Micasadeco & Cafe is a speciality pancake shop with locations in both Tokyo (東京) and Osaka (大阪). The unique interior decor of the shops provides the perfect relaxed environment whether you want to stay in and chat with friends and family, study or work. Pair this with the most delicious, fluffy ricotta cheese pancakes you will ever taste and you’ve got yourself an unmissable cafe experience!
The owner of Micasadeco & Cafe designed this space based on his experiences in various locations around America, South East Asia and Europe. The unique combination of decor from around the globe results in a diverse theme that is hard to pin down but it still manages to provide an environment that is extremely relaxing.
The exposed concrete walls are painted a turquoise color reminiscent of the Mediterranean, while the colorful cushions and hanging lamps have been brought over from Bali. Many of the dishes, including the silver and wooden plates, were collected in Thailand.
The extremely fluffy, ricotta cheese pancakes that bring everyone rushing to Micasadeco & Cafe are carefully prepared made over a span of 20 minutes. The owner wanted to provide a “kawaii” (cute) white pancake that is unlike any other. Many hours were spent with the chef researching how to create a pure white pancake without leaving any of the batter raw. The right balance of ricotta cheese, meringue, maple syrup and whipped cream was pursued until they reached perfection, resulting in the angelic 3cm-thick pancakes they serve up today.
