  • Yeah it's really nice here and they open at 9:00 a.m. and they only open up on a few days on the weekends

  • Yeah because she still works during the week so she does this on the weekends with her family, this cafe.

  • But it's like it really is in like the country but it's a beautiful area.

  • There's already like... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

  • Like 8 cars and it's only it's only been open for like 30 minutes so they're doing really good.

  • and yogurt I think this is? Yeah, yogurt.

  • It's really, really good.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • This strawberry is seriously amazing. Everybody is amazed with how good this strawberry is. Right?

  • Ok, now they're not reacting, hahaha!

  • CINDY (little sister): We're not sure if we should talk on this...

  • But yeah, it takes like natural sugar... haha

  • CANDY: Because when I panned the camera...

  • Everybody was like... HAHAHA!

  • CINDY: This whip cream is really good.

  • But yeah, this whip cream is, you know, homemade too. They just made this and so

  • with that paired with the sweet strawberries, it's so amazing. It's really, really good.

  • There's like custard in the middle of this with like the strawberries and whipped cream

  • and... I don't know what this is. It's like some kind of...

  • CINDY: It looks like the melon bread we bought in Asakusa.

  • It looks like melon bread but it's some kind of big pastry. Then, of course, their amazing local strawberries.

  • The strawberry farm is actually not that far from here and that's where they get them from.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • We just finished our meal and we're on our way home now and I really really enjoyed everything.

  • I actually was so... I don't think I've ever actually had real fresh strawberries

  • because it tasted so different and the texture was... it almost kinda melts in your mouth.

  • Like the first bite. And that strawberry that they use there is local.

  • It's actually the local farmer next door.

  • So I actually saw one of the servers go down there and bring up a fresh batch of strawberries

  • to put in the desserts.

  • Yeah, they're bright red and our mom actually described it the best.

  • She said there's no sourness to it. So it's all sweet.

  • Yeah that's what it was... it tasted like it already had sugar on it

  • but it was completely...there's no sugar added. It was very, very sweet and juicy.

  • And that was the first time I ever really tasted like... oh, this is what a strawberry is supposed to taste like.

  • Yeah, that's what it should taste like. Those are like the fresh... It's in season right now too.

  • The bread is also from a local bakery so that was really good too

  • and the egg... my egg was amazing. Even the little salad was really fresh.

  • I know. It looked so fresh that it looked fake.

  • I know, it did almost look fake. Um, the jam was really, really good and I mixed it with my yogurt.

  • Even though I think it's probably for the bread. I just put it in my yogurt because it's was so good.

  • Yeah, that was good too.

  • And the french toast was super fluffy and it wasn't sweet. That's what I like about french toast

  • if it's not sweet. I just want the syrup to be sweet and that's how it was.

  • Right. And earlier I said it was like the best french toast I had and my dad made fun of me.

  • He's like, "Really? Seriously? The best French Toast?"

  • He didn't believe her! Hahaha!

  • No, I really meant it. I sincerely meant ti was the best French Toast I've ever had.

  • It's amazing what they did with the place.

  • Yes, and it's a big deck. Because a lot things in Japan are small...

  • but it's a big wide, open space. It's got a great view of just the countryside of Japan.

  • Right. And I like the countryside.

  • Yeah and they did also put in a sakura tree.

  • So if you do come during that season, you'll see... there's a table there where

  • the cherry blossoms are hanging over and it's really pretty.
