cocofulu cafe
sandwich of the day

A healthy sandwich for veggie lovers

We recommend the hearty sandwiches served at the cafe adjacent to the Kyu-Furukawa Gardens. Items like carottes rapes, purple cabbage, salad greens, and more are sandwiched heartily between brown bread for an appetizing cross-section of veggies. Other sandwiches include roast beef or chicken. There is also the vegetable sandwich for a healthy option. Tables on the second floor look down at a garden, a lovely touch.

〈Cadot French sweets〉

A veteran French sweets shop frequented by celebrities

This French pastry shop has been around for close to sixty years in the Shimofuri Ginza Shopping Arcade. It was the first shop in Japan to sell clam-shaped madeleines and has been visited by celebrities like Yasunari Kawabata and Yukio Mishima. A recommended take-out item would be the cochonnet, inspired by a baby pig. This sweet cake features butter cream sandwiched between two madeleines. Its cute appearance makes it great as both a souvenir or as the day’s dessert.
