24/7 Restaurant is a great family friendly cafe located in Minato Mirai. I heard a lot about how popular this place is amongst moms before visiting but once we got there, it was clear that literally every group dining here had a young child or a baby.
The place is decorated beautifully and although it’s very kid friendly, it still has a sophisticated and stylish touch to it. Can you believe their high chairs are the Stokke high chair?? fancy.
The best part of their lunch is that all the meals include a drink bar (that is all-you-can-drink) and all-you-can-eat bread. It was amazing. I got up so many times to refill or get a different drink and kept getting unlimited freshly baked bread. mmm Not to mention the food was also pretty good. The kabocha lasagna (1300yen) was delicious and filling. The breads were surprisingly all very good too.
If you are looking for a family friendly option in Minato Mirai, I highly recommend this cafe/restaurant. This place seems to always have long lines so prepare to wait in line or come right when it opens.

Located in Jiyugaoka, this bakery cafe has a soup or salad and all you can eat bread lunch set that women especially seem to love, so I had to go check it out. Their all you can eat bread is made from rice, komeko bread (米粉パン), which is currently a trend in Japan and they recommend heating it in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds before you eat to have a very mochi mochi texture and I have to say the bread was delicious!
I got the B set which came with the simple veggie soup with lots of fresh veggies (surprisingly filling), quiche (which was nothing special), all you can eat bread (so good!), and a drink of your choice for 1200yen. The other soup in this photo is the A set which was pretty much the same as B set except it had the potage soup instead of the veggie soup which was also yummy for 1200yen.
The cafe is located on the 2nd floor and there’s a small bakery on the first floor right when you walk in so if you want to just buy the breads instead of dinning here, you can do that too. Check it out if you are close by.

Happy Belated New Year!
Hope everyone is doing well. Apologies for the lack of updates but I’m finally posting a yummy traditional Japanese place located inside of Roppongi Midtown.
Famous for their Tsukemono (pickles) from Nagoya, this restaurant serves seasonal fish with simple healthy options that most Japanese people would like to eat as an everyday meal. The fish is cooked perfectly and the sides are also great. It’s pretty awesome how you can get a healthy traditional meal in Roppongi Midtown. Check it out if you’re in the area.

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.
