As a big fan of Beatrix Potter and her creation, Peter Rabbit, going to its cafe is a must, so I did that on my second day in Tokyo with my friend Mazni and her daughter, Nadya.
This cafe is situated at Jiyugaoka area, a stylish and chic neighbourhood at the southern part of Meguro-ku.
Arriving at this cafe, first thing that I noticed was the beautiful alfresco garden setting. I ran up the stairs and opened the cafe’s door excitedly, just like a little kid entering a wonderland. It was truly a fantastic feeling.
Tell me how would you feel seeing a cafe like this? Amazing, right?
Once inside, we helped ourselves to a table. The setting is very English, of course, to honour Beatrix Potter, the well-known English writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist best known for her children’s books featuring animals, such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
On the table there were two copies of Peter Rabbit books (in Japanese), a jar of wrapped cube sugars, a pitcher of plain water, drink glasses, as well as little bell to ring. There was also Petter Rabbit waiting for us.
Peter Rabbit and Dina.
We invited Flopsy Bunny from next table to join us.
We ordered two coffee (with Peter Rabbit art), hot chocolate, and Doubleberry French Toast Casserole. Everything was nicely presented and we went oohs and aahs eating the yummy casserole. The coffee and chocolate was good too.
We spent more than two hours at the cafe just enjoying the surrounding while making photos and videos. Here’s a video made by Nadya, featuring Mazny as the intro:
