Definitely the most AMAZING French toast we've ever eaten. We were lucky to get straight in as there was a line all the way up the stairs to the street when we left. But would totally have been worth the wait! Also had a Persian Tea which was nice and refreshing.

Cafe Aaliya is famous for its French toasts and it definitely lives up to the hype.

We were here on a rainy Saturday afternoon around 4 and waited for 20 minutes to be seated. We ordered the French toast with cinnamon fruit, French toast with caramel sauce, cinnamon tea and coffee. The French toasts were mindblowing. They were so soft and absolutely delicious. We liked the one with caramel sauce better than the one with cinnamon fruit though. The coffee was good but nothing special. The cinnamon tea was not what we expected. It came with whipped cream on top and tasted soso. We would not order it again the next time.

The cafe is located in a basement but it is not difficult to find. It is not far from Isetan. The staff was friendly. An English menu was available.

French toast is still really really good and fluffy just the way I remember it. I highly recommend this as a good relaxed breakfast to start your day!

Something about Japanese French Toast. They make it really well, I would say even better than the States. The States usually have it as a breakfast item but here it is more like a dessert/ snack to have with coffee/tea. The French Toast here will not disappoint you. The place usually opens after 10AM.

A bit on the expensive side for coffee and French toast, but nonetheless, the food was absolutely delicious and the staff were helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.
