A retro coffee shop "gion" located just a minute's walk from JR Asagaya Station. It seems that this shop has swing seats in the shop. What does a swing in the store mean? I was curious, so I immediately entered the store.
I went there after 15:00 on Saturday. Most of the seats were already occupied, thinking "Lunch time is over and I wonder if it's vacant". I was able to sit smoothly because the seats were vacant just when I entered the store, but there are some people who give up and go home because they are full. It's popular.
The interior is retro and girly. It feels a little narrow, but it also has a nice atmosphere.
The menu brought by the waitress of the bob is a pocket file ! I completely fell in love with the handmade design and unique layout. For some reason, it's great to have a copy of the telephone card . I love.
When asked for recommendations, he smiled nicely, saying, "The most popular is Napolitan, but other than that, cheesecake and waffles. The drink is ice wiener coffee. Fruit juices are also delicious." I had already finished lunch, so I decided to order light meals and drinks other than Napolitan.
■ It tastes like a hassle!"Ice Wiener Coffee (500 yen including tax)", which came in a tall glass, is a cup full of thick cream.
When I try to eat a smooth cream ... Oh, it tastes like a hassle! Although it is rich, it is not persistent, and after swallowing, a soft butter-like flavor remains in the mouth . The refreshing coffee underneath is also delicious.
"Banana juice (550 yen including tax)", which is a cute glass with a chunky form, is a milky cup where you can fully enjoy the sweetness of bananas. The aftertaste is refreshing and easy to drink, and it is finished in a taste that is likely to be loved by a wide range of generations. It's a juice that makes you feel a little nostalgic.
■ What is the secret taste ...?"Waffle (520 yen including tax)" baked using original flour comes with butter, strawberry jam, Ogura, and fresh cream. You can enjoy it by topping it to your liking.
First, take a bite without adding anything. The outside is crispy and the inside is fluffy and delicious! The fruity scent that spreads faintly when chewed seems to be created by the secret flavor of raw orange peel.
There are 4 waffles, so you can enjoy the first one as it is, and the second one with jam and cream. There is a lot of volume so you may share it with your friends.
The "baked cheesecake (470 yen including tax)", which is full of the richness and aroma of cheese, has a moist and smooth mouthfeel. The cheese flavor comes first, followed by the pleasant acidity.
In addition, if you order these light meals with drinks, you will get a 100 yen discount on each.
■ By the way, what about swing seats?The swing seat that was the main purpose. It was already filled when I came to the store, but I was asked to move the table specially because a seat was vacant on the way.
A swing hung from the ceiling with a chain shakes more than expected! With this feeling, it seems that inner muscles can be trained. It seems that there is no feeling of oppression compared to ordinary chairs, probably because it shakes a little. I want it at home.
Asagaya's coffee shop "gion" is a fusion of retro and fairy tales. If you have trouble eating around Asagaya, why not consider this as a candidate?
