Vintage Doris - cafe caravan
Doris has been providing miles of smiles since 1967. She’s a rare and beautiful vintage food van serving local produce from here in the West Country. We are a planet friendly, ethical family business, with 3 generations all helping out to give your guests a fun and unforgettable experience.
We serve artisan coffee, fairtrade teas and organic produce sourced from our likeminded suppliers in the South West. Our love of cake means we bake it fresh, with natural flavours and no preservatives.

"Wedding in Uffculme, Cullompton EX15
Such friendly people, attention to detail amazing!
5 ⭐️ stars
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!"

Jayne, Donna and Doris provided a wonderful afternoon tea and sweets stand at our Golden wedding anniversary celebrations. Everything was so deliciously homemade and colourful. They took care of everything for us and even provided a last minute table service for the ‘oldies’ amongst us. So cheerful and chatty, it really made our day special and so many lovely comments. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting that extra special touch, thank you ladies!
