This eclectic mix of cold salads, quiches and desserts made in-house keep Kiku cafe a popular spot in the neighborhood. For around ¥1,000, you can pick out three items and grab a seat. A drink and soup will come to you. My personal favorite in the deli is the “Mr. Green.” This combination of feta cheese, chicken and pesto will have you forgetting any New Year’s resolution. The ambiance is casual and friendly. There are often families and the ladies who lunch. In fact, it can almost get a bit too friendly, the cook will often come out from behind the counter and check out how things are going. Take out also available.
