Yesterday chance served me well as I had arrived early in Shimada City and took some time to look around north of the station at ease just in case I made a discovery.
That is when I discovered this place bearing two different names, b Cafe and Chubby-Boo!
It is only after having sat down at the counter inside that I discovered that many locals come to buy their coffee and take out cakes at this counter inside! Very good idea!
The reason it is also called is because the shop used to house Chubby-Boo looked after Ayano Asaoka’s mother until her daughter joined hands with her in March when they had the whole redesigned to include a small cafe!
The kitchen is big enough for Beer b Nights 2 or 3 times a month when Ayano also serves light food including ratatouille and gratin to be enjoyed with the beer!
The menu is pretty extensive for such a small place including no less than 14 coffees, teas and soft drinks with cakes made on site!
If you order a cake the drink coming with it will be 100 yen cheaper!
I ordered for my first visit a home-baked cheese cake and straight coffee!
The home-baked cheese cake!
Really delicious and so appetizing!
As this is obviously only my first visit expect more reports as I do have to taste the other cakes and participate to the next Beer B Night!
