Cosy, pleasant food

Upstairs, so limited access (not unusual in Tokyo, but still). Lovely atmosphere, but be warned, the amount of English spoken may vary depending on who is working that day, perhaps? I was unlucky, I think, and got very friendly and eager to please service that involved a certain amount of mime and pulling up pictures on my phone. And waving the always life-saving card a friend made for me that explains not only veganism but Coeliac disease (but then, I basically have to do similar in English speaking restaurants, and it's my own fault for coming on such an impromptu trip that I didn't really have time to learn even basic keywords) Ahem. Anyway, my own fault, and they were genuinely nice.
I had the mixed lunch platter, and it was delicious. Miso soup, a mild slightly Mexican style bean dish, brown rice, a steamed half carrot, salad, grilled tofu and something I didn't eat because it looked suspiciously bread like and I wasn't 100% I'd made it through on the Coeliac thing, but that might just be my terrible paranoia about not getting vilely ill on holiday, and a coffee. The coffee was very much Tokyo style and Tokyo standard, so I probably would have been much, much happier with tea, but I felt I needed the caffeine hit.
Great atmosphere, great space, nice people.
Delicious food, Friendly service, Nice atmosphere
Variable English of staff, Limited lunch menu (I think? Maybe?), Tokyo-standard coffee
