You will love the fluffy texture! Five recommended “pancake & hotcake” restaurants in Tokyo.

30.October.2017 | FOOD / SPOT

Steaming pancakes, melted butter and lots of maple syrup… In this article, I will introduce to you some restaurants where you can eat delicious pancakes/hotcakes which both children and adults love.



Omotesando “Café Casa”


Omotesando “Café Casa” is an old, classic café run by father and child. The display and the illustrations on their menu have a warm atmosphere and the stained-glass window was made by the owner of the shop. The restaurant is surrounded by greenery and the décor inside is very colorful.


Approximately 20 years ago after hearing requests from customers, hotcakes joined menu (¥750 with tax). The contrast between the crispy surface of the pancake and the fluffiness that lies within is heavenly. The hotcakes are covered in maple syrup for a truly exquisite blend of flavors.

Harajuku “gram”


“gram” is a stylish café that you can find by walking from Harajuku Station down Takeshita Street for about 5-minutes. The green sign is the landmark. The pancakes they make are made with the best ingredients and made one-by-one after an order. The most popular soft pancake on the menu “Premium Pancake” (950 yen) is highly recommended. The pancake is very soft. The waiter was wobbling as they brought it over to the table, and pancake itself too was wobbling. It looked as if it was going to collapse by just being placed on the tabletop. I am pretty sure that you have never eaten such a fluffy pancake.
