Showa-era rustic chic seems to be the aim at this old-fashioned cafe, with its dark wooden furnishings, exposed wooden rafters and dim bare-bulb lighting. In spite of the gloom, the nightime crowd here is surprisingly lively, and the coffee and desserts - kabocha cheesecake and rum-raisin chocolate cake - are very tasty.

Although most patrons seem to be here for coffee and dessert, there's also a minimal alcohol menu - beer, a couple of wines, a few mixed drinks. And Mois's original versions of Japanese curry rice are available if you want more than just cake.

Setagaya-ku, Kitazawa 2-21-26.
