After shopping in Harajuku, Shibuya and then Omotesando. our legs were really tired and we were in need of drinks and snacks.
Starring right above us is the Bvlgari il Cafe in the glitzy Omotesando which has become the new Ginza in Tokyo. The Bvlgari il Cafe is located just above their flagship shop here.
There are 2 sections, one sells chocolates and the other is a full cafe.
Ice water is provided free of charge to all customers, and it is refilled promptly.
This cafe is always crowded with people who stays here for at least one hour or more, so waiting is necessary. But it's worth the wait just to experience the Bvlgari experience if you have not tried any of their resorts or hotels.
The breads are presented in special Bvlgari boxes which looks like jewellery boxes.
This was our Soup of the Day - Pumpkin Soup (800 yen)
The staff was attentive and asked if we wanted to share our mains. They then helped us to split the mains into 2 portions. Excelent service even without us asking. Our first main was then Spaghettini with tomato sauce, goat cheese and orange peel (1,600 yen). The combination is a bit weird, but works well.
The other was this Homemade Tagliatelle pasta with zucchini puree and squid (1,700 yen). Seafood was fresh and no complaints.
More bread was brought out throughout our meal.
Dessert was the main attraction here at Bvlgari iL Cafe. We ordered the BVLGARI chocolate sundae (1,500 yen), which had a beautiful Bvlgari chocolate ribbon and chocolate ice cream. Very refreshing on a warm summer evening.
The Peach carpaccio with basil and peach sherbet (1,300 yen) which is available in the summer, is equally refreshing.
To top it off, we also had a Bvlgari cocktail BLV (2,000 yen)
What came as a rest pitstop became our light dinner.
It's quite an experience to enjoy the Bvlgari experience here in its cafe at Tokyo, and we will recommend you to visit this cafe the next time you travel to Tokyo. And BTW, they have 2 Bvlgari cafes in Japan, the other located in their Bvlgari building in Ginza.
