Sweets using seasonal fruits at Lion CAFE in Yamashina

Located a 3-minute walk from Yamashina Station, [Lion CAFE] is a cafe offering pancakes, parfaits, and light meals using seasonal fruits. The chocolate strawberry pancakes are fluffy pancakes baked by a dedicated patissier and topped with chocolate spheres and strawberries. Another reason for their popularity is that customers can enjoy the finishing process of melting the chocolate right in front of their eyes.
