Food and Drink Menu
We chose four items.
●Flower Latte Sweet set: 700 JPY, Burger set: 1800 JPY, Single: 570 JPY, HOT/COLD
You can choose between hot or cold. Considering winter is on its way, we recommend the hot version. If you prefer your coffee sweet, we suggest you add sugar syrup.
●Flower Matcha Latte Sweet set: 1100 JPY, Burger set: 1900 JPY, Single: 670 JPY, HOT/COLD
Unlike the flower latte, this one is sold in an adorable coffee cup! The matcha flavor is quite intense.
●Hamburger Single: 1300 JPY
The burger is served with crisps and pickles with the flower beaming on the bun! The burger patty is soft and juicy. Of the four things we tried, this one was a pleasant surprise.
●Flower Cherry Mousse Single: 500 JPY
The cherry blossom mousse was absolutely delicious. So cute we didn’t want to dig in!
