Japanese Food: Q-Pot Cafe Tokyo with Sakura Desserts

Q-Pot Cafe Tokyo near Harajuku is one of the cutest cafes to pop in a long time (http://www.q-pot.jp/shop/cafe/). Done by wildly popular sweets deco aka sweets jewelry maker Q-Pot it’s the perfect niche cafe. It’s usually packed on weekends with a wait so weekdays is the best time to visit.

These are just their regular desserts. Look how special and well done that their standards are. But you’re missing out on their seasonal (gentei) spectaculars, more on that below.  :sage:

Q-Pot Cafe’s outside is like a small little cottage. With all the flashiness of Harajuku and the gilded brand stores that line Omotesando it’s such a refreshing simple, homespun change.

The sweets wallpaper down to the biscuit shaped tables and wall motif. Everything is expertly chosen and uniquely crafted for this one-of-a-kind cafe. You definitely feel like you’re transported somewhere else than the backstreets of Omotesando.

Like any special place in Japan there are goods to buy like take home Q-Pot Cafe biscuits and plates.

The coffee sprinkled with their logo and each piece of silverware has their little Q-Pot teapot logo on it.

But of course what about my own choice? Their sakura-themed dessert.

Or should I say desserts? A sakura cake tower, a sakura and white chocolate with Q-Pot logo and then a sakura macaron with edible jewelry.

Check out that amazing macaron! It was heavenly, too. I couldn’t handle how I was eating jewelry, such a joy.

Such a tiny piece of chocolate but a delicate little print. If you didn’t notice, it matches their wallpaper.

Inside the sakura cake tower! The Japanese-themed dessert heaven of cake, matcha cream, red bean and sakura icing. It was soooo good!!

 

Unlike many places in Japan cameras are 100% okay and encouraged. The staff are happy to take pictures of you or let you roam around and take pictures. For 1,000 yen for a dessert and coffee and an unforgettable experience, it’s definitely a well-priced moment. It’s also such a wonderful moment to sit when you’ve been walking around Harajuku.

If you enjoy sweets and adorable settings please visit! Q-Pot Cafe Tokyo is located near the Omotesando and Harajuku train stations at 3-10-21 Kita-Aoyama, Minato-ku, Tokyo. I’m not done with posting about Q-Pot. 3 months ago I went to Q-Pot Cafe’s super secret room and enjoyed their special menu. I’ll share with that next month.  :cheery:

    We have a Q-Pot store where I live but I had no idea they actually had a cafe where they made desserts. My friend was really upset when he went into the Q-Pot store one day (after the recent opening) expecting food based on the displays he could see from the entrance and walking out extremely perplexed, a little annoyed that he was tricked and still hungry. I’ll have to let him know that they actually do make food lol.

      HAHAHA I definitely agree! I kind of don’t understand the point of sweets deco. Apparently since if you look at such “food” you can start to crave it so always looking at it on your ring or such…. bad idea. :)

    I’d love to go there *-* But I’m a lil upset about such high prices! Is there any cover charge? Can I just sit and order a simple latte :P ? Or you have to order something $$$ up to… ?

      There’s no cover charge, but you pay for what you get. I don’t know if it’s worth buying a latte for the decor especially when another drink isn’t that much more. Even some cakes are cheap.
