We went there just at the time they are open to avoid a long que that usually happened. The taste of the pancake is really good , they are quite filling. The pancake is definitely different with the standard version. The taste is so fluffy...More

This was the 3rd lot of soufflé pancakes I’ve tried in Tokyo. And my least favourite of the 3. They’re very rich (not necessarily a bad thing) and too eggy. I got there at 9am on a Tuesday for the 9.30 opening. There were a...More

Don’t believe the hype. I still prefer the traditional spongy pancake. This is like eating a meringue or cotton candy.

We stopped by this spot around 11 and there was what looked to be a reasonable line. We put our names down and waited. And waited. And waited some more. I’m not sure if people put their names down, left and came back because it...More

The pancakes here are a must try dessert, went here after visiting Meiji shrine and there was a 40 minute wait but it was worth it because the unique fluffiness of the pancakes cannot be found in my country

It is a bit pricey and I would say that the taste is not amazing amazing. Also these pancakes will not fill you up because they are like air. However, what stops me from getting mad about the price is that the restaurant is beautifully...More

Nice "fluffy" version of pancakes made with quality. Lots of different options, but if you want more of a meal (like with bacon or something) order before 2:30pm. After 2:30, all choices are more of a dessert.

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.
