Gucci Cafe, Ginza Japan 2016


Would you believe that part of my itinerary in Japan is to go to this cafe? Seriously, I want to go here for one reason and it’s not even the bags…you got it, the chocolates.

I was in quest to find the best chocolate that will satisfy my palette. As I was reading blogs about best cafes in Japan, this cafe came up. It’s located in Ginza. First night in the city was spent finding this place. Would you believe I walked 45 minutes only to find out I was on the wrong way. I was heading the opposite direction. Already walked past the Tsukiji Market and Sumida River. Crazy I know. When I arrived there, it was almost raining. By the way I asked the police officer how to return the fastest way and he pointed me at the bus station. I was a Japan bus first timer. I don’t even know how I will pay. Good thing everything is just a Suica swipe away. 😀 😀 😀

When I saw the Gucci store, I asked the staff about the cafe and they said ni kai or second floor in english. I didn’t hesitate to care about how I look or what. I know I got money to pay for what I want so I headed to the elevator and went to second floor. I was alone in all this journey haha! Good thing coffee calmed down my hyper self after all those walking, running and bus ride. LOL!

Only bad thing was I lost my appetite. I was not able to order any food because I was no longer hungry. It was a quiet place to stay in. If you want to see the city. If only I didn’t have to log in to work that day, I may have stayed longer.

If you look down, you will notice that the high end stores in Ginza also have restaurants or cafes representing the brand. I believe there’s also Hermes cafe, the Armani Exchange ristorante and Dior too. I may try them soon too.

It’s not allowed to take picture with their chocolates display so if you want to, do it at home or very secretly.  Chocolate verdict: 4/5

Yes I like the way they taste. Just the right amount of bitterness and no after taste (my main concern). But if you are on a budget, you can buy the same taste in Godiva. Anyway I will not regret my experience as I believe there’s only 2 or 3 Gucci cafes in the world. I am lucky to visit one of them and spend roughly 6,000 yen. Not bad for a great cafe and city experience.
