Gram only offers these "premium pancake" (950yen) three times a day, and only 20 dishes at each serving time. The serving times are at 11 am, 3 pm, and 6 pm, so it is recommended to get to the restaurant 30 minutes to one hour earlier so you can put your name on the list.

This pancake tower comes topped with butter and powdered sugar, whipped cream and maple syrup on the side. The texture is very light and creamy. It's like a dream!


This gorgeous cafe is a collaboration between the owner Akiko Hirano, and Hudson Valley culinary arts teacher Cheryl Jean. The cafe is a 200-year-old Kyoto house that was converted into a beautiful cafe. For a perfect Japanese experience, you should stop by this cafe for delicious pancakes in an impressive environment.
