Moomin Cafe ムーミンカフェ

Do you know the Moomins? They are the characters from a fairy tale created by Finnish writer, Tove Janson. These characters have a long history as they first appeared in picture books 1945. They seemed to more popular in Japan than in Singapore and there are 3 cafes (2 in Tokyo and 1 in Hakata)
Like most theme cafes, a certain ambience is created when the inspiration of the designs are drawn from the book. As for the food menu, it varies between the shop and also different time.

While waiting, get some free bread that is from the same Moomin Bakery

The omelette rice (¥1000)  is from the tea time menu but it honestly has huge room for improvement. The tomato rice was dry and bland, merely wrapped in a light egg crepe.
Moomin is like a star in the restaurant. It moves around the tables for people to take its photos.
 The Espresso Latte (620 yen) 

The desserts are not very stunning too in terms of the presentation and the taste doesn't qualify either. One can keep the Moomin cup for this seasonal dessert which was mango pudding (¥620).  

Moomin Cookies from the retail outlet at Tokyo Station
This outlet in Tokyo Dome City is also the only place with bakery section. There is a bread section where you can have free flow of bread.  Okay, conclusion, it's a good place to go for kitchen merchandise or other products but not for food.
