Congestion is expected so it's recommended you make your reservation early in advance. Usually reservations open up a month in advance with cancelled reservations showing up sporadically. Same day reservations are not accepted. If you do not book a reservation, you may not be able to get a table. In the case you show up without a reservation; entry will be decided by staff on a case-by-case basis and are not guaranteed if it is busy. You may also make a reservation to visit the Kirby Store where you will have priority to enter if you’d like but isn’t required.
If you are visiting during your birthday month please show staff proof of birthday and you will receive a limited coaster. Additionally they will write "Happy Birthday" on your plate along with accompanying music (if you do not want music you may inform staff). You may also note this in your reservation so staff is prepared.
We have also visited and reviewed this café ourselves at the Tokyo location during June of 2019. Please be sure to check out our own review if you’re interested in visiting!
