Caravan Cafe, inspired by southern Europe, looks aesthetically pleasing. A plant lover’s hub, lit with candles, with seating inspired from Little Venice in Mykonos, this 38 seater sports a unique yet therapeutic look.
Caravan Cafe allows you to travel the world from the moment you step in. It lights up your mood with its diverse menu, and experience.
The industrial warehouse structure-meets-southern Greek here. What’s exciting is that the cafe provides a fully immersive outdoorsy experience while keeping everything indoors. There’s a retractable roof that allows you an open-sky dining experience, combined with good music and adequate natural lighting. Keep an eye out for the tiny flags that signify each country’s special dish, waiting to take you around the world.
“Our vision is to make Caravan Cafe a one-stop-shop for entertainment.... From the cuisine to the ambience, musical gigs and travel workshops that are planned in the coming days. Caravan Cafe is all about travellers. All these things that I have had around the world, I try to bring those here in Caravan Cafe so that Kolkatans in this time of Covid can experience it. Anybody who is fond of travelling will love this cafe. Nature is not limited to a particular segment of people, it’s open to everybody. This is a thematic cafe which will help you enjoy the winter without any inconvenience,” said Bhaskar Deb and Payal Deb Sensarma, owners, Caravan Cafe.
