Giraffe Cafe (or rather, Gilaffe Cafe as as the current sign suggests) appears like a tiny hole in the wall cafe or bakery on the outside. Looks can be deceiving.
Once you pass through the narrow doorway, you are greeted with a smile, given menus as you pass the counter and welcomed into their inner sanctum.

Decor was gorgeous. I was jealous. I'd want my future house to be decorated like this (if I ever build one).
|Love the white-washed timber walls|
|Lanterns, incense sticks and photo frames - reminds me of a beach house|
|Love the Indoors|
You go back out to the counter to order and then you're given a cute animal cutout for your order. Certainly endearing.
Our orders didn't take long to arrive. I had a cappuccino. It was pretty standard.

Even though dessert was a bit of a bust, MerlinFan and I really enjoyed our lunch here. Service was quick and full of smiles, which is always a big plus. I just love the ambiance of this cosy joint - it sure has character and I could sit for hours marvelling at all their quirky wall decor. A great place for a leisurely brunch.
