Jiyugaoka is one of my favorite towns in Tokyo and I love discovering new cafes and restaurants in this area. I recently picked up a magazine issue that features places to eat along the Toyoko train line so I am planning to try a bunch of places from these neighborhoods :) As a side note, foreigners in Tokyo tend to live near the Roppongi, Azabujuban, and Hiroo areas. On the other hand, living along the Toyoko-line and the Denentoshi-line tend to be the most popular among young Japanese adults.
Anyhow, Bloom’s cafe is a tiny cafe in Jiyugaoka that seats only 9 people so it may be hard to find a seat on weekends or during lunch time. Bloom’s specializes in baked sweets so we decided to try their Quiche Plate (1000yen) and their Cake salé Plate (1000yen). The ambiance was very cozy and there was a grandma dinning by herself in one seat and 2 young girls tea-ing at another table. It’s places like this that make Jiyugaoka so loveable.
