Sweet Potato lovers dream shop, Rapoppo (らぽっぽ) is located in many train stations and depachikas through out Japan such as Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Tokyo Skytree town, Shibuya. I am very much a sweet potato person and this place sells yummy treats that satisfy my cravings.
They are most famous for their “Baked Potato Apple Pie” (焼きたてポテトアップルパイ) for 820yen and you can also get the Mini version for 525yen.
I also like their danish bars (おいもやさんのこだわりデイニッシュバー) which are 162yen each. It’s like a crossiant sugar sweet potato stick!
They also have different pies and treats during different seasons so you may see some that are different every time you visit their shop. Give it a try if you are into sweet potatoes!
PS: Another one of my sweet potato favs is this place.

There’s a cute tart cafe located slightly off the main area of Daikanyama that feels like your grandma’s homemade tarts and is very well known among the females in town. This place is almost always filled with women and couples that are enjoying some afternoon tea. It’s quite close to quil fait bon in Daikanyama as well so if one is crowded, try the other one ;)
As we are currently enjoying the peaceful autumn season, pumpkin pie (around 700yen) seemed like the perfect choice. We were worried that this pie was going to be too heavy and sweet from the looks, but it turned out to be the complete opposite. It was really soft and had a strong pumpkin flavor. It wasn’t too cinnamon-y either which I liked and the whipped cream that came on the side was the perfect complement. As you might be able to see from the photos, this tart is quite large for a Japanese portion and it will definitely fill you up! The latte (735yen) i ordered came in a huge bowl too so I was really full after everything.
If you need a cute place to tea while out in Daikanyama, check this place out! PS: There’s about 2~3 tables upstairs for a smoking section but the rest is non-smoking.
