This is probably my favorite place for lunch and tea in midtown. Not as expensive as one might think. The staff is friendly, the food delicious, and a nice selection of teas. The cafe is located in the basement of Takashimaya, and is fairly small. Gets crowded quickly. There is also a shop connected to the cafe that sells the teas served at the cafe, as well as tea pots and cups. Prices in the shop are expensive.
