I needed to replace my portable sun umbrella, so I went to check out the Waterfront flagship store.

They make all sorts of umbrellas and many are super light and compact.

On top of protecting you against sun and rain, this one is supposed to be able to withstand wind too.

Hopefully this one will last me a couple of years. (UPDATE: it broke a week after I bought it...boo!)

Lunch was at Mellow Brown Coffee.

I love the space of this cafe...large windows looking out onto the street, perfect for people watching.

Ice brewed coffee, it apparently comes out of a tap (just like beer).

It looks like beer but there is no alcohol in this it was super smooth coffee.

The avocado smash plate...mashed avocado, some feta cheese, a squeeze of lemon...oozy poached egg...perfect on their toasted bread.

Will be back to try more of their menu items.

Kouign Amann from Patisserie Paris S'eveille.

Super flaky, buttery...simple goodness.

I want to go back to try their cakes.

I've roamed around Jiyugaoka on past trips to Tokyo, but this time around I think the layout of the area has changed a little (or I've probably forgotten how the layout was in the past).

I'm glad we live relatively close by now, I'll be back to explore some more.

fun seeing your new finds every time you go out. maybe one day I'll see (in a post!) the Godzilla head on top of the building; saw it on MasterchefAu when they were in Japan last year and thought that was pretty cool.

I'll look for that building, so that when you come I can take you there Rowena :)

Take care.

Is that coffee on nitro Kat?

Awhile back Tokyu Hands had flat purse-sized Waterfront umbrellas for around only $5. I bought a whole bunch for omiyage.

K and S said...

I think it is different than nitro Kirk..unless beer taps are run on nitro too.

I remember your post Jalna, when I checked Tokyu Hands they didn't have this brand so I went to check out the Waterfront store :)

Take care you two.
