50s style rock and roll diner with collectible toys and latte art
Price: 700 yen
The inflated spider man outside this diner caught my eye and I had to go in and check it out. I was glad we did. The small but cozy cafe, has a retro feel to it with a 1950s feel through the style and design. The rock and roll music adds to the ambience. I quite enjoyed listening to half the Grease film album and classics such as Footloose, Johnny Be Good, Shake Rattle and Roll to name, but a few.
The menu is mixed. The billboard outside says that it is a taco rice cafe. They offer a lunch menu, a cafe menu and a night time menu. They have a good selection of beer, including locally brewed Coedo Beer and some foreign beer such as Heineken. We went for a Ice-cream sundae to share, and boy am I glad we were sharing; it was huge. Myself and 2.5 kids (the 1 year old didn't eat much) struggle to finish the delicous Berry Sundae we ordered. I also ordered a latte art. They have a selection of latte flavours and I think you can also get art on other coffee based beverages. I was very touched, by the picture the Barista drew for me. He drew my 3 girls on the coffee around the words "Welcome" with today's date. A small, but very touching gesture. They do plate art for birthdays. Within the shop there are lots of collectible toys. There are signs asking you not to touch them, which concerned me with my 1 year old, but she restrained herself although I know she was itching to touch them!
The cafe is open from 11 am to 5 pm Tuesday to Sunday, closed on Mondays. Lunch is available between 11 am and 3 pm and dinner is served between 6 pm and 11 pm. The toilet is a Japanese style hole in the ground, the flushable type, not a septic tank thankfully. This diner is at the Hon-Kawagoe station side of Kurea Mall, about 10 minutes from Kawagoe station and 2 minutes from Hon-Kawagoe. No parking available.
