Relative to mot other cheap eateries this place is a tiny bit more expensive, however every dish or dessert I had was well worth it. Everything on the menu was unique and had very strong yummy tastes. We went with groups of 6 and everyone...More

Came in for breakfast for six persons. We ordered pancakes and egg benedict, and all the dishes came out perfect. Great place, and a perfect start to a day of sightseeing.

This is a must. It's near Nishi Market. We all loved it. It took about 35 minutes for our food to come out. Place has 3 floors so there is plenty of space to sit. Enjoy

Amazing pancakes!! Kids and adults both loved them :). Table favourite was the cheesecake but all of them were excellent. Light and fluffy with yummy toppings.

The staff was very rude, gave us attitude when we spoke English. Cream cheese fell off my pancake into my syrup before it was even put on my table.

My friend and I stumbled across this place while exploring the area. So glad we went inside. The pancakes were amazing and ended up being the best we had during our Japan trip. The pancakes we ordered were the Maple and whipped raisin nut butter...More

Went here for brunch. The space was bright but may feel cramped for some people. The service was decent and prompt. Don't let the fluffy pancakes fool you, they were substantial enough to keep me full until dinner time.
