The deli counter at
Station Cafe Basel
was an unexpected
discovery - an appe-
tizing selection of
around twenty
vegetable-centric
(but non-vegetarian)
light dishes that
you can mix and
match, for here or
to go. They also
serve dessert, good
coffee, a half dozen
Japanese craft beers
on tap, and wines. A
well-stocked produce
market is located
right inside the
shop if you want
fresh vegetables to
take home.

If you're eating
here, Y900 gets you
a reasonably big
helping of three
cold deli items of
your choice, plus a
bit of salad. (The
same selection is
Y850 to take home.)
Vegetables are top
quality and flavors
are far from bland -
our cauliflower
salad was quite
garlicky, and our
lentil salad was
seasoned with a nice
combination of
spices and just a
hint of apple cider
and other fruit.

Basel's beer tap
list is very local
in its focus, which
we think is an ad-
mirable policy.
During a recent
visit we found beers
from three Western
Tokyo breweries
(Cool Air One, Ver-
tere and Tama no
Megumi) as well as
Outsider (just up
the road in Kofu)
and the ever-popular
Coedo (Kawagoe). All
beers are priced at
Y950 for a US pint
or Y650 for a 250ml
glass.

The spacious dining
area is comfortably
casual, with floor-
to-ceiling windows
looking out onto
passing pedestrian
traffic.

The shop is located
in the "Osoto" sec-
tion of the Ecute
complex, along the
western-most pedes-
trian walkway be-
tween the two mono-
rail stations and
right outside the
North Gate (not the
North Exit) of the
JR station. With its
convenient location
and casual setting,
Basel makes a good
first or last stop
on a Tachikawa
craft-beer tour, or
a take-out meal on
your way back from
the nearby Ikea or
Lalaport shopping
mall.
