Apologies for the delay in updates. A friend of the wife and I stayed with us for the last week and so Gunpla and stuff was on the back burner for a while. There are a couple of good things that came out of this though. The first thing that I’m going to pick up on is the Gundam Cafe.
However, due to my current freedom, I was able to hit the cafe this last week as our friend wanted to stop by Yodobashi to pick up some stuff before heading back to the states. If you’re able to go in during a weekday, it looks like there isn’t much of a wait. Lets take a look at the interior. You’ll note that overall the walls seem to follow the armor styling and marking of the RX-78.
Next up, the food and drinks. Since we had already eaten lunch, I just tried the Haro latte. For the drinks, everything was just your regular cafe latte, etc, with only the Haro latte being different. I would imagine that the bar time might have more specialized drinks. The food however followed Gundam naming conventions, with Char’s ice cream, Acguy ice cream and so on.
Overall, the food and drinks, for what I’ve had, is nothing special. However the prices were quite reasonable, for example, 350 yen for a latte. This puts it on par with other cafes easily. That was a bit of a suprise to me, but I am still not sure how the bar time prices go. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to check it out soon. If you collect a certain amount of points you’ll get an ID card that supposedly lets you get secret menu items, as well as saluted by the staff when you order. So, a good experience to have, not quite sure it’s worth the long wait on the weekends, but definitely worth checking out once.
