You don’t find places like this a lot in bustling, modern Tokyo. High ceilings, dark wood, intricate details and a wonderful waste of highly valued space. Walking into this cafe nestled in a corner of the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum is highly refreshing.

You instantly walk back in time and feel like you are in an old cafe in Europe, probably in the year 1849.

There is a simple lunch menu but it is probably best to visit at tea time for a cup of coffee and dessert.

A cup of latte costs about 600 yen and we tried two desserts, the apple crumble and the crepes. The apple crumble was delicious with the perfect amount of sweetness embedded in its savory dough. The crepes were so-so, probably because I was too busy taking pictures and it was cold by the time I tasted it.

Loved this little cafe and will definitely be back for some more coffee and apple crumble.
