Make yourself comfortable at Koenji's Cafe Apartment, where you are given a pair of slippers at the door. The floor plan is that of a 1DK apartment, strikingly similar to the domiciles of many Tokyoites. Low tables and soft cushions line the walls; green plants inhabit the corners. Picture books and magazines await perusal, while crayons and white paper placemats are provided for more creative moments.

Relax with a decadent Royal Mango Milk Tea or a cold bottle of Corona with lime. The food menu is limited to a few variations on omu-rice (Y980 each) and the croque monsieur (Y680), plus a few small dishes like sausage links and pickles.

Each season, the cafe showcases special desserts from around the world. Vietnam is the current destination on the "world sweets tour," with tapioca and sweet beans over crushed ice topped with coconut milk, banana chips, and nuts. Monthly Friday-Flyday nights feature live music for free or a small charge.
