A must visit for train lovers
Price: 800 yen
The cafe, which is also a train shop, features a number of different model railway towns and a plarail display. You can enjoy the displays as you eat your lunch or have a coffee and you can also book to run a train yourself in a separate display at the back of the restaurant.
On weekdays, the children’s plate comes on a bullet train plate, pictured above. The children's plate comes with a little paper train with sweets inside. Other food also has train motifs, for example the “Nori Tetsu Meat” dish served with a train made out of seaweed. That comes with a half cooked egg though, so if you are buying for a child you might want to request they fully cook the egg. They have a bullet train cake on the menu too. They provide bumper chairs, and crockery and cutlery for children. You help yourself to water. They don’t have toilets in the cafe itself, but you can use Lalaport’s toilets, 2 of which are close by.
The Steam Locomotive Cafe is open daily from 10 am to 9 pm, last order for food is 8 pm and for drinks it is 8.30 pm. The nearest parking is probably car park lot number 2 or 3. The latter is outdoors. All parking in Lalaport is free. By train it is a bit of a journey that requires a bus trip too and the buses aren't that frequent, so if at all possible I advise going by car.
