In addition to the charms of its unusual location, Bowling Cafe is quite spacious, provides free wifi, and is very close to Shibuya Station, so as well as hungry bowlers it also attracts an afternoon crowd of people working on their laptops. The food menu is more ambitious than you might expect, and our grilled pork plate (Y1200) featured excellent heirloom-breed pork from Kagoshima as well as roast Brussels sprouts and other seasonal vegetables.

Other gourmet pork dishes, pastas and pizzas round out the food menu, and drinks options include a few craft beers by the bottle and artisanal root beer. Lunch is served until 5pm and starts at Y750, which includes a main dish plus a beverage. The cafe overlooks three lanes of the bowling alley, separated by glass, although they don't seem to be too active on weekday afternoons.
