Jiyugaoka Bakeshop is a great place to start the day before browsing zakka stores in Jiyugaoka (Meguro ward).
Located on the 4th floor of the Idee shop, this café and bakery serves breakfast fare starting at 10:30am weekdays and 9:30am on weekends. Lunch and dinner are also available. Hearty breakfast choices include huevos rancheros, pancakes, bacon and eggs and a variety of amazing baked goods. Everything is delicious and the décor, which is an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, comic art, and kitschy objects, is homey and relaxing.

I first visited Japan in 2001 and since then have returned many times. With the efficiency and reliability of its transportation, the graciousness of the people, and the dedication to quality in food and service, Japan has been my standard for modern travel convenience. Every return has reminded me of the remarkable depth and diversity of the country with no two trips being alike, despite retracing steps through familiar neighborhoods. The constant dynamism of the urban centers combined with the emphasis on tradition, sense of aesthetics, and attention to detail make it one of the most exciting places to visit and an inexhaustible land for novel experiences, modern and ancient.
