We had not had breakfast so by the time we got to Shibuya at 10.30am we were hungry and looking for a cafe for breakfast. It was a little weird going through the makeup shop to get to the cafe but its worth it as this one has a great view of the Shibuya crossing.
They did a ham and cheese toastie which they called a croquette so I ordered that, it came with a salad and vege ratatouille (so nice to get a salad and vegies. You simply don't get them with Jpanese food) . My daughter ordered some sandwiches (3 small ones) one had salmon and cream cheese,the other had crab salad and the third one was prosciutto with tomato and lettuce. There was also a salad on the side.
It was the best ever toastie I had.
My husband ordered a coffee which came in a soup bowl. It was hilarious we thought they had stuffed up the order and given him soup. It was the largest coffee I have ever seen.
Its not cheap but the food was nice.

Really excited to go here since we just know the brand for its cosmetic products. Clean and elegant. Price is just the usual price in japan..which is a bit pricey. We ordered coffee and 2 types of cakes which i forgot the names.

Very pleasant corner restaurant overlooking the famous crossing.
Excellent salads and sandwiches with a French touch. Recommended for a break from the Shibuya hassle

As expected this cafe was pricey but the food is not too bad. Most tourists come here to get an excellent view of the famous Shibuya Crossing. There are lots of local ladies here too.

On this occasion we both ordered a white wine cooler and mixed bruschetta to share. Both weren't bad but was pricey and there wasn't much alcohol in the drink.

However its one of those places you have to try and not necessarily go back to a second time. I wouldn't come here for lunch or dinner.

Stopped here to eat after spotting it from THE INTERSECTION. Went into the L'Occitane store and up the stairs. Not a long wait at all for a table. Our first encounter with the Japanese custom on sitting in chairs to wait for a table and sliding down in unison when people get seated. Very efficient. Good food and an incredible view of the Shibuya area below!!
