I am not a japanese parfait kinda guy, but this place converted me with their upscale creations. Premium ingredients with artistic presentation. Everything we had was delicious and worth the splurge. Trendy seating arrangement and a nice kitchen window to watch them work.


Everything is good
The only sad thing is I'm not living in Japan so I can't visit there often...


Matcha Parfait was delicious. Worth a try if you are in the area
