This time around, I ordered 2 types of pancakes off of the limited menu exclusive to this location.

Custard and Tropical Fruit Pancakes (3 cakes) 1480 yen (tax excl.)
Custard and Tropical Fruit Pancakes (3 cakes) 1480 yen (tax excl.)

This is part of the summer-exclusive menu!
These thick and fluffy pancakes are topped with fresh cream and shredded coconut.
This tropical dish is topped with 2 pineapple slices and a passionfruit sauce.
(2 pancakes can be ordered for 1380 yen)

The pancakes are extremely fluffy! They’re just the right level of sweet and full of flavor, so even just the cakes themselves are incredibly delicious!
You can enjoy yet another set of flavors when you pour on the caramel sauce.

What’s more, when you cut away to the center of the pancakes, the custard on top flows down! The acidity of the passionfruit accents the other flavors, and it makes you want to keep eating bite after bite. I wholeheartedly recommend these pancakes to those who love tropical fruit!

Custard and Mixed Berry Pancakes (3 cakes) 1480 yen (tax excl.)
Custard and Mixed Berry Pancakes (3 cakes) 1480 yen (tax excl.)

These pancakes are thick and fluffy too!
The beautiful pancakes come with a mixed berry sauce, which contains real fruit, along with fresh cream and strawberries.
(2 pancakes can be ordered for 1380 yen)

The sourness of the berries is a perfect match for the sweetness of the pancakes! It’s a simple deliciousness that anyone can enjoy. Custard flows from these pancakes too, adding another layer of gentle sweetness and richness. It’d be so hard to choose between these two options!

Premium Egg Sandwich (720 yen)
Premium Egg Sandwich (720 yen)

This is a simple egg sandwich, consisting of rolled egg between slices of bread.

The fluffy and fragrant bread pairs perfectly with the rolled egg!
Along with the umami of their house mayo sauce, this sandwich is worthy of a leading role!

Most of the menu can be upgraded to a drink set for 200-250 yen as well, which is a great deal!
