This cafe is delicious and very very spaciious! Staff are kind and theres an area in front inside for those with apartment dogs or just want to see outside.

Here's some pics to give you an ideated a map!

I live nearby so visit often. Its perfect. The cafe and the park it is attached to are two of the best kept secrets around. It doesn't feel like a city at all.

I will be holding my mediations and sessions there monthly so do check it out. Best wishes, paul.

Freshness burger has added to their line up of vegetarian burger with the bean burger.
They have however dispensed of the mushroom burger which was, after all, just shitake mushroom in a bun...

Vegetarian Ramen Noodles Yes the Vege Ramen is back but just for a month. Kagetsu claims the
Vegetarian ramen contains no pork, no chicken, no fish and presumably
no beef but strangely it isn't specified (possibly because regular ramen
contains no beef??)
In addition to this Kagetsu is also serving vegetable Gyoza. A perfect
complement to their ramen and for just 300 yen.

Vegetarian Gyoza

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this elsewhere, but there's a chain of Indian Vegetarian restaurants called Nataraj. I know they have at least 3 locations, one in Ginza (7f in the building across from Matsuzakaya on the main road), one in Ogikubo (it's close to the station, downstairs in a basement floor), and another.

Really good all-you-can-eat buffet lunch for 1050 yen. Love it!

Hi Bill,
No the stock didn't contain any pork or any other dead animal. I say" didn't" coz the veggie ramen is now off the menu. I think they've got some other things on the menu but they aren't vegetarian.
Personally I thought it was good to have it as an option and its good that they are recognizing vegetarians more and more throughout Japan but the actual ramen was over-priced and fairly light weight food- I would need at least 3 portions to fill me up. Also it's Ok to take the meat out of food but the protein needs to be replaced by an alternative source such as tofu, bean based or from a dairy source. If you find any other places serving vegetarian anything, I would be very interested to hear about it.

Do you know if their stock is also meat-free? Because normally it is made from Pork.

Probably the best vegetarian restaurants has to be “It's Vegetable” in Kinshicho.

Importing most of its fare from Taiwan you can get a whole range of vegetarian food with some witty translations ("intestine filled with vegetarian diet" (veggie sausage), for example).

All foods are 100% vegetarian (something the owner takes great pleasure in explaining to customers) but not all the dishes are vegan. There is a buffet all you can eat lunch which is 1500 yen. A little pricey (except for the reasonable priced beer) but definitely worth a visit.

Turn right out of the North exit of Kinshicho Station (on the Sobu line). Walk down the street following the tracks. Cross the main street. It's on the right.

Freshness Burger have now introduced a tofu burger to their menu following the trend of other fast food chains which have recently stared selling veggie options. It's fairly basic and consists of basically a piece of grilled tofu in a bun with avocado and lettuce.

Definitely woth a try and keep the veggie options coming.

There's a good tofu restaurant in Akasaka. It offers vegetarian options.

Called Tofu-ya you can find it from the Chiyoda line exit 2. Great for lunches. Tofu-ya, 3-5-2 Akasaka (Sanyo Akasaka Building, 1st Floor), Minato-ku; 3582-1028.

From the Akasaka-Mitsuke subway station, walk toward the Sanno Shita intersection; at the corner before the intersection make a right, then a left. The restaurant is on the left side of this narrow, no-name street. Open 11:30 A.M. to 1 P.M. and 5 to 11 P.M. Monday to Friday; closed weekends and holidays.

Vegetarian Ramen Noodles Kagetsu Ramen Shop, which has stores all around Tokyo and Japan, are doing a special vegetarian ramen dish. The campaign is only on until 12th April 2009 but I suppose if they sell enough of it they may make these veggie noodles a permanent feature of their menu.
