Giraffe Restaurant in High Street Kensington

After watching Delia Smith’s Waitrose advert for pancakes, and colleagues mentioning how they enjoyed cooking pancakes for pancake day, I had a massive craving for them. My boss mentioned that the best place locally to get some is Giraffe restaurant. Luckily, this one on Kensington High Street is a couple of minutes from Kensington Gardens. So, after a long walk in the park, decided to go and get some food here. At first, I resigned myself to not being able to order the pancakes as it’s on their breakfast menu only (and I arrived at lunchtime). I tried my luck, and the waiter said he’ll ask whether they can make me some specially. Luckily, they did and I had a plate with a tower of pancakes stacked on top of each other with bananas between the layers and blueberries on top. One word – DELICIOUS 🙂 It does get a bit crowded inside as a lot of families with kids go here, but it didn’t bother me. I was particularly impressed with the male waiters, very friendly and one even came to say goodbye as he finished his shift. I’m already planning my next pancake fix!
