When I was looking for a cake called Foret Noir from France, I learned that it is the same as Kirschtorte from Germany, and that this shop offers it under the name Black Forest, so I decided to give it a try. The location is a corner of the 4th floor of Shinjuku Takashimaya. There is a store hidden in the women's clothing department. When I visited on the evening of a public holiday, it was full and there were 3 groups waiting. I was told that there was a 90-minute wait, so depending on the situation, I would have to wait quite a while, but my turn came around in about 15 minutes. The interior of the store has an elegant atmosphere with pale pink wallpaper and luxurious furniture. You can order cakes individually, but to match the formality of the restaurant, you order them as a set. Black Forest iced coffee set 1,760 yen. It's a bit pricey, but considering the atmosphere of the place, it's probably worth it. The Black Forest was a delicious combination of cream and sponge, and the grapes inside were a nice accent. It has an elaborate and elegant taste. The red thing in front of the cake was cherry ice cream, and the strong sourness complemented the sweetness of the cake. I think it's a well thought out structure. It's not cheap enough that you can go back to it many times, but it's a good place to spend time with your loved ones.

This is my first visit to Salon de th Muse IMADA MINAKO Shinjuku Takashimaya store in Shinjuku. As it's part of Takashimaya, it's built like a luxury salon, and it's a tea salon that serves as a place for madams to socialize.

I chose Diane's cheesecake because it had a gorgeous atmosphere among the many simple sweets. The cake set comes with coffee or tea.

This time I tried making hot tea. The berry sauce and fruits are served on a pure white plate, and the color is beautiful.

The cake is a baked cheesecake, but it is served chilled, so it almost feels like a rare cheesecake. A cake made in the image of the beautiful Diane de Poitier has a beautiful yet ephemeral feel to it.


I received the king's snack.
For the main cake, choose from black forest (cherry cake) and cheesecake, but I chose cheesecake.
The scones are small, but they are warm, crispy, and perfect with the clotted cream.
Each baked sweet is delicious.
The cheesecake also had my favorite sour cream.
The shop has a solemn atmosphere that makes you forget you are in a department store.
