Delicious and a great change from some of the dubious pastries that are in cafes in Tokyo. Well worth the trip. Nice cappuccino too, with a touch of cinnamon.

This may be the best French Toast I've ever had in my life. It's near Shinjuku Station, so it's a great spot to grab brekky before heading out for the day. Be prepared to wait, though every minute is worth it.

We were looking for great breakfast locations and found this cafe through TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The food is great, the service is great and the pricing is fair. About to visit for the third time in a week and I can't wait.

If you love French toast, you need to go to Cafe Aaliya. I’m not sure how they do it but it is the softest and best French toast I’ve had. Highly recommend

We had the toast with pears and the classic toast set, with one more Guatemalan coffee. The pear toast was absolutely gorgeous, well panned, soft and creamy inside, they serve it with a cream, delicious pears, whipped cream and you can sprinkle cinnamon on them....More
