Service: Easy-going, kind and smiling
Equipment & Facilities: Overall very clean. Excellent washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Healthy food. Great beer list. Can be patronized as cafe, restaurant or bar.


having to eat out for lunch also means a constant search for healthy food, otherwise….
Shichiken Cho, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, is an area where you can find a few trendy cafes/bars/restaurants serving healthy and tasty food!
The latest is ICN cafe!


It is part of a concept combining show room, shop and cafe/bar which can also be booked entirely for private vents!


You will find some interesting items and collectibles!


Very modern and slightly zany kitchen!


You can patronize it all day a cafe or bar as well!


Very reasonable and plenty of variety for lunch!


Although the pasta, pizza and locomoco look delicious, I would recommend the Vegetable Sommelier Lunch for your first visit!


This particular lunch is designed with the help of a top Shizuoka vegetable Sommelier. Ms. Tomoe Amano!


And they also provide a full description of the dishes down to vitamins and all that!


My lunch!


Now, what did we have there?


Chinese cabbage, carrot and chicken soup!


Very tasty white rice with a few grains of black rice!


Chinese cabbage and rape flowers salad rolls!


Very original kabocha marinated with Shiozuoka Oranges and rosemary!


Chinese cabbage, rice flour and soy milk gratin!


And lemon tea to wash it all down!

Expect a few more articles as I have to not only sample their pizza, pasta and locomoco, but also Baird beer (Numazu City) among the 31 beers they have on the menu!
