Mariage Frères Shinjuku

Hello dear readers! How are you?

The other weekend I had tea at Mariage Frères in Shinjuku.

When I posted this picture on Facebook and Instagram some people were fooled into thinking I was in Paris! Actually I haven’t been abroad for almost a year and a half, so I’m itching to travel again soon.

I had a scone and a financier, accompanied by my favourite Earl Grey French Blue tea. I really liked the cinnamon-y jam that came with the scone! It was actually flavoured with the same tea that my friend had, I can’t remember the name though….

Thanks for reading and see you again soon!



Cheburashka Cafe

Hello dear readers! Have you heard of Cheburashka, the monkey-like character from Russia? I didn’t know of him until I came to Japan, but perhaps he’s popular in your country?

I visited the Cheburashka Cafe in Kichijoji with friends as part of an early birthday celebration.   

I ordered curry and salad which came with a little Cheburashka biscuit. It was pretty good!

Here’s a full shot of the outfit I wore that day:

Thanks to my friends for a lovely day, and thank you for reading!



Noe Café

Hello dear readers! How are you?


Today I’ll tell you about a truly charming cafe in Tokyo! I wish I could visit more often but it’s a little tricky to reach from my place.  


It’s called Noe Cafe and it is filled with miniature treasures! It’s really cute both inside and out and the food is delicious too.



I was seated at the glass-topped table which doubled as a showcase. Here are just a few of the things inside!



I was very taken with these wooden (or wood effect?) Disney figurines. I think they’re kind of sophisticated kawaii. Aren’t they??? I hope someone agrees haha.



This is the inside of a tiny English cottage. I love the table cloth and the tea cosy! And guess what, the tea I ordered came wearing a matching cosy!


There were so many lovely things to see in this unique cafe, I really recommend a visit! I would also like to thank the cafe staff for being so kind and for watching Tenno no Ryoriban. I hope to see you again soon!


Thanks for reading! See you next time,
