Tokyo Cafes: Meiji 100% Chocolate Cafe

Tokyo has a wide range of exotic cafes for people who like to have their regular cup of coffee in a slightly different environment. For people who prefer to drink chocolate, or just want to enjoy a chocolate dessert along with their coffee, it might be a good alternative to visit Meiji's 100%Chocolate Cafe located in Kyobashi.
Meiji is Japan's largest chocolate manufacturer, and the company opened their first Chocolate Cafe in Kyobashi in 2004 in the same building as their headquarters. The chocolate cafe was designed by the Tokyo-based Wonderwall, a firm that also has designed Uniqlo's huge store in Ginza. A characteristic of the Chocolate Cafe is the wooden ceiling that looks like a gigantic chocolate bar.
Good company
The cafe has all types of chocolate desserts and drinks, and I have added a couple of pictures of the things we ordered below. The place is not surprisingly quite popular so you might have to wait in line in order to get a seat. We ended up by a small counter by the window, as all the tables were taken.

You can also buy chocolate to bring with you home, or give to a friend as a gift: By the counter, they sell 56 different varieties of chocolate squares in small colorful packages. In addition to plain chocolates made by Meiji's original receipt from1926 and chocolate made by cocoa beans from a wide range of countries, there is also a range of unique chocolates for the more adventurous tasters out there. Some examples of the exotic varieties you can buy are chocolate with azuki (red bean), basil, yomogi (Japanese mugwort), goma (sesame seeds), ginger, red chili, jasmine, cheese, and maccha (Japanese green tea) flavor.
