A group of us stopped at this French themed restaurant/cafe after finishing a 10K race around the Tokyo Imperial Palace grounds called Aux Bacchanales. The restaurant is located in the glitzy Ginza area and I felt a bit out of place wearing athletic clothing in this very fashionable area of Tokyo. But I was with a bunch of other grungy Americans, so I wasn’t the only one standing out.
Although the place was a bit pricey, the atmosphere and food were great. I ordered a pumpkin soup, quiche and pecan tart pie, all excellent. The total price for these three items came to about 2,000 yen (US$25). I only drank water, so that kept the bill on the lower end. There was also a bakery off the side of the restaurant that had a wide variety of baked breads. I would recommend this place if you are looking for something light to eat, have a drink with friends, or want a coffee break with some all too tempting pies and pastries. Also, a nice place for people watching.
