Stylish café, Warm ambiance, Delicious food and 3D Latte art
Price: 1000 yen
Everything about my experience at Café Chocotea today was positive and gratifying. From the minute I walked in, I got a really good vibe about the place. The decor is bright cozy rustic, the space is colourful and comfortable, the menu is very well thought out and appetising, the selection of coffee and drinks is impressive, the 3D latte art is worth every yenny. The barista speaks perfect English.
We got the table near the door which sits four, in 2 very comfortable leather 2 seater sofas. There are 2 two-seater tables beside that. All 3 of these seats have low tables and sitting room type chairs or sofas. Up a step there is a large table which sits about six. They have a high chair for a baby / toddler in this section. The place is small, but very relaxed and quiet. It is a good place to relax over a coffee and a book. They have a selection of books and magazines for patrons to borrow. They have children's books too. There are 3 menus, which take a little time to read, but the server will explain anything you are not sure about. You can order individual dishes of food or opt for a lunch set or just have a coffee or one of their famous 3D lattes if you prefer. The lunch sets are a panini or an open sandwich with a choice of add-on sides. The scones are as good as at home in Ireland. The food is really good quality and healthy. The 3D art takes about 20 minutes to make, but you get a service drink while you are waiting. They have a good choice of drinks. The soft drinks are served in larger glasses much like a fish bowl!
The café is not wheelchair friendly and the toilet is outside and up a steep stairs, with no changing mat, but other than that there is nothing else you can fault about this local gem.The nearest station is Tobu Tojo Line's Sakado station. There is free parking out the back of the café, down a narrow alley.
