Today, I want to introduce one of my favorite cafes of all time here in Tokyo. To be honest, even though I say that, I’ve only been there once. But that first time was more than enough for me to fall in love with it. It’s the Aoyama Flower Market Teahouse, and they have 3 shops (Akasaka, Kichijouji, Aoyama), and I went to the Akasaka branch!
Aoyama Flower Market is an actual flower shop with the most beautiful flowers, and they happen to run three cafes as well. As you can imagine, a cafe of a flower shop is bound to be gorgeous and covered in flowers.
I went on a Sunday morning for brunch, and apparently the Akasaka store is less crowded than the other branches. It definitely wasn’t crowded, but had a good flow of customers coming to enjoy their peaceful weekend morning as well. There were seats outside to enjoy the weather, but we decided to sit inside to appreciate the amazing interior. I was in so much awe of the foliage and just the overall atmosphere of the cafe, I felt classy just sitting there. It was so perfect for a relaxing brunch, to read a book or catch up with friends.
They have some really pretty herb tea, but we decided to just try the sweets since we were quite hungry! (They also have various savory foods, tea, alcohol, and juice.)
We ordered the french toast topped with fruits and edible flowers to fill us up, and the also the rose jelly as a little dessert(?)! I had no idea what rose jelly would taste like, and it was actually really delicious. Just the perfect amount of sweetness without being too much.
I would love to go to the other stores and be surrounded by the all of the season’s different flowers as I dine, with some fancy jazz music playing in the background. This is one of my top recommendations for cafes to visit if you’re into flowers, or if you just want to munch on some edible flowers. (They’re actually not that yummy, would not recommed.. Just take the photos, and pick them off ^^; )
