A new themed pop-up cafe seems to open every week in Tokyo. Miffy Cafe, on the seventh floor of Shibuya’s Parco department store in Tokyo, runs until May 8 and is an especially cute option for those in search of a novelty dining experience centering around the famous Dutch bunny. Dessert-wise, the Miffy pancake (¥1,380 — make that ¥1,680 if you want a commemorative cup) is solid, with a crepe-like base serving as a vessel for fruit and a Miffy-shaped scoop of vanilla ice cream. If you’ve had one fancy pancake in Tokyo, you’ve had them all, but this one will surely be a hit on Instagram.
