    Crisscross is an all-day cafe in Omotesando and their pancakes are known for being simple yet extremely delicious. The pancakes are accompanied by fruits, maple syrup, and butter – in my opinion, the absolute best way to enjoy the flavor of the pancakes.

    2. IVY PLACE

    IVY PLACE in Daikanyama is a fancy cafe surrounded by greenery and the terrace seats are great for sunny days. Their classic milk butter pancakes are the most popular items on their menu and you can choose to put honey or maple syrup along with the fluffy and delicious pancakes.

    I previously mentioned this cafe as an introduction to some of the best coffee shops in Kiyosumi-shirakawa but their simple homemade pancakes are extremely good as well! Their plain pancakes are available from 600 yen – affordable enough to make you order more of their addictive pancakes.

    Yukinoshita in Ginza is extremely famous for their desserts. The owner is a cake chef which explains why her desserts are so amazing.

    The pancakes at Yukinoshita are extremely thick and look more like actual cakes than the typical pancake. The pancakes are accompanied by extremely fragrant butter slices and high-grade honey. They also have pancakes with different fruits and scoops of ice cream on top.

    5. Mimoza

    Mimoza in Asakusa is a cafe that offers affordably priced coffee, cakes, scones, and of course, their most famous pancakes. The pancakes at Mimoza are basically pagodas. Their big pancake, which is only 720 yen, is five pancakes stacked on top of each other and topped off with a rare kind of butter. Apparently, this “big pancake” was only three-stack high, but in celebration of the creation of the SkyTree, the cafe decided to up their game and added two more layers.

    I hope this helps you if you are ever craving pancakes. There are definitely various types of pancakes out there but it all comes down to enjoying the simple flavors of the ingredients. That’s why people say “simple is the best.” After writing this, I am definitely going to eat pancakes for breakfast tomorrow.
