Today, is the year anniversary of the opening of Café Barbapapa in Lake Town Koshigaya. It was the first and remains the only Café Barbapapa themed cafe in all of Japan. The French character is quite popular in Japan and the cafe has proved to be a huge hit. It can get quite crowded at times, but you can avoid having to queue or, even worse, being turned away, if you book by telephone in advance.
The cafe has a number of draws, including the Barbapapa motifs and decorations, character goods and a fun menu. The menu is quite decent for a themed cafe. For kids the curry kids plate with dessert is one of the favourites and is reasonable enough at 734 yen. Its not a huge portion so is best suited to smaller children. They have a “vegan meat” burger plate for children too, unfortunately they don’t have details of the ingredients of the burger on their website so I can’t attest to how authentic it is. The maple choco pancakes are a bit more expensive at 1166 yen, but are a popular dish with children. They have some novelty drinks including the original cotton candy soda and their latte art selection: Papa Cafe Latte, Mama Maple Latte and Moja Cafe Moka.
