chocoholic cafe

Today's super I'm-so-late entry will be about Chocoholic Cafe! A lovely little sweets cafe that I visited for the first time with Ri in the middle of a torrential downpour last weekend. I'd already been a bit sick and now I have full-blown bronchitis --which is awesome--but it was really fun nonetheless.

Such a dreary day ;___;

Going down into the station from Roppongi Hills

I had to go to Roppongi Hills that morning for a press conference for LUNA SEA that I completely wasn't prepared for but managed to turn out pretty well. It was really interesting to be witness to a part of the music scene in Japan that I'd come into contact years and years before. It was an opportunity I never though I would get so I hope I can continue to do a good job in the future. Here's my article for those curious!

After that I met up with Ri at Ebisu Station and we began the walk to Chocoholic Cafe in the torrential downpour. It's kind of situated between Ebisu & Daikanyama Stations so it's a little bit of a walk but I really loved the route we took.

And then finally we arrived! 

This is their store--filled with so many cute things you will cry--that's situated on top of the cafe. The cafe is down the stairs to the right and, because it was raining so hard were actually somewhat terrifying to go down.

Ri's face cake!

This place was actually one of the cutest places I've been in a while.

It's really tiny and the atmosphere was so relaxed. The perfect place to spend an icky, rainy day. The price is a bit high--normal for Japan--but if you want the full experience of real food + the dessert expect to spend about 1500-2000 yen.

But I mean really. Are you going to pass up bear cakes with faces on them? Really.

For more info you can check out their OHP here. They're only open until 7:30pm and they're closed every Monday though so it's definitely not somewhere you can loiter all night like Starbucks or something (and there's no Wi-Fi which we were hoping) but the atmosphere is wonderful and perfect for a rainy day.
