A true gem in Ikebukuro. Lovely decor and atmosphere. Ordered the salad set for lunch. It came with tea or coffee, a choice of croissant or giant slab of baked bread, soup, and the beautiful wreath salad. The salad was sizable and filling! Also the dressing that came with it on the side was tangy and nutty, with a small hint of sweetness. I wish I could take the dressing home with me! It was so good!! I was very satisfied with the meal and really enjoyed visiting such a cool spot in Ikebukuro.

This feels like a great place to go for a date or a fancy girls lunch or dinner. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a nice restaurant in Ikebukuro that has great food and attention to detail.


Had the wreath salad which was really delicious and beautiful to look at. The ingredients were fresh and distinct but worked well together. They also provided something I almost never see in Japan: they set the jar of dressing at the table for us, so we could use as much of it for flavoring as we wanted. I love the ability to adjust the amount on my own! The prices are on the high side so it has a slightly bougee atmosphere.


Such a pretty place with healthy options. The bread that comes with lunch menu is freshly baked and really really good.
Highly recommend!
