A breakfast spot I highly recommend is the Thrush Cafe at Happoen in Shirokane. On the weekend, their breakfast hours are quite early, served from 8am with the last order taking place at 10am. You can choose to be seated either outside in the nice, sunny balcony area or indoors on the trendy tables. Breakfast with eggs are available only on Saturdays and Sundays for 1200 yen. During the week, they have their famous “platinum pancakes” with fresh berries for 1500 yen. For an additional 200 yen, you can have coffee or tea with free refills. After having a nice, relaxing time being served delicious food you can take the elevator down to the 1st floor and step out through the door to the Japanese Garden.
