Akihabara: Cafe
Boo (Akihabara: Cafe)
Open 11:30am-11pm (LO). Closed Wednesdays.
Sun: Open Sundays

One of the rare non-chain restaurants in Akihabara, this charming cafe serves an eclectic evening menu of Italian-inspired dishes at very reasonable prices. At lunchtime it's more of a standard cafe menu (served until 1:40pm), and in the afternoons you can order coffee and dessert. Boo's attached sister shop, Studio Uamou, makes cute devil-like character toys, and they're both part of the Aki-Oka artisan complex.
