6th by Oriental Hotel

This cafe/restaurant/bar is affiliated with Oriental Hotel, one of the oldest hotels in Japan. It serves some of the most awesome pancakes you can find in Tokyo.
The interior is bright and rustic! The place is open from 11 AM to 3 AM, and the atmosphere and menu changes depending on which time of day you go there. We went during the daytime to try their pancakes!

It is a large establishment with some 300 seats.

Super popular pancakes

The menu is largely based on Italian cuisine, but an item that is definitely their signature dish is not an Italian dish at all, it's their fluffy pancakes!
The plump fluffy pancakes are unlike anything you see elsewhere. They are so fluffy that people describe their texture as bitting into a feather futon mattress.
The texture is awesome. They are fluffy yet the texture has a certain springiness to it which makes them chewy at the same time.
There is some sugar in the dough but they aren't too sweet. Their taste reminded me of the one of old fashion pancakes, but yet they are thick and fluffy like the modern Japanese souffle pancakes that are all the rage right now.

They are served with some slightly salty whipped butter. The combination of salty and sweet is spot on!
The cafe recommends that you first try their pancakes with the whipped butter that they come with. But since the portions are pretty generous, a fun way to eat them is to add toppings as you eat to change the taste. Toppings cost a little extra.

They have all kinds of options you can choose from the toppings menu. I tried the whipped cream and maple syrup.
Quite frankly, the pancakes were excellent with just the butter but they were really oustanding with these toppings!


There are lots of good pancake shops in Tokyo, but this 6th by Oriental Hotel cafe really stands out. Their pancakes are both fluffy and have an old fashion charm to them too. Go there also for the laid-back interior which is the perfect place for a casual get-together with some friends.
