This Week’s Breakfast: French Toast at Bread, Espresso & in Omotesando

17.September.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

One thing I do at least once a week without fail is treat myself out to some delicious food or dessert. It’s very important time well spent in order to live a happy life.

 

Today, I went out for breakfast. I got up a little earlier than usual and headed to my favourite cafe, Bread, Espresso & which is located in Omotesando.

It’s really easy to get to: it’s just a 5-minute walk from the A2 exit of Omotesando Station. Mornings are quiet in Omotesando, you don’t see many people walking around, so it feels like a completely different place compared to its busy streets during the day.

 

When you enter the cafe, the smell of freshly-baked bread is the first thing to hit your senses. I sat down on one of the comfy sofa-seats and ordered myself the French toast breakfast set.

There’s plenty of space between tables, so it’s an environment that’s easy to kick back and relax in.

Inside and outside the cafe are cute signs with that day’s recommended menu items written on them. Next time I visit I think I’ll try one of the lunchtime desserts. That’s what I daydreamed about while waiting for my French toast to arrive.

French Toast Set w/Drink – ¥800

The French toast has a subtly sweet scent. It’s made with one of the cafe’s popular foods: the butter-loaded bread known as “Muu.”

 

The toast’s crusts were nice and crunchy while the middle part was fluffy. The soft bread just melts in your mouth when taking a bite, and your taste buds are treated to the sweet flavour of the egg.

The toast is delicious as it is, and you can totally leave it at that and enjoy your morning breakfast. But if you want to take it to the next level then you can drizzle the accompanying honey over the toast, giving the sweetness an even richer flavour.

I’m usually not good with the characteristic sweet taste that honey has, or the bitterness layered into the overall flavour, but this honey was on the milder side so I really enjoyed it.

After my food, I enjoyed the cappuccino the barista beautifully made for me which comes as part of the set.

 

My 1-hour morning was spent even more relaxed than usual here. It’s much different from lunchtime which is a much busier and hurried time, so I could sink in my chair and really enjoy my drink too.

 

Waking up early and enjoying a relaxing breakfast. That’s all I did, but it helped ease my busy mind and soul. I’m a simple person, and I think I’ll be able to face my week and work hard at it after this.

 

 

Today’s Presents

Futsu Furu Fig Sandwich – ¥420

Futsu Uni Fruits – ¥400

I wanted to share the happiness between friends and family on this fine day where I got to eat a delicious breakfast. These sandwiches are packed full of fruits―seasonal fruits which are best enjoyed right now. If you’re wondering what other sandwiches they sell then be sure to visit.

  • Tokyo Stroll: Indulge at Harajuku’s Conveyor Belt Dessert Cafe ‘MAISON ABLE Cafe Ron Ron’

    29.November.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

    MAISON ABLE Cafe Ron Ron is a new hot spot in Harajuku that has been popping up all over Japanese social media. It’s so popular that it’s common to see lines of people waiting outside to get in, and that’s due to the fact that this is the world’s first-ever all-you-can-eat conveyor belt dessert cafe!

     

    MMN decided to visit the cafe to see what all the fuss was about. Unfortunately, it was raining on the day, but that didn’t stop the smiles on girls’ faces waiting outside for it to open which gleamed like a clear summer’s day.

     

    We visited the cafe with Japanese model Rinko Murata who has a weakness for sweet things and whose anticipation for this place was growing.

    Upon entering the cafe you must first buy a ticket from the ticket machine. It costs ¥1,800 (tax included) for all-you-can-eat desserts and a drink.

    This is the drink shelf. You can choose your favourite from a selection of colourful beverages that come in original bottles.

    Rinko-chan picked out a photogenic-looking drink too!

    If you stand against the pastel pink walls you can snap a cute photo from any angle!

     

    Rinko-chan was quick in wanting to snap one. There are messages written over the walls too. It makes you want to take your dessert in hand and take lots of pictures.

    The dessert lane stretches a sweet 38 meters. There are over 25 delights to choose from which appetisingly pass by one by one. They arrive crowning pastel coloured plates looking like precious gems and jewels. There’s even light savoury food in addition to the sweet stuff.

     

    You’re allowed 40 minutes. Heaven begins as you sit down: pick, take a photo, tuck in and repeat.

    Is this one an ice cream? It actually isn’t – underneath the cone hides potato salad! This is one of the non-dessert light foods and is perfect for cleansing your palate. There’s a meat ball burger, nikuman meat bun, popcorn and others too. (And keep in mind that items change depending on the season!)

    All the sweets are bite-sized meaning you can enjoy lots of different kinds one after the other.

    “Eating something this cute feels such a waste!” commented Rinko-chan.

     

    Piling up the plates after you’ve finished is kinda fun too!

    The shortcake dessert with the black cat wafer is the most popular. Only 10 of them come by in an hour. Rinko-chan was lucky enough to get her hands on one.

    The cat has an iconic presence in the cafe. In fact, the “Ron Ron” in the cafe’s name comes from French and refers to the purring sound a cat makes when it’s happy.

    There’s a super cute girly powder room up on the second floor.

    They have hair straighteners, makeup and other bits and bobs that customers are free to use. Use of the powder room isn’t included within the time restriction of the all-you-can-eat service, so once you’ve filled your belly with treats you can hit it up, touch up your makeup and head out shopping.

    If you’re in Harajuku why not enjoy lots of desserts and a girly time over at MAISON ABLE Cafe Ron Ron?

     

    MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON Social Media Campaign

    Running: November 29, 2018 – December 4, 2018

  • 6 Must-Visit Little-Known Good Cafés in Omotesando

    15.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Omotesando―The hub for the latest trends and fashion in Japan, home to iconic landmark stores and sites aimed at the country’s youth to cafés and restaurants that make you feel like a celebrity. Weekends are an especially busy time in the high-end avenue of Omotesando where shops and streets bustle with lines of locals and tourists out on shopping sprees.

     

    Today we are joined by Japanese Instagrammer omao who’s in-the-know when it comes to cafes, something you can tell with just one glimpse of their page. For those of you who are left wondering where to stop off for a coffee break or some lunch during your visit to the Omotesando and Harajuku area, omao is here to show you some stylish and little-known good spots.

     

    Bread, Espresso &

    At Bread, Espresso &, you can enjoy some seriously bread and coffee. This café and bakery offers both dine-in and takeout services. It’s tucked away from the main street just a 5-minute walk from Omotesando Station’s A2 exit.

     

    On my visit this time, I ordered several different bread options. Everything looked so delicious that I felt spoiled for choice!

     

    Red bean butter. There’s no way on earth that could ever be unappetising. The pastry is super soft. Each individual order is packaged in its own bag which left a good impression with me in the hygiene department.

    CHAVATY

    CHAVATY is a café specialising in milk tea. This one is also within just 5-minutes walking distance from the A2 exit of Omotesando Sation.

     

    When I took this photo I ordered the tea latte and scone set. When you order an iced tea latte it comes in a cute bottle, but it was hot on this day so I got it hot. What surprised me from the get go was hot big the drink is! It’s hugely satisfying, you really get your fill.

     

    The houjicha latte I tried once was tasty too, but I was interested in the uva milk tea this time around. The scones were scrumptious as well! I particularly liked the honey-like fruit that comes with them.

     

    CHAVATY

    montoak

    montoak is a suspicious-looking building just an 8-minute stroll from Harajuku Station. It’s my favourite spot; I’ve been here so many times.

     

    The menu is delicious and there are lots of seats. My weakness is the Gorgonzola cheesecake.

    LATTEST

    Another 5-minute stroller from Omotesando Station’s A2 exit is LATTEST which I place in my top three favourite cafés in Omotesando. It can be a little hard to find, but it’s a lot bigger than I thought.

     

    I experienced their seasonal rose mocha. Simply amazing! Milk foam is just what I like. It’s smooth and moist, and there’s not a lot of it so it’s not heavy. I like the coffee beans they use too. Cafés that have tasty mochas are just the best, right?

     

    ▼LATTEST

    Address: LATTEST 1F, 3-5-2 Jingumae, Shibuya, Tokyo

    Business Hours: 10:00-19:00

    The Local Coffee Stand

    The Local Coffee Stand is sandwiched in the middle of Shibuya and Omotesando and about an 8-minute walk from Omotesando Station.

     

    Their lattes are so, so good! First up, the foam is plump, and the sweetness of the milk really stands out. And the espresso, although it’s full-bodied, isn’t bitter and mixes deliciously with the milk. The coffee beans and food are both high-quality like that of a select shop, so I wanted to try eating and drinking everything they had.

     

    I recommend the macadamia cookies. They have an eggy fragrance and are just mouth-watering.

     

    I pretty much liked everything about this place.

    Franze & EVANS London

    This is a popular Italian cafe-deli based in London. It’s located away from the busy main street and can be reached in just 3-minutes from exit A3 of Omotesando Station.

     

    During those awkward times when you want to eat a salad but want to eat cake too then this is the place you need to go. Their carrot cake is truly amazing, as is their salad. All the cakes they sell just seem to sparkle before you that it’s nearly impossible to pick just one. The lemon cake caught my attention too…

     

    It doesn’t need to be said how great everything tastes, but the portions need to be mentioned as they are nice and hearty, and I love this place because of it.

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Collaborates with 153-year-old Kimuraya Bakery for LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project

    09.May.2022 | FOOD / MUSIC / SPOT

    Last month, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu performed on the Gobi Stage at Coachella, one of the largest music festivals in the United States. Her Weekend 1 performance was streamed live worldwide and trended on Twitter in both the U.S. and Japan. After an accident during the second weekend left the singer alone on stage, many wondered if she could pull of a dazzling performance. Kyary’s joy and excitement completely transfixed the massive crowd, and the artist has drawn praise from around the world for her talent and passion.

     

    Kyary has returned to Japan to continue her ‘Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 10th ANNIVERSARY JAPAN TOUR 2022 CANDY WAVE,’ seeing the singer performing 30 shows across Japan. On May 7, she’ll perform at LINE CUBE SHIBUYA in Tokyo.

     

    In conjunction with the nationwide tour, the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project was launched to energize Japan through the appeal of regional towns and cities and has been attracting major attention. To celebrate the Tokyo leg of the tour, a new Tokyo collab has been announced!

     

    Kyary is teaming up with Kimuraya Sohonten, a bakery that has been in business for over 150 years. The brand is known for inventing the anpan sweet bun in 1874. Given how much this simple food has influenced Japanese culture, it seems appropriate to team up with Kyary–the singer has brought Japanese influence around the world and continues to inspire fans with her creativity and sweetness. 

    For the collaboration, fans will be able to purchase the aptly-named ‘Ninjari Anpan,’ based on Kyary’s hit song Ninjari Bang Bang released in 2013.

Concertgoers can purchase these sweets at the show on May 7, and they will also be available at select Kimuraya stores and online.
