Cafe 1894 – Marunouchi

Posted in Places, Shops by tokyobling on January 6, 2015

I finally had time to visit the Cafe 1894 with my camera the other day. It might not be the most modern or finest dining in Tokyo but I am in love with the classic interiors of this place. The restaurant is on the corner of the Mitsubishi Ichigokan in Marunouchi’s classic “Little London” district, named so after the first English style brick buildings being put up here at the end of the 19th century. The present building is near perfect replica of the original building that was torn down in the 1960s and only rebuilt a few years ago. Originally a bank, the high ceiling and pillars make for one luxurious lunch or dining experience! Oh I almost forgot – the food was great too.

    Oh how lovely! The ceiling is fabulous. Did you get renkon soup? I’d love to visit here and quietly sip a cup of tea!

      It is the perfect location. But come early, I was there 10 minutes before opening (11:30) and I still had to wait in line!

      Yes, it is a western food restaurant. When I was there the theme was Boston style cooking.

    There’s just the picture of your soup? Do you have pictures of your main course and perhaps, dessert?
