Get a Taste of Hawaii in Shinjuku at Hawaiian Pancake Factory!

Jan 01, 2019

Pancakes aren’t just for breakfast! Pancakes are a popular snack in Tokyo, and are often eaten for lunch or as a dessert. In this article, we would like to introduce you to Hawaiian Pancake Factory in Shinjuku. This café is in the Shinjuku Mylord Department Store, accessible directly from Shinjuku Station.

Getting to the Café

To get to the restaurant, make your way to Mosaic Street, a path that connects the West Exit with the South Exit, and enter the mall via the entrance along the passage. Take the escalator up to the second floor you will find the Hawaiian Pancake Factory on your left.

Though it looks small from the outside, it’s actually quite spacious and has a lot of seats!

The stylish interior décor is inspired by a beachside café. There are tropical fruits and paddles decorating the interior, which work well with the white wallpaper and dark furniture. You’re sure to feel relaxed, as if you are in a café near the sea.

Time for Pancakes!

Hawaiian Pancake Factory is known for their specialty whip cream. Their top recommendation is the Tropical Fruits Hawaiian Pancake topped with 8 different fruits. They use fresh dragon fruit, strawberries, blueberries and pineapple in this great dish!

They also have a seasonal menu, which we couldn’t resist ordering from. We got the limited time White Chocolate Pancake (available until Sunday, February 3rd). Chocolate custard is added between they layers of freshly made pancakes and topped with fluffy whipped cream. Vanilla ice cream is hidden underneath the whipped cream, which is topped with white chocolate flakes. The flakes look just like snow, so this is the perfect dessert for the winter season!

They don’t only have pancakes with sweet toppings – they also offer savory toppings as well. We also ordered the Eggs Benedict. The soft eggs and sweet pancakes were a great combination!

They also offer a variety of drinks, including tropical juices.

This is a great place for lunch or to take a break from shopping. Be sure to stop by if you’re in the area!
