Looking for an intergalactic cafe experience that’s sure to rock your world? Then Milky Way Cafe in Ikebukuro might be the place for you! Last Saturday I slept in for half the day so I did the most logical thing and ordered a giant chocolate ice cream parfait with cake, star-shaped cookies, fruit, and extra whipped cream at this lovely little cafe. Literally everything here was star-shaped! The plates, the confectioneries, the interior decor… They even sold star-shaped candy called konpeito (金平糖) by the cash register. Now that’s what I call thematic.
The menu had a large choice of desserts and even some starry sandwiches too! The dishes were a bit expensive, but all of the craftsmanship that went into them were more than worth it. My Choco Mousse and Choco Ice frozen parfait was delivered to my table by a smiling waitress and was absolutely gorgeous in design. I took a couple pictures then proceeded to devour it. I then ordered some garlic bread at a nearby restaurant and drank martinis on a rooftop. Nothing beats Tokyo dining!
