La Palette in Mochimune
Service: Kind, smiling and attentive
Equipment: Spotless clean. Excellent washroom
Strong points: Fruit parfaits, ice creams and coffee! Terrace upstairs
For the past two years now Mochimune in Shizuoka City has literally been through a rebirth form its ashes of different era when people flocked to the beaches and seaside cafes and bars.
Now, very few people go to the beach but for hobby fishing and an occasional barbecue.
Mochimune had to reinvent itself. With the venue of a hot spring, some fine new bars and restaurants, a microbrewery and a whole complex of single floor hotels the city is completely changing and attracting an ever increasing flock of new tourists.
Count a 15~20 minutes walk from Mochimune JR Station, and although car parking is not difficult, some exercise will be welcome before you find the place along the street running parallel to the seafront!
Ice creams come into all kinds of favors but I particularly like their fruit parfaits!
Above is their classical double flavor ice cream balls topped with strawberries with black coffee!
Tiramisu style coffee ice cream, vanilla ice cream and nuts served with coffee!
By fine weather grab a seat on the second floor terrace to enjoy coffee, ice creams, or even wine and craft beer!
The last time we went there, that is on a sunny day near the end of the winter we enjoyed this beautiful seasonal fresh strawberries (cultivated in winter in Shizuoka) ice cream parfait!
For the sweet tooth away from the crowds!
