About Doris - The Vintage Cafe Caravan

A classic 1967 Cheltenham Sable based in Somerset, Doris has plenty of quirky charm to make any event a fun and unforgettable experience.

We’re proud to be an ethical and sustainable caterer, sourcing our artisan coffee, fairtrade teas and organic produce from likeminded suppliers in the South West.

We provide high quality delicious cakes, treats and beverages.
Such as:
Homemade and freshly baked scones for our cream teas served with Somerset strawberry jam and clotted cream
Rarebit for our high tea, using cheese and porter made in the Cheddar valley
Award winning cakes using fresh, wholesome, natural ingredients
Colourful and creative buffet catering inspired by the seasons

We’re really passionate about cake and try to cater for most tastes and preferences as we don’t believe anyone should have to compromise on cake. Our organic, gluten free, raw and vegan treats are free of all nasty preservatives or substitutes. We can cater for a wide range of dietary requirements, just ask.

100% organic and Fairtrade, freshly ground artisan coffee from Owens Coffee south Devon low impact roastery.

Plastic free, plant based disposables are the norm on board Doris with all our refuse being compostable or recyclable.

Doris can operate virtually anywhere by using renewable sources for our energy supply.

As owner operators we accompany Doris to provide a personal, cheerful service. We are flexible to requests and have a can do attitude to mixing it up to provide a truly unique experience for you and your guests.

We have the highest level 5 FOOD HYGIENE RATING and are fully licensed and registered with our local council. £10 million public & product liability insurance. Level 3 in Food Hygiene and Safety. We are members of the Nationwide Caterers Association and Federation of Small Businesses.

Such friendly people, attention to detail amazing!

Coffee cart after dinner for coffee, tea and delicious espresso martinis. Came back the following morning for roast bar and proper barista coffees! (Cappuccino etc). They couldn’t have offered a better service, even coming the day before to meet us and chat through finer details. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough, one of the best aspects of our wedding weekend!

Our competitors really loved this retro 'cafe'

Gorgeous vintage caravan selling delicious home made cakes. The best coffee I've had and a wide variety of teas. Charming people, reliable, punctual and a great hit with our spectators and competitors. Will definitely ask them again.

Delicious coffees and cakes

I wasn't sure how a quaint vintage caravan was going to serve modern coffees but not only were they delicious but they were served very efficiently and friendly too. Thank you for bringing Doris to our Pony Club event Sam, I would definitely book you again and will recommend you to others . A star attraction and a pleasure to have. Yummy carrot cake too!
