The love story between America, Japan anf France continues!

Service: Very friendly, smiling and attentive
Equipment & Facilities: Great overall cleanliness. Superb washroom in same building separated from the cafe.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Very generous cafe/bistro multi-genred gastronomy. Great variety. Great products. Entirely non-smoking in very modern atmosphere. Great books!

Very busy on opening day in spite of Typhoon No 27!

The center of Shizuoka City is definitely taking a big turn towards modernity with a completely renovated Den Building in Aoi Ku 5-10 minutes straight walk from the Shizuoka JR Station!

Entrance sign from indoors.

Taita Company opened its new venture of the first floor of Den building with a vast cafe cum book store with the name of Blue Books Cafe. This the 19th different restaurant or cafe (to which must be added 6 more stores) although the company has succeeded to conceive them all in different genres.

It is both a cafe restaurant for lunch, a cafe in the afternoon and a restaurant in the evening although you could easily combine two of them as you are welcome to stay as long as you want for a drink.
It also doubles up as a multi-genred bookstore of a higher level.

The books also make for great decoration!

SN3O5085

One can choose (if available) a spot of his/her choosing for maximum enjoyment.

SN3O5097

There is also a comfortable entrance/exit linking to the rest of the building and its shops!

Take a seat near the kitchen and bar if you are interested in the workings of the place!

The menu is pretty large for lunch and is written in English (with very few typos!)!

SN3O5086

Since it was my first visit I decided to have a go at one of the best offerings: Foie Gras Poele (not “poire” which means “pear”! LOL) and Berry sauce Burger!

SN3O5087

Fresh leaves salad and drink included!

SN3O5089

A real beauty. don’t you think? And really big!
At 17 US $ ridiculously cheap!

SN3O5090

Home-made grilled hamburger steak with superior beef!

SN3O5091

Real foie gras separately poeled/sauteed with a beautiful cranberry sauce and real cranberries! Top American gastronomy (with a French touch!)!

SN3O5092

Plenty of absolutely fresh vegetables!

SN3O5093

Plenty of chips!

SN3O5094

Even the buns are worth the visit!

  1. You know, my husband would love it (they shouldcall it Rossini hamburger maybe???) but I would ask a double foie gras instead of beef and foie gras 😉
