This tiny café near the train tracks west of Koenji Station is known for its artistic fruit sandwiches, in-house roasted coffee and kakigori shaved ice (served in the warmer months). Interestingly, the café's name comes from French novelist, poet and playwright Jules Gabriel Verne and is inspired by the analog ways of the eighteenth century.
Keeping with the theme, you can find books by Verne scattered around the café from which you can freely pick up to read as you wait for your order. On the menu are sweet crepes, savoury galettes and, of course, the beautiful fruit sandwiches that are filled with seasonal offerings like Tochiotome strawberries. Lattes come with adorable latte art, and you can also purchase bags of freshly roasted beans to take home with you.
