Some of the peeps I follow on Instagram seriously have the best recommendations on places to suss out!! As they say, caring is sharing and I guess you could use it interchangeably. One of the places that I saw on Pam’s feed was this amazing cafe / tea-house at Aoyama Flower Market. Did some research on the place and was suitably impressed with the lovely pictures taken at this quaint cafe, so made a mental note to check it out during our recent trip to Tokyo.
The nearest train station to get to Aoyama Flower Market would be Omote-Sando station. We got out from the right exit but made a wrong turn and ended up navigating the small lanes of Aoyama before eventually reaching the place. I guess the Man just wanted me to walk more during the trip and this is his way of doing so.
Thankfully after about 10 minutes on our feet, we eventually found the place. I was so pleased for it meant that my feet could finally take a break from the copious amounts of walking we had done for the day.
The surroundings of Aoyama Flower Market Tea House were serene and peaceful. Mirrored after a green-house concept, we were treated to a lovely view of Ranunculus flowers that were gorgeously displayed all over the restaurant. Yes, just the view I needed and the break my feet so badly thanked me for.
It’s a tea-house so don’t expect to be served coffee here. The beverage menu largely consisted of different blends of floral and non-floral tea. The Man was craving badly for a cup of caffeine so he felt slightly cheated for not having one. As for me, I indulged in a floral blended tea with a mix of rose and lychee flavours (I think). To satisfy the hungry, Aoyama Flower Market Tea House does have a humble selection of food items, from salads, sandwiches and this AMAZING floral french toast which no qualms about it, I just have to have it! It was indeed a visual feast when the plate was set in front of us with the french toast all dressed prettily with florals and dainty slices of fruit. Helped that taste-wise, this was really good as well. 🙂
If you are ever in Tokyo and looking for a relaxing afternoon away from the hustle-and-bustle of city life, do pop into Aoyama Flower Market Tea House. It’s easy to just chill the day away sipping tea, munching on light bites with a book in hand. Well, that’s what we did for a bit.
