What is the Pikachu Sweets Café like?
The Pikachu Sweets Café is a small, cheery spot with bright decor and plenty of Pikachus dotted around. The café is take-out only, so the food options are small and compact. Most visitors order the honey Pikachu pastry, and a drink to go with it. The “Pocketful Drink Set” which comes with one pastry and a hot drink, will set you back ¥1,458.
Do they sell merchandise?
Yep! You can buy Pikachu plush toys with chef’s hats and aprons to remember your visit. There’s also Pikachu-themed straws, cups, and teapots available.
