A WORKS In Meguro, Tokyo, Serves Beautiful & Delicious Cheescakes
If you want to have some good cheesecake in Tokyo you should give A WORKS a try. They have lots of variety and every piece is almost too beautiful to eat.
Feel free to follow favy!
This cafe run by an Okinawa native is located at a 2-minute walk from Gakugeidaigaku station. You'll be charmed by the quaint appearance of this place because it used to be a "minka", or traditional Japanese house.
Colorful and cute cheesecakes
The first thing you notice when you step into this cafe is the cakes in the showcase that are so appealing visually.
The rainbow cake
This rainbow cake is one of the signature items of the cafe. It's not only nice to look at because of the beautiful colour gradation and glaze, but it's actually really good too!
There is no difference in taste between the colour layers. The taste is rich and smooth. You'll love it as is, but for a change of taste, you can pour some lemon juice on it to give it a different twist.
Coton candy and cake
This cake is called the unicorn (¥480). On top of it, it has a big ball of cotton candy. The cake itself is divided into three sections. To the left on this picture is the berry flavoured part, in the middle is the chocolate-mint part, and to the right is the banana part. This one is also served with lemon juice.
When we went in the fall of 2018, they were serving this seasonal cake made of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (¥480). It was moister than I expected and the sweetness level was quite low but it was still delicious. If you want a different take on cheesecake, give it a try if you have the chance.
Caramel rooibos tea
They offer the perfect hot drink to go with their cheesecake. It's this caramel-flavoured rooibos tea.
Understandably so, this place is really popular. We had to wait in line for about half an hour when we went. Try avoiding peak hours if you plan to go. We introduced three cakes in this article but A WORKS has many more.
