This is my favourite cafe in Goa and maybe even India. Excellent and I mean excellent coffee. My favourite is the Latin Quarter Premium but the Robusta and Mestizo are great too. They have several interesting set breakfast menus from English breakfasts to more local...Goan inspired ones. But my new favourite is the eggs Benedict. Probably a better option really as it leaves you room to squeeze in a croissant and a plate of pancake if desired. Regular food is five-star too, special mention for the pepperoni pizza and carbonara pasta though their local cuisine of xacuti and roulade is spot on too. Can get a bit busy but a good indicator of how well the food is appreciated. Always warm and friendly hospitality. Looking forward to returning though just returned from the place myself.More

Small but very impressive cafe serving authentic coffee and all day breakfast. It’s tucked in a tiny street off the MG Road in Panjim and boasts of a old warm charm. Cafe is very aesthetically designed but a bit cramped. If you like the real...coffee - this is the place. Aditya Tiwari was a great host guiding various offerings. Very pleasant and eager to help.

This review is of their joint in Margao as they haven't opened a TripAdvisor page. So compelled to pass on the message via the Panjim route: The ambience is special as it conveys a unique cafe experience. The sandwiches are not worth ordering. The pulled...pork is much better. The potato chops are over fried and the croquettes are lack lustre. The pizzas are just about okay. Terrible are their staff who lack knowledge of customer service and etiquette. The service staff seat and chat on vacant customer tables when customers are around. Turn their back on customers while they are dining. Some keep watching when the customer is eating not leaving any private space. And they play with their ordering pens in front on the customers. Their tone when taking orders is arrogant. There seems to be no supervisor or the owner to oversee them. It's like when the cats are away the mice will play. Perhaps the owners themselves need to get trained in restaurant service and decorum.More

There are many coffee cafes in India now - all claiming to make good coffee - but this little one on 18th June Road in Panjim, Goa could easily give most of them a run for their money. Their cakes are not bad .... a...bit oversweet ... but the premium coffee is about the best I've had in India .... comparable only to coffee I used to get at Curious Life Coffee Roasters in Jaipur. Used to because once they opened a new outlet, their origin shop seemed neglected and managed only by their staff who don't seem to have as much invested as the owners. Thankfully, the coffee at Caravela left me craving for more ... and also gives a real option in Goa for excellent coffeeMore

My fiancé took me to this cute cafe in Panjim, and upon entering we already felt a beautiful energy in that place and we were also warmly welcomed by the staff. The English breakfast was amazing!! Coffee taste so smooth! And the finale was the...Apple Tart, oh my GOSHELICIOUS ! Best Apple Tart I ever had, you can taste it’s home-handmade. But the best was, while eating there with my fiancé, they we’re playing Christmas song, that brought tears of joy in my heart, as a child my parents use to play this music, it brought so much joyful memories of these years. they will forever be in my heart. Thank you Caravela Cafe for making that day so special!!More

We visited for lunch and were really happy with the flavours and taste of our order. The pork balchow was really the best we've had. The sandwiches were really out of the world. I tasted and purchased three packets of Home blends of coffee, which...were among the best I've tasted. Thanks to Carlos and his family Caravela is a must place to visitin Panjim as well as Calangute. We wish them all the best.More
