If I had to choose a favorite contemporary café in Tokyo this would be it. Set inside a flower shop, the place is absolutely whimsical with colorful fragrant blooms filling the entire space. Their charming flower arrangements never fail to take my breath away.
If you are stationed at Misawa Air Base or plan on visiting, there’s a neat restaurant in the area that serves up authentic French cuisine that will make your mouth water and leave your stomach full. Using the freshest seasonal ingredients, North 40-40 serves up tasty meals no matter what the season.
Our love for French food and exploration of Tokyo’s Michelin-starred restaurants brought us to Les Chanterelle for lunch (generally, a much more affordable way to tap your toes into the fine dining scene in Tokyo).
On a visit to Toyohashi one day, I set out looking for somewhere to have lunch, but I didn't get far from the station before the options thinned out considerably. Then on a main road I found Aux Crieurs de Vin, which sounded like more fancy a place than I usually go to, and had little information outside to help me gauge the cost.
It’s no secret that Japanese adore anything and everything associated with France. This translates to numerous French imports including cafes and restaurants. Breizh Café Creperie is definitely among them, with lovely atmosphere reminiscent of a small local French café which you’d find on a corner of a random street in Paris.
