I’m back with another entry in my themed cafe series. This time, it’s the Alice in Wonderland cafe! This is part of the Fantasy Dining Series, and there are multiple restaurants mainly in Tokyo but there is also one in Osaka. The one I visited a couple of times is based in Ginza. It’s the Alice in a Labyrinth theme!
The Cafe can be quite difficult to locate I think, as it is on a 5th Floor of the Sun Building in Ginza, which can be reached via elevator and the sign is quite small. Look out for the logo if you get stuck! You can find it here on Google Maps, and it’s a 5 minute walk from the Ginza Subway Station and JR Shinbashi Station.
We booked online via their online booking form. The booking form is in Japanese, so please use Google Translate to help if you get stuck. Changing the website to English just opens a single PDF.
Upon entering, you’ll be greeted with servers dressed as either Alice herself, or the White Rabbit, which is super cute! The second time I visited, they also presented me with a pair of white rabbit ears myself which added a little something to the experience. Hope you aren’t too shy to wear them!
We were then taken to our table through an alleyway made of storybook pages! The dining space itself is decorated in the theme of Alice in Wonderland, with playing cards and some other small touches!
The waitress brought our menu which is the coolest menu I’ve seen – it’s a 3D storybook that you can flip through! There is an English menu available also. They had a variety of mains, desserts and cocktails. I decided to have one called Alice’s Tears which was impressive to look at and very tasty. We ordered a caterpillar-themed pizza for our main – it was serviceable but nothing to write home about. I ordered an alice themed brownie & ice cream for dessert and that was very visually appealing and also very tasty!
They also bring you an afternoon tea style tray with goodies, as there is a service charge so the waitress explained it’s part of that.
If you’d like to see a preview of the current menu, they have an English version of this on their website including prices!
There was a lot of little alice themed knick knacks, such as the ‘eat me’ and ‘drink me’ cards so they are very true to the theme!
One thing to note, like all themed cafe’s, this place is super expensive for what it is with mains averaging 1200円, desserts 1000円 and drinks 900円. I would say this is particularly expensive because of the additional 500円 service charge. I personally wouldn’t visit regularly, but as a one-off experience, it’s really fun!
In comparison to normal dining experiences in Japan, I would say the food isn’t really up to scratch, but the drinks were tasty (albeit very pricey) and the atmosphere was great.
Overall, I’d give the Alice in Wonderland cafe a 6/10!
Thank you for reading!
