This is the second installment of Healthy Lunches in Shizuoka City and Prefecture!
It is a necessity for me as I’ve been fighting the Battle of The Bulge for some time!

Located in fashionable Takajyou Machi in Shizuoka City, Cielo Azul Café looks as if it had escaped from a Pacific Island!

The menu is clearly indicated (in Japanese) at the bottom of the stairs.

Blue stairs with a blue facade…

You will have a hard time keeping away from the sweets dessert!

The furniture is great fun to study: primary school desks from France!

Very feminine in concept!

There are four different lunches on the menu all for a reasonable 950 yen!
I chose the home-made Croquettes Set Lunch!

Healthy rice topped with black sesame seeds.

Local vegetables salad.

Local vegetables soup.

The Croquettes!
Yummy looking, aren’t they?

Corn cream croquettes! Not as easy to make as they look!

Potato & minced meat Croquettes!

A drink was also included in the set but I decided to add one of their cakes!

Beautiful baked peach tart!

You can expect other visits soon as they still three more lunch sets to explore! LOL
