An opening date has been announced for one of Manchester’s most anticipated restaurants this summer.

Caravan, an award-winning, all-day dining spot, is set to open its floor-to-ceiling windows and doors in just over a month. Located in the up-and-coming St John’s neighbourhood, it’s the first Northern England location for the London-based restaurant group.




The concept was first brought to London in 2009 by New Zealanders Chris Ammermann, Laura Harper Hinton and Miles Kirby and is known for its all-day dining offering and Antipodean specialty coffee. The Manchester location will have a 200-seat capacity and will be located close to Aviva Studios and luxury Greek restaurant Fenix.

Caravan officially opens on Monday 19th August, but ahead of the opening they are also offering customers a huge discount. The team will be testing their kitchens from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th August and are giving 50% off the bill in exchange for feedback for those who sign up to visit below.

It is an all-day venue in Manchester’s new St John’s development and features two all-day dining areas, a bar, a private dining room with a turntable, two outdoor terraces, a coffee takeaway bar and a coffee roastery.

Diners can enjoy what the restaurant group calls a “well-traveled” menu, from breakfast to dinner. The brunch menu includes fresh fruit, grain bowls and Jalapeño Cornbread with fried egg and chili butter. All can be accompanied by Caravan coffee or even an espresso martini or two.

Caravan is known for its coffee programme, with a roastery that focuses heavily on ‘sustainable, responsible sourcing’ and building strong relationships with farmers in coffee growing regions around the world. The team will be setting up their second roastery in Manchester, with the aim of providing beans and specialist training to coffee shops and restaurants in the North of England.
