There are dozens of pancakes available, the cream of the crop being the souffle-style Strawberry Benedict Pancake (¥1,300), which is so delicate it melts in your mouth and so moreish you’ll be missing the dish before you’ve even finished it. It is a little more expensive than the other pancakes on the menu and takes a little time to prepare, but it is a treat that is well worth it. Besides fruit and cream toppings, there are also pancakes topped with more savory items, such as cheese, crispy chicken or a BLT variety. If pancakes aren’t your thing, sandwiches are also available, with the eggs Benedict (¥980) being a personal favorite. There are also pastas and rice-based dishes like locomoco or katsu (fried, breaded pork cutlet) curry, but though they are serviceable, they are not on par with Cheval’s other fare. There is an extensive list of teas and coffees, but the adorable 3-D latte-art drinks cost a little more at ¥700 a cup. Alcoholic beverages are also available, including beer, wine, highballs and some very simple cocktails as well as sparkling wine.
In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
