Hello dear readers! How are you today? Hope you are all well!
As you know, I love to go to cafes, but I’ve actually been to all of the ones on my list and I’m now searching for new ones. I googled for some nice cafes in Harajuku and came across Sunday Jam. As it was actually Sunday, it seemed the perfect place to go!
Sunday Jam serves sweet and savoury pancakes. It’s a bit risky trying to eat pancakes in Harajuku because there are often huge queues! However I arrived at 2pm and by 2:15 I had a table, not bad at all! I ordered the Honolulu nuts and maple pancakes with bacon and hot tea.
The glass mug had hibiscus flowers on it, I guess to add to the Hawaiian theme? Anyway it was cute, and the leaf tea was tasty.
I think I actually managed to capture the deliciousness of the pancakes in this picture for once. I was kind of disappointed with the puny amount of bacon, but still it was so, sooo good! I thought the macadamia nuts would be sprinkled on top, but they were actually inside the pancake batter! And I thought the lump in the middle was ice cream, but it was actually butter! Two very nice surprises.
I couldn’t finish everything even though I was very hungry when I arrived. Luckily someone else polished off what was left, but if you go please be aware that the portion is large!
After that I waddled outside to take an oufit shot:
Ribbon, skirt: Innocent World
Teddy tights: Swimmer
There were lots of bears on this outfit! The headbow is from the Night Bear series (although there aren’t any actual bears on it) and the skirt is Toy Parade and features teddies, dollies, toy soldiers and pull-along ducks. Although it’s a nursery theme, it’s presented in such a subtle way that it still looks mature. I really love this skirt! Here’s a closeup of the flocky print- it’s so adorable!
I put my hair into a snood, or hairnet. These were very popular in the 1940s and I like to mix retro styling into lolita. It was also quite practical as it was a windy day and the net kept my hair nice and neat!
Of course I could not resisit going to Closet Child! As usual many things caught my eye but I particularly fell in love with a regimental stripe setup from Metamorphose…. I really loved that series when it came out but I sort of forgot about it until now! The price was not at all bad and I worked very hard all last week so I decided to treat myself 🙂 Happy happy!
Since it’s blue I can match it with many things in my wardrobe, and it’s just the season for wearing regimental stripes. I love British motifs like these! It will be a lot of fun combining the two pieces in different ways. I am going to look out for the jacket too so I can make a suit!
Thank you for reading this post. I hope it has not made you too hungry for pancakes (or regimental stripes). By the way, do you know of any good cafes in Tokyo or Kanagawa that I should visit?
See you again soon,
