The sky cried on our last day in New York City. We could have stayed indoors with all the normal people but we still hadn’t tried a Tempeh Reuben! Those magical, mythical sandwiches that all my favourite American bloggers post about. I wanted one and there was no way I was leaving NYC without one!
I told Dom about the vegan restaurant website I had fallen in love with. We checked their menu and made our plan. Huddled up in our warmest gear and armed with our tourist map, we hit the Subway to the East Village.
Have you ever seen a prettier restaurant website??
Caravan of Dreams was more casual than I’d imagined but every bit as whimsical. Warm and cosy with low ceilings and soft lighting, it was the perfect place to hide out from the storm. It was brunch-time on a Tuesday so we had the place to ourselves and we weren’t complaining.
To warm up I ordered The Good For Everything Tea: a knockout of ginger, cayenne, and lemon with goji, $5. I’m not sure why I didn’t get a snapshot of it – I think I was just too blown away by THE BEST TEA I HAVE EVER HAD!! This was seriously sensational and left me feeling amazing.

Just as I’d finished marveling over the tea, it arrived! Our first ever Tempeh Reuben! Oh so worth the wait!: caramelized onions, Russian dressing, tomato, rye toast, house sauerkraut and pickle, $13.
Thank you for popping my Tempeh Reuben cherry, Caravan of Dreams! We loved every mouthful and created our own version as soon as we got home (check it out HERE).
Only $13 and served with your choice of salad or soup! Dom chose Miso and loved it:
We also shared the Berry Pancakes: two spelt pancakes, grilled banana, fresh fruit and chopped nuts, $10. Delicious!
Fabulous food, happy prices, friendly staff and cozy decor. Definitely worth a walk/sing/dance in the rain for. ♥••*´¨`*•.☆•
