“A taste of Paris in Tokyo!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This was one of our favorite dining experiences while in Tokyo! The souffles were amazing and the bread was warm and fresh baked. The weather was perfect so we were able to have a wonderful breakfast on the outside terrace. The staff was very friendly and spoke english perfectly, this is a wonderful part of town with great shopping which we took full advantage of after breakfast to work off some of the carbs! I would also have tried it for lunch if we had the time, everything looked great and the space was very charming, they had shoulder throws if the weather was cool and cute little burlap sachels for you to put your purse/brief case in so it did not have to sit on the ground-which is a great idea esecially in Tokyo were everyone is carrying so amazing high end designer bad or case and that way it does not get dirty or scuffed! But that is Tokyo attention to detail is the rule and order in everything is mandatory! My OCD loves being in this city!

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Perfect for early risers looking for a delicious Western style breakfast in Roppongi. We were flying out the morning we ate here so did not have time for the souffle to bake, as the menu states it takes about 25 minutes, although another diner near us had one and it smelled amazing. The basil omelet's green color threw me off initially but it was incredibly good. The coissants by themselves were just ok- could use some butter and jam. Sitting outside, sipping coffee and enjoying some quiet in the heart of Tokyo was a perfect way to end our trip. If I hadn't heard Japanese everywhere and known we were in Tokyo, I might have thought we were in Paris for a moment. The restaurant is dog friendly, which I loved as well. Lovely breakfast, and the staff was among the friendliest we encountered.

“Terrific pancakes”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great place for a western style breakfast. Love the pancakes! Right across the street from the Grand Hyatt. Reasonable prices for Tokyo. The steak and frittes dinner is pretty good but not so impressed with dinner in general.

“Ginger Gin & Tonics”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Come here for the best cocktail in Tokyo. Ginger Gin and Tonic! Out of this world. Food menu changes all the time. Some plates are good, others a bit small for the price. A good USDA American Hamburger with cheese and onions. The soufflés are good but small. Service is very friendly and hip.

“Terrific western/French in heart of Roppongi”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Great brunch spot. Must try the soufflés --- super fresh, piping hot, and great favors. Get a spot outside on warm sunny day, enjoy the food and the sights: Tokyo elites pulling up in their Ferraris, Lambos, and Bentleys.
