Location: next to Aoyama Book Center, in shopping mall under the United Nations University on Aoyama -dori. Directions: at Omotosando metro station , exit at the intersection of Aoyama & Jingu-dori, at Mizhuo bank. Walk 3 blocks --past the Natural Home supermarket, Starbucks , KFC, etc to landmark on street: United Nations Univ Building & pedestrian overpass. At the side of United Nations building , follow signs down the escalator to Aoyama Book Center.
Food and ambiance: Lunch only; then coffees , teas & cakes for sale till 5 or 6PM. The cafe has carefully prepared,tastefully presented meals at moderate prices: there are 2 vegan menu options and one vegan lunch set; also cakes, coffee, tea, and non -veg items. Some macrobiotic products are for sale too. Our lunches were really delicious, with interesting combinations of flavors--no English menu, but the servers understand what "vegan" means and can explain the basics of the printed menu. I had the vegan burger lunch set, with salad , coffee and miso soup, and my partner a wonderful blueberry smoothie, tofu "caprese" , steamed veggies, rice (1200 yen). Surprisingly low prices for the quality and worth the trip .
