Happy Friday! It’s been a profoundly tiring week and I am yawning with all the grace of a grizzly bear as I write this. Also if you haven’t noticed I’ve been surreptitiously nudging my blog updates to the end of each week.
The weekend calls for some relaxing (read: a euphemism for being lazy), so I’m here with another post about a Tokyo cafe!
Which easily makes you fall in love on first sightThe only hitch is that it may well take you a long time before you actually see it. It took me forever to navigate the narrow streets of Kouenji, and when I finally did arrive I walked right past it because it was hiding in the row of shops.
Every single wall is painted with bright colours and fuzzy animals, kind of like being in a giant book of nursery rhymes. You have to be there to really feel it while being surrounded by all these dreamy artBut I think you can get a decent glimpse of what it’s like here!
All of their menus are handmadeThey have pretty standard cafe fare like baked rice and pizzas, but you all know what I’m here for…
DessertsThis is more or less a mountain of cream crowned with strawberry slices. It’s such a huge pile it practically smothers the crust below it. By the way, the name of this one is Ichigo-chan
More cakes covered with cream (a never-ending supply in the kitchen?) and given a smiley face to make you more emotionally invested into the dessert you’re about to eatThis one was chocolate cake on the inside, so when I took a scoop out came the most glorious chunk of that chocolatey stuff)
This is the cutest room decoration I’ve laid eyes on. Definitely would use this idea for the next time I get to redecorate my bedroom, if I were ever capable enough of painting acceptable-looking woodland creatures onto my wall.
Be sure to visit it when you go to Tokyo! I don’t think you should trust me with directions, so the best I can do is to leave the address
