It’s saturday and it’s time to enjoy weekend! So today because i got a bit too tired, i only go to Futakotamagawa alone. I really do love me-time and usually i just ended up in a cake shop, like today. At first I really wanted to go to TWG but i got too lazy to go to Jiyugaoka and suddenly I came across a TWG-looking shop with really mouth-watering large cakes in their display at the second floor of Dogwood Plaza just outside Futakotamagawa Station.
I would probably came across a new fancy cake shop or restaurant every week (it’s my stress coping mechanism) so I guess better than enjoying it alone, from now on i will write a review about each cake shop or restaurant that i’ve visited!
HARBS COFFEE AND CAKE
Location : 2F Dogwood Plaza, Futakotamagawa, just outside Futakotamagawa Station Denentoshi Line
Seatings : limited, around 15 tables
Price : 1500-2000 Yen for a set of cake and drink
From the outside, the cafe looked nice and also there were many people queueing to eat there. It was Saturday afternoon and the place itself was also small, i had to wait around 20 minutes to be seated.
So the price of each slice of cake is approximately 700 Yen-ish it all looked so yummy! From rare cheese cake, fresh fruit cake, chocolate cake, and so on. For the drinks (assorted kind of teas, herb teas, milk teas, coffees) where you will get one pot of drink is also around 700 Yen-ish. And please note that they don’t allow you to order only cake you have to also purchase one drink. So a set of cake and drink here for one person will cost approximately 1500 Yen-ish.
I also took some photos of the restaurant interior while waiting, as i have told you, it’s a bit like TWG.
Today, I tried Black and White Chocolate Cake and Hot Royal Milk Tea.
Royal Milk Tea? Really decent and the milk itself taste a bit sweet so i could omit adding granulated sugar to the tea. What else to say? The pot is really cute!
Black and White Chocolate Cake? What can i say! It’s really heavenly!
The size of cake is really big, it took me about 30 minutes to finish (please note that I’m such a sweet food lover). The cake is really fluffy, soft and creamy PLUS there are loads of carved white chocolate and dark chocolate on top of it. Really really delicious!
What else? The freshness! Yes the cake tasted really fresh and when i looked up at their website, they mentioned that they commit to make fresh cake each day, from 1981. So that’s the secret of this 33 years old cake shop! 🙂
So I rate this cafe as 5 stars!! You should try to visit it, it’s a bit expensive but it’s really delicious~ and i can’t wait for the spring to come, since they’re going to sell their Sakura Cake *drooling
Have a good weekend, everyone.
Loads of Love
