Pre http://www.cafe-gram.com/
Gram only offers these "premium pancake" (950yen) three times a day with 20 dishes at each serving time. The serving times are at 11am, 3pm, and 6pm, so I recommend you to get the restaurant 30 minutes to one hour earlier to these times so you can put your names on the list.

This pancakes tower come topped with butter and powedered suger, and whipped cream and maple syrup on the side. The texture is very light and creamy.

Cafe Asan

S 000o https://r.gnavi.co.jp/gc8e500/
This café is located near Suehirocho Station. It is a restaurant where you can relax on a hammock and eat pancakes that are a little different from the usual.

You may be surprised at its appearance. Their pancakes look like a Danish pastry on the outside but they are fluffy soufflé pancakes on the inside!
Since they are the soufflé type, the pancakes are very delicate and start losing its shape as soon as it is baked.

However, the pancakes are very smooth and its soft texture will surely make you feel that it’s a masterpiece. Its texture is rare for a pancake. You will definitely want to eat it now!


Located near Oyama Station on the Tobu Tojo Line, is the café with a classic feel that serves very thick pancakes.

Just look at this thickness! Doesn’t this golden-brown color stimulate hunger? The pancakes are soaked in lots of maple syrup and melted butter and spreads throughout your mouth when you take a bite.
We also recommend the egg sandwich where you can enjoy the fluffy texture of the eggs.

Rainbow Pancake

When it comes to fluffy pancakes, this is the restaurant to go! At Harajuku’s popular Rainbow Pancake, you can enjoy pancakes that have a soufflé-like texture different from the normal.
Even though it is very thick, you will be surprised at how fluffy it is! You can easily eat it all by yourself. The sweet pancake and the refreshing whip cream that goes well together is very popular.

Pedra Branca

A 5-minute walk from Togoshi Station on the Toei Asakusa Line. Thick pancakes are also served at this café that feels like home!
This pancake that has a nice thickness is definitely the ideal pancake.

It is a simple pancake with just butter served on top but this butter goes excellently well. The butter melts fast on top of the hot pancake and spreads lavishly.


About a 7-minute walk from Kita-Senju Station. The pancakes served at this very delicious coffee store is incredible!

The fluffy texture of their pancakes that look like they are going to melt any second can be felt by just looking at this photo.
Meringue is used in the batter so it has a soufflé-like fluffy texture. The pancakes are cooked so it still remains the perfect texture that melts in your mouth.

There is no way it is not good with ice cream and rich whip cream topped on the pancake!

Cafe Tokyo

It is located near Tokyo Skytree Station. Thick pancakes can again be eaten at this café where you can relax while viewing TOKYO SKYTREE.

The pancakes, with a thickness of five centimeters, are cooked thoroughly after receiving an order. The color is also perfect!

The maple syrup drizzled beautifully on the pancakes shine. This restaurant offers many options such as whip cream and raspberries that are topped on the pancakes.

If you think that you are going to get fat, you lose. Indulge yourself in pancakes to satisfy your appetite!

Final Notes

What did you think? All of the pancakes introduced had a surprising thickness, didn’t they? You may have had cravings to eat them. Don’t miss this chance and go to the restaurants to try out the thick pancakes.
I love traveling and eating. My favorites are everything matcha and cheesecakes.
