Zingy brunches and precariously stacked burgers make up just a small portion of Giraffe’s offerings. Their friendly atmosphere is the perfect place to relax and get together with friends. Alternatively, go wild with their World Tapas deal and order five to get a free bottle of wine.
The Duck Truck
A place that does exactly what it says on the tin – the Duck Truck sells mouthwatering recipes all based around “the new poultry in town”. With unique tastes on the side like pomegranate salad and asian slaw, you could definitely say this place has been a ducking success.
Konditor & Cook
Owner Gerhard Jenne spends his days at Konditor & Cook creating cakes that look far too good to eat. You’ll find fruity tarts, gooey chocolate brownies and freshly baked sponges to feast on here.
For an upmarket dining experience, head to La Chapelle. It’s set in the stunning 19th Century grade II listed St. Botolph’s Hall and serves signature French dishes like Lasagne of Dorset Crab and Tagine of Squab Pigeon. One to visit if you’re looking to impress.
Everyone loves a doughnut but Crosstown uses a hybrid recipe of sourdough and fresh bakers’ yeast to create the perfect crunchy outside and fluffy inside. A must-try is the dark rum-glazed doughnut, topped with a roasted pineapple slice. An extra bonus? Most of their doughnuts are vegan.
