COUTUME

A famous cafe COUTUME came from Paris to Aoyama in April.
Finally, I could drop in there, and had a cup of iced cappuccino. They proudly said to me, maybe not so many cafes serves iced cappuccino in Japan for now.
At first I had silky foam, light and fluffy but full of strong lovely scents of cappuccino. When ice cubes began to melt, it’s more like iced coffee. As they say, this was a rare and great experience.

I went to Clinton St. Baking Company to have late lunch with a friend.
Both of us wished to have the restaurant’s famous blueberry pancakes, but when we were handed the menu, our minds were easily changed to potato pancakes, because we have never eaten that.

The potato pancakes are crispy and good with smoked salmon and sour cream with caviar.
We should try their blueberry pancakes next time.

I really love the beautiful leather grain, and I am going to use it as my everyday bag.
This bag must be very easy-to-use, and it has a detachable cross-body strap, providing many convenient carrying options.

I found a tasty-promised edamame snack in an unnoticeable corner of drugstore.

This black pepper flavor is limited selling in some large drugstore branch shops.
It was good as you imagine! I don’t know why they decide to sell this only at drugstores.

We really had a amazing time with the beautiful dishes and their presentation.
We are able to watch the chefs in action as they prepare the dishes behind the counter.
We had fun to watch everything because we took seats at the counter.
