Chocolat Café Bistrot

French in Kumamoto

A couple of blocks southeast of the Shimotōri Arcade, amid side streets reminiscent of Tokyo's trendy Omote-Sando, this charming shop has mottled red walls like a Parisian boudoir and specialises in sweet and savoury crêpes, such as ham, cheese and vegetables, and galettes (crêpes made with soba flour). Its waffles are also popular…and tasty!
