The other day I had the occasion to pay my first visit to a cafe opened about two years ago in Shimada City, a city fast developing into a gastronomic venue: din/g.place!

SN3O0568
SN3O0568

The place is only opened only in daytime until 18:00 unless you reserve for a party of more than 5 guests past this time. Not only it is spotless clean in a new passage building, it is also completely non-smoking!
The setting inside the large cafe allows you to choose a table to your liking.

SN3O0567
SN3O0567

Even for a cafe the menu is really extensive.
For lunch they propose no less than four different sets, not only scrumptious but very reasonable.
The week end brunches are very popular and the desserts offer a good possibility of combinations!

SN3O0566
SN3O0566

I recommend a table by the window opening onto an interior terrace!

SN3O0569
SN3O0569

For this visit I opted for a combination of two desserts and a coffee for a mere 1,050 yen!

SN3O0573

The double dessert!

SN3O0570

Delicious baked cheese cake!

SN3O0571

Very generous panacotta!

Looking forward to my next visit for lunch in particular!

French Dessert: Savarin at Patina in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities: Very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: A true cafe and bistro where to relax and enjoy a good light meal any time of the day. Interesting reasonable wine and cider list. lunch & Dinner menus regularly change.

SN3O0261

It has been some time since I visited one of my favorite cafe/bistro, namely Patina in Tenma-Cho, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City. The chef and consequently the menu have changed and a check had been on the cards for some time!

SN3O0262

Among the noted changes, cakes are now in force and can even be taken out!
I still have to eat lunch and dinner again there but a cake and cappucino were just perfect on that afternoon!

SN3O0270

Tarte au citron and baked cheese cake!

SN3O0271

Apple tart and pistachio mousse tart!

SN3O0272

Tiramisu!

SN3O0265

But I ordered another cake with my cappucino!

SN3O0263

I definitely recommend Patina’s cappucino!

SN3O0264

Carefully designed as usual!

SN3O0266

Now, this savarin has a different design!

SN3O0267

Actually this new concept makes for an easier enjoyment!

SN3O0268

The savarin has been directly imbibed in white rum out of the oven inside its ramequin, then cooled down and coated with cream!

SN3O0269

Spoon it carefully!
Light and delicious!

I wonder what cake I will choose next time unless I have lunch!

Look forward to next report!

Patisserie & Salon de The HANAI in Shizuoka City!

Service: Extremely friendly and attentive
Equipment & Facilities: Overall spotless clean. Superb washroom.
Prices: Reasonable~slightly expensive (reasonable considering the quality!)
Strong points: Superb array of cakes and biscuits aimed at an adult clientele. Excellent lunch sets. Wine & beer available. Can be enjoyed as a cafe, restaurant and wine bar.

SN3O0677

Chef Takuya Hanai/花井拓也さん last year in October finally moved to the present location, not far from where his previous shop called “Taky’s” was standing. His clientele just had to move a bit further.
The difference between Taky’s and HANAI is the available pace!

SN3O0678

Instead of a single floor, HANAI stands on two floors with the Patisserie downstairs and the Salon de The/Cafe Restaurant upstairs!

SN3O0679

If you want your cakes with a drink upstairs instruct Takuya’s sous-chef, Mr. Sano, and it will be taken up!
The cakes are essentially seasonal with some regular classics. Cakes can be prepared on order for private parties and the like!

SN3O0684

Great view on the professional kitchen!

SN3O0680

Not only cakes but also succulent biscuits are available!

SN3O0681

SN3O0694

Wines, beer and more available all day!

A lovely corner for lovebirds or privacy!

SN3O0687

The place is light and so clean!

SN3O0686

A busy kitchen, especially at lunch time!

SN3O0692

Superb lunch sets!
No wonder Takuya’s clientele followed him along!

SN3O0689

My order of the day with my coffee: Ginger and lime Mousse tart!
