Simple and wholesome, the food was great, and the service was fantastic. We would definitely go there again next time we are in Shibuya

Yet another pancake shop I visited which turned out to be a good place to visit but definitely not as outstanding as 'A Happy Pancake'. The pancakes are great but the service is somewhat lacking and if you don’t arrive early you will struggle for...More

Personally I am not that into pancakes, however since my mom insisted, we went to "rainbow pancakes" for desert. The place is pretty hard to find, because it is located in a small deep alley. On the way you can see a lot of small...More

Loved eating at this place, got two kinds of pancakes (don't even remember the names, probably doesn't even matter because all of them are probably incredible). My only regret is that my two friends and I got full and couldn't order more...

My daughter found this gem after researching top Tokyo spots and it did not disappoint. Japanese "jiggly" pancakes (though we did not find them jiggly) are apparently now trending in Japan. We arrived 10 minutes after opening on a holiday and there was already a...More

Happy with the freshly made pancakes. Only made from scratch after you placed the orders. Super fluffy and delicious.

The most fluffy pancakes ever with delicious toppings. I had the fruit and meringue topped pancakes but it was hard to choose as they all looked so good! Really worth a stop in their colourful quirky place.

Pancakes are one of the best I had. My two friends and I shared the macadamia one, and the chocolate orange one. Drinks are so-so. Very accommodating staff. Small space, it's a good thing we went there early. When we finished, there's already a long...More

I ordered the macadamia nuts with Milky cream sauce and my husband ordered the caramel apple pancake. The macadamia nuts with white sauce was so good. I was worried the sauce would be too sweet or it would be too saucy on the pancakes but...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
