Q-Pot Cafe in Harajuku ReviewJune 30, 2014
I finally have holiday after a long time war against my thesis woohoo~
So okay time to dig out some old pictures from my last trip to Japan and bring you to the magical cafe that is on Harajuku. Q-Pot Cafe is a lolita cafe specialised in cakes and cupcakes! It is one of the most interesting cafes you can find in Tokyo so it's definitely a hard to miss!
You can come down from Harajuku station but I recommend you to stop at Omotesando Station instead because it's closer. Only 5 minutes within walking distance following GPS and you'll be seeing this lovely antique cafe
I came to the Cafe with Tina, my French friend who's staying in Tokyo. I often hang out with her whenever I come to Tokyo. I really want to try Q-Pot Cafe because I read it on internet that they have interesting cupcake!
These are the menus. They serve Cup cakes, Cakes, and Macaroon! You can click on it for fuller size
I came during spring so there was a spring set menu including mont blanc + macaroon + chocolate for 2000 yen. Also there is cafe latte for every cake set and you might want to add 100 yen for additional cafe latte art
Let's go go go~~!!!
On the cashier table, you can spot some cakes that's ready to be served to your table. I decided to take some pictures of it and to be honest the price is okay but unfortunately if you're eating on the cafe, you have to order a cake set, means a cake + a drink at least
If you'd like to only savour the cake, might as well to bring it to your home to save money!
But anyway, look at all the beautiful cakes!!!!!
Even looking at the pictures now makes me drooling. Dang...
The price is expensive because well.. this is quite fancy cafe, and it's a thematic restaurant so of course they charge you higher than usual
But usually cakes in Japan is only around 300 yen so don't worry about it!
The cafe was quite spacious compared to most of cafes in Tokyo, bringing me to lolita world and to be honest, reminding me of Alice in Wonderland Tea Time Party. The decoration is cute, unique, yet colourful with all those pastel colours
Look at the cup lights!! SO CUTE!!!
Every spot is an art for this cafe..
With Tina.. Unfortunately I didn't put make up or circle lens or curl my hair because I was staying over at my friends hotel. My university friends came from Indonesia to have 1 week trip so I stayed with them unexpectedly, resulting me to not be well-dressed when meeting Tina the day after. I apologise T_T
Macaroon Cake decoration on the table!
You'll die cos of the obesity in Japan cos everything is so delicious but I wonder why japanese girls are still sooooo dlimmmm
I ordered this cupcake necklace set for 1350 Yen + additional 100 yen to get my cafe latte art
The interesting part about this cupcake is they make it as the cupcake seems to be a part of jewellery with the plate's design! If you order macaron, they'll make it as macaron-ring!
To be honest, was quite upset about the design of the latte art because it's too normal looking. Nothing special
I thought the cupcake would be just another cupcake but Mother of God, the cupcake is THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD [omg my tummy growls as I type this]!!!!
The sweetness is perfect, the cream is light and the cake is FREAKING SOFT like angel has made it. The taste is absolutely fantastic and inside of the cupcake they put fresh strawberry jam to add more taste. It's not overly sweet like most cakes in Indonesia
High quality cupcake I must say..
After eating this cake, I can't never eat a cupcake the same way again...
I can cry cos it's just SOOOOOOO GOOOODD \(ToT)/
My necklace cupcake set. Might not be that appetizing but the taste is ROCKIN the HEAVEN!
Next is this Spring Set! Strawberry Mont Blanc and Macaroon with White Chocolate. Last spring they seem to have the same menu. I must say that this is sooooo pretty, Tina and I couldn't stop taking pictures of it because omg look at it right!!
The montblanc is fantastic! It's freaking soft and what I love about Japanese Cream is it's totally not sickening and overly sweet. The sweetness is just in perfect balance, instead it will make you craving for more of it because it's just too good to be true. The ingredients and the techniques are different and I truly recommend you to try cakes in Japan one day when you visit!
They have the best cakes in the world!!
Superb I must say!!
The price is ridiculously expensive for me, around 1500 yen for a cupcake + a latte. But that was one of the best cakes I have ever had in my whole life. Maybe even the top 3! [and 3 of them were eaten in Japan]
*cries in happiness*
*looks at my bank account*
Besides selling cakes, they also have a lot of unique souvenirs to be sold! Here are some of it!
Tea Set products like mugs and tea pots..
The plates and meringue~!
I FREAKING LOVE MERINGUE ~!!
This awesomely decorated chocolate OMG OMG OMG
And of course come other biscuits!!
Okay I am soooo hungry so I'll just cook Indomie now (T___T)
Doesn't matter, Indomie is also good and tasty LOL
Also I thought that I would be coming back again to Japan in July for private holiday but oh God, it'll be totally hot so I prefer to be at home and take a rest after a long time thesis progress
So I'll just be here unless there's a job in Japan haha
I already miss Japanese Foods. And cakes...
