Daiwa, the famously popular fruit sandwich store in Nakameguro run by a greengrocer from Aichi prefecture, has finally opened its own permanent café. The new Da Café Ebisu not only serves the brand’s high-quality seasonal fruit sandwiches, but also offers fruity parfaits, drinks and more. Best of all, you can eat in – no more waiting to get your sweet treats home before tucking in.
Its special premium fruit sando are only for eating in and the fillings change regularly depending what fruits are in season. You’ll usually find two or three different kinds but its spring flavours include strawberries (¥2,000) and Miyazaki mango (¥5,000).
Although the price point here is much steeper than its sister shop’s takeaway versions, what you're getting are premium ingredients. Plus, each order comes with extra fruit and soft-serve ice cream on the side – everything is perfectly cut and beautifully presented. The fruit parfaits also change seasonally, but always include a generous serving of creamy soft-serve ice cream and copious amounts of fruit cut into bite-size pieces.
Da Café Ebisu opens as early as 6am, making it a perfect breakfast place before you start your Tokyo outing. If you’re craving some savoury options before diving into these fruity treats, hot sandwiches are also available in the morning.
