CARAVAN: Award-winning restaurant group and coffee roastery set to open in Manchester this summer

11 March 2024 by Rhiannon Ingle

There's yet another exciting opening we can all look forward to this year as the stunning all-day dining restaurant group and coffee roastery, Caravan, is set to open in the St John’s district this summer.

Caravan, which boasts an award-winning collection of restaurants across London, are renowned for its all-day breakfast-to-cocktails offer, packed with vibrant, fresh ingredients; and exceptional coffee roasted in-house. 

Guests can indulge in an eclectic, 'well-travelled' menu, spanning breakfast through to dinner with the brunch menu serving up everything you'd want - whether you're a fruit and grain bowl advocate or a fry-up fanatic. The menu offerings are all elevated with globally-inspired flavours such as house favourite Korean style buttermilk fried chicken with kimchi pancakes and gochujang ketchup as well as the very popular fried jalapeño cornbread with fried egg, spinach, curd cheese, mojo verde and chilli butter. Then, to wash it all down, why not try out their ethically and sustainably sourced, great-tasting Caravan coffee to accompany your meal.

But, the lovely lot over at Caravan doesn't just do brunch as an evening at the hotspot includes a menu of freshly crafted cocktails, an extensive international wine list and a selection of hand-picked local beers in a laid-back and buzzy atmosphere. 

To go with your drink, diners can try out some seasoned rice bowls, slow-fermented sourdough pizza and delicious small plates encouraged to share making for a flexible, inclusive dining experience.

Laura Harper-Hinton, co-founder and CEO of Caravan said of the opening: "We are so excited to be taking Caravan on the road to Manchester, but more importantly, we are really looking forward to spending more time in this incredible city. 

"We’ve had nothing but great vibes and support from everyone we’ve come across so far. We’ve chosen a unique location which sits right next to the new Aviva Studios, behind the historic Granada Studios and right in the heart of a growing new district at St John’s. 

"We hope to attract a real cross-section of the city to our beautiful new restaurant and roastery. We’ll be open morning, noon and night and you’re all welcome anytime that suits you!"

The 200-cover space close to Manchester’s buzzing Aviva Studios and much-loved FENIX will house two all-day dining rooms, a bar, a private dining room featuring a turntable and private sound system, two outside terraces, a takeout coffee brew bar and a dedicated coffee roastery.
