The owner of the cafe has spent much of his life traveling to the far corners of the globe, accumulating antique furniture and objet d’art as he went. Is rich collection now decorates his newest establishment, giving it a unique vibe: a combination of art gallery, antique store and café bar.
Caravana sits in a small soi that runs between Charoenkrung Road and Klong Pradung Krung Kasem, the outer canal of Rattanakosin Island). Walk down Soi 35, past the warehouses and you will eventually come across the wooden shutter doors of Caravana. Originally, the small shop-house was used as a rope factory, long gone out of business.
Now the factory has been transformed into a vintage cafe that serves extraordinary drinks and home made cakes, brownies, pies, almond tarts and more. The signature drink of the cafe is called Prince Hazel, a mixture of rich milk chocolate and hazelnut and a shot of espresso with a slight touch of brandy.
Operating 2 floors with the limitation of 24 seats, sitting in the café, sipping tea, coffee or a cocktail, you cannot but feel transported back to the golden years of travel.
