abientot

Awhile back, we checked out Abientot for breakfast, but their service started at 9:00 am...since then, they've changed it to 7:30 am and lunch is served at 11:00 am.

Last Saturday was a beautiful sunny day. We took the train to Makiochi then walked to the cafe.

Satoshi didn't want to try their set meals and opted for 2 sandwiches and coffee 873 yen (about US$8.73) instead.

I chose their tartine set 600 yen (about US$6), this came with a salad, yogurt, the veggie tartine and a drink (I chose iced coffee).

The portions were just right for me and the tartine was delicious, like a veggie pizza. A slice of baguette topped with pesto and anchovy paste then topped with veggies and cheese.

I wouldn't mind trying their other choices for breakfast. Hope we can go back soon.

UPDATE: as of 2/2012, they do not longer have breakfast or lunch service, instead you can purchase various breads and eat in their dining area.

Wow, that looks yummy! Taking a train to get to an eating place . . . such a different lifestyle from Hawaii's.

Thanks Jalna, the public transportation is so good here that you don't really need a car :)

Take care.

Wow, 873 Yen.. That's really random. Does it add up to a round number after sales tax? (book store style) The meal looks really great. I miss the trains!

here's the break down Dennis, 200 yen + 250 yen for the sandwiches + 23 yen tax + 400 yen (with tax) for his drink...weird yeah??

Take care.

I like how Satoshi just decides on what or what not when it comes to eating. What kind of sandwiches, btw?
