Harajuku area is full of shops and restaurants which is visited by many young people and tourists as well. In order to stand out from the crowd, many of the shops come out with special theme and interesting decorations just to attract the crowd. One such café is the Rainbow pancake that offers very pretty pancakes in a colourful environment.
The café itself is full of rainbow colors and decorations right from the entrance of the café. The café is small so there can also be a queue during peak hours
The café has a capacity of 20 people at any one time with the majority part of the café dedicated to the counter kitchen which is open concept so we can see what happens in the kitchen.
They have the original fluffy pancakes with maple syrup and 2 small scoops of vanilla cream. The pancakes are light and fluffy but is slightly bland so the maple syrup is a good add on for the pancake to make it tastier
The most popular and famous pancake of the café is their Macadamia nut sauce Pancake which comes with a pair of cute mini sugared fork and spoon. The pancakes are the same as the others but the highlight is the macadamia nut sauce which was creamy and milky with a semi sweet flavour.
There is another floor belonging to the café at the ground floor with colourful booth space and decorations. It looks like a space they will open up for workshops and special events
Overall, the pancakes are pretty soft but I am personally not very impressed as there is nothing very special about the pancakes. The texture was soft but flavours just very general. There are many good reviews about this pancake so while it is really nice but it is not so unforgettable that I will queue for it again.
