the goddamn sausages and beans? She was right though, her platter was very good.


My two poached eggs on grain toast with a side order of an abattoir favourite. I’m a fussy grump but the otherwise perfectly poached eggs were served too cold. The smoked black pudding was an awe-full sight; quite the best thing I’ve had for a long time.

She loved the place and so did I. Highly prized. Lunch or dinner with booze awaits yours truly. Thank you Dos Hermanos.

The fry-up's not just missing sausage and beans, it's also missing black pud and a fried slice. Next time you venture to Exmouth Market, pop into Medcalf, proper British scran.

I love this place but have yet to try the food. It's definitely top of the list for my next weekend brunch venue. At the moment I'm trying to limit myself to one of their exquisite filter coffee's a week.

Mr N- and not to mention the grossly underrated fried bread. Thanks, will give Medcalf a go.

Jo- Hi there Jo and thank you for your comments. Filter coffee is indeed king IMO, do give the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe a go, it's utterly embracing.
