Australian chef Bill Granger is famous for his gourmet breakfast menu; this is his fourth Tokyo-area venture. Breakfast is served from 8:30am through the end of lunchtime, with signature dishes like sweetcorn fritters with roast tomato, spinach and bacon (Y1400), and ricotta hotcakes with fresh bananas and honeycomb butter (Y1400).
At dinnertime you'll find creative international cafe fare - semolina-crusted calamari with aioli (Y1200); prawn and chilli linguine (Y1300); wagyu burger with beetroot, zucchini pickles, herbed french fries (Y2000). Sitting atop the seven-story Tokyu Plaza shopping complex at the crossroads of Harajuku, the restaurant offers a nice view facing south towards Shibuya, with some outdoor terrace seating.
