For my husband’s birthday/our wedding anniversary we went to Fruit Parlour Fukunaga – you can follow them on Twitter here. It was delightful! As you can see, we went greedy!
First up we have a cherry parfait and (large, I think) plate of fresh fruit.
Then the fruit sandwiches which I liked very much. I hadn’t ever had a fruit sandwich before coming to Japan, but now I have delighted upon them, I have become quite fond. You can find them at the supermarkets and conbinis too if you don’t have time to go to a fruit parlour. The cream was slightly sweet, the bread savoury. Don’t knock it till you try it.
They also have these stamp cards. You receive a stamp when you have the respective parfait. For example, we had a cherry parfait, so we got a stamp in the cherry box. It’s that easy! When you’ve collected them all, you get a small gift (so it says).
If you like fruit, I think I can say quite confidently that you will like it here. Not quite as expensive as the more famous Takano and Sembikiya but equally as nice if not more so.
As a side note, it does say to try to ‘refrain from using your phones’ but not many people seemed to be taking notice of that. Also, we went on a weekday and it did have a bit of a queue so if you’re braving it at weekends, I would be prepared. The cafe itself is quite small but this gives it a lovely homely and friendly atmosphere.
Have you ever been? Do you have any fruit parlours you would recommend?
