Fluffy pancakes and the ultimate French toast! A breakfast that you need to experience when sightseeing in Minato Ward

The morning on your trip greets you with a refreshing awakening. The first thing to enjoy when you wake up is breakfast, to charge your energy for the day. It's okay to stay in your hotel, but if you want memories that are a little more special, why not visit a famous restaurant that offers a breakfast menu. In fact, Minato-ku, Tokyo is an area where some of the most popular breakfast restaurants and cafes in Tokyo are gathered. Today, we will introduce four of the "must see" places in Shinagawa, Roppongi, and Odaiba.

You'll be impressed by the special French toast at "Mercer Brunch Roppongi"

"Mercer Brunch Roppongi" offers a casual and rich brunch with a New York style. The store located at Exit 7 of Roppongi Station on the Toei Subway or a 3-minute walk from Roppongi Station on the Tokyo Metro, is close to Tokyo Midtown and is a great starting point for sightseeing in Roppongi.

The interior which is centered around a fireplace, has an open atmosphere with large windows that allow plenty of sunlight. Comfortable sofa chairs are arranged here, and a relaxing time flows while being in the center of Roppongi.

Brunch menu is served from 11:00 to 15:30 on weekdays and from 10:00 to 17:00 on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. The "Brioche French Toast Brunch" (1900 yen each) allows you to choose your favorites from 10 types of main dishes, and enjoy two slices of brioche French toast, which is a specialty of Mercer Brunch.

The New York style main dish has a luxurious lineup where you can choose from marinated Nordic salmon, grilled Oyama chicken, and sirloin steak, which is a classic brunch in New York.

Freshly baked French toast has a rich taste with a moist texture and an abundant buttery scent.

There are also seats on the wooden deck, so we recommend dining while feeling the outside air during this time of year. Get energized with a hearty brunch and go sightseeing in Roppongi!

Healthy & rich "Queen's Breakfast" at "Sarabeth's Shinagawa"

Shinagawa Station is one of the gateways to Tokyo, where the Tokaido Shinkansen arrives and departs. The Sarabeth's Shinagawa store is located on the 4th floor of Atre Shinagawa, which is directly connected to Shinagawa station.

Sarabeth's, which originated in New York, offers a healthy and rich menu based on a traditional American breakfast. It is called "the Queen of Breakfast in New York" after its founder, Sarabeth Levine.

The interior is an elegant and chic space reminiscent of a social gathering place in New York. It's the perfect choice for anyone who wants to enjoy breakfast in a mature atmosphere.

There are three typical breakfast menus:"Fluffy French Toast" (1410 yen), "Lemon Ricotta Pancake" (1680 yen), and "Velbetti Cream Tomato Soup" (750 yen). Fresh berry fruits are added to French toast and pancakes, both of which have a well-balanced taste that lets you feel "the gentleness of the queen."

In addition, there are plenty of American breakfast-style gourmet dishes such as "Classic Eggs benedict" (1650 yen) and "One Great Burger" (1980 yen).

For those who want to know more about the traditional flavor, try the side menu "Fruit Spread" (200 yen), which made the name "Sarabeth" famous in the home country. Spreads made with recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation in the Sarabeth family are a gem, and they have a low sweetness with a strong fruit flavor.
