  • Visitor Information

GiraffeThe warm and colourful Giraffe restaurants are popping up all over London - there are more than twenty around town - adding a splash of colour to the city's dining scene. Spread over two floors, the Soho version includes a lighting installation made from recycled pickled jars and a cedar plank sharing table within the downstairs bar. The all-day menu is a winner - you can breakfast on organic porridge, pop in for coffee or cocktails as well as eating from a menu of globally inspired dishes and good-for-you food. The menu extends from burgers to really tasty freshly squeezed juices, blueberry pancakes to stir fried udon noodles. Portions are big so if you can't manage a whole three course meal then starters like the spicy chicken wings and vegetarian mezze are good options. There's a special menu just for kids too. Your ravenous tots can choose from a brunch of fried or scrambled eggs, beans, veggie or pork sausages, or mini-mains like fish fingers and pasta. It may appeal to a parents looking for somewhere to keep the kids happy but that doesn't mean it's overrun with tots and teens, and adults are made to feel welcome too.
