APRIL 2023

On the day of the visit, the store was already serving customers prior to the 11am opening time and there were a few customers ahead. Wait time was quite long as the store was small, about 30 mins wait. Menu was provided while you are waiting so ordering went smoothly when I got a seat. All the desserts comes in a set with your choice of tea. I had the classic Mont Blanc which was very smooth and the natural sweetness of the chestnut flavor comes through nicely. The seasonal strawberry Mont Blanc parfait was also a treat with the mix of sweet strawberry jam sauce and ice cream. A little pricey but it was worth it considering how good the chestnut flavor was and the wait time was not too long.


Finally I got to visit this famous cafe. This provide chestnuts sweets all year around. The main sweet is fancy Mont Blanc. At the same time, they serve seasonal menu, for example, the combination of Mont Blanc and shaved ice in summer season. Especially, in autumn season, the Mont Blanc made of the highest grade chestnut is very popular. So you need to reserve it in very advance. I could get seats because we visited there before noon of weekday. You need to be prepared to wait in line. There were only tables for around four groups.


A very popular chestnut dessert shop. Visited on a weekday at noon and queued for around 40 mins to get in.

I really like the cream, matching mont blanc very well.

The service is good and they have English menus.
