Aoyama Flower Market Tea House, Tokyo


Also within walking distance of Dominique Ansel Bakery and Magnolia Bakery, you’ll find Aoyama Flower Market. Only the Aoyama Flower Market in Omotesando is where you will find a hidden away cafe out the back. This is a place that will transport you away from the tornado of people in Tokyo to a quiet oasis that is like a greenhouse.

What piped my curiosity was their amazing looking flower parfait. Starting with a fragrant rose jelly that then folded into layers of cream, mousse, sponge cake and ice cream. A highlight was the sweet relief from the slight tartness from the blueberry mousse. At the bottom you’ll find granola that gave a crunchy texture. Granola seems quite popular in Japanese desserts but I’m not a fan as it destroyed the delicate balance of flavours with it’s overpowering taste. Sprinkled on top were dried strawberries that gave a tasty sweetness. There was also a dried rose but it was stale and weird in my mouth – not sure if this is what dried roses taste like?

Flower Parfait (¥918)

Aoyama Flower Market Tea House is so gorgeous and beautiful with an amazing atmosphere – the Japanese definitely know how to make cafes and restaurants. The flower parfait I got was pretty as a picture but sadly it was too breakfast like for my taste. If you don’t mind granola in your dessert than this would be your thing.
