Roppongi Hills: Cafe

Data
It's hard finding a
good breakfast in
Tokyo outside of the
international
hotels, but this
Roppongi Hills cafe
delivers the goods.
The bright, airy
dining room is big
and comfortably
casual, with glass-
paneled doors that
open up in warm
weather. The atmos-
phere feels more
European than North
American - there's a
bar area up front
(the only place
smoking is allowed),
an open kitchen, and
a pleasant outdoor
terrace where cus-
tomers can bring
their dogs. One wall
is decorated with
old hats, another
with antique picture
frames, with a big
ceiling fan above.

The breakfast/brunch
menu is a mix of
European and inter-
national influences
- freshly made souf-
fles, French-style
omelettes, crois-
sants, custom-made
salads and butter-
milk pancakes. Our
fresh basil and
gruyere omelette was
substantial in size
and perfectly
cooked, with an
interior ranging
from soft to almost
runny. Omelettes are
also prepared plain
or with smoked sal-
mon, and served with
choice of bacon or
sausage and baguette
slices.

Souffles come in
cheese, mushroom-
cheese, salmon-spin-
ach, apple-cinnamon
and banana-pepper
varieties, and they
take 20-25 minutes
from the time you
order. Our mushroom-
cheese souffle was
outstanding - in-
tensely flavored,
moist all the way
through and runny at
the first spoonful,
gradually setting as
we continued to eat.
The crust was light-
ly sugared and very
soft rather than
crusty.

The afternoon/eve-
ning menus are a mix
of French bistro and
international fare -
pork rillettes, duck
confit, beef-cheek
pot-au-feu, falafel
croquettes, roast
beetroot with goat
cheese. Beverages
include fancy cock-
tails, fruit smooth-
ies, and moderately
priced wines (Y2500-
5500/bottle). Coffee
and orange juice are
Y150 with breakfast,
and bottles of
sparkling wine start
at Y4600 in case you
want to hold a cham-
pagne brunch. Week-
day breakfast is
served 7-11am and
weekend brunch runs
8am-4pm. There's
free wi-fi if you
want to catch up on
your email. Budget
around Y6000 for
dinner with drinks,
and Y1000-2000 for
breakfast/brunch.
