Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The other day I made a short outing to a certain café somewhere in Akihabara!

The 5th floor of this building, the…

GOOD SMILE × animate café!

The café is currently running an IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS special collaboration café! (。・ω・)ノ゙


IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls x GOOD SMILE x animate café

Dates: 1st July ~ 30th August 2015
Location: GOODSMILE x animate café Akihabara / Osaka Nihombashi
Entry: Reservation Required (WEB Reservation)

More details here.


Today I’m going to be writing a little review of my visit to the café! (。・ω・)ノ゙


– 1 – The Menu!

Before you even get to the menu, the first thing you see when you get to your seat is this lovely table mat filled with your favorite idols! ★

This is a CANDY ISLAND Seat!

Unfortunately you can’t select which seat you will be placed at, so you have to hope that you get a seat that features your favorite characters! Here are a couple of other options that you might end up at… ♪

△ It’s like looking at a photo album of the past!!

Anyway, let’s take a look at the menu!

△ Simply fill in what you want on the provided order sheet!

Here is a look at what is available on the menu!
You can see the full version over here!

△ So much too choose from! It look me ages to decide….

Eventually I decided on the following! 

· Uzuki Shimamura’s Pink Fruit Juice
· Onegai! Cinderella
· Producer’s Cappuccino
· Decoration Muffin
· Rin Shibuya’s Chocolate Parfait 

I really couldn’t decide on a drink and ended up ordering three different ones…

– 2 – Exploring the café!

Once you’ve placed your order feel free to get up and take a look around the café… even overhead there are a number of idols to enjoy, all looking down upon you!

※ Please note that the setting photos in the store are not allowed to be photographed.

As usual there is also a special notebook to leave behind a message in! Be sure to add a little message or illustration while waiting for your order to arrive!

△ Stationery is provided!

You will also find a variety of  IDOLM@STER figures from GSC, Max Factory and Phat! Company figures to take a look at while you’re waiting! ♡


– 3 – Time to Indulge!

After looking around the café for a bit time passes really quickly! My drinks had arrived in no time at all! ☆

Let’s try them one-by-one! (*´Д`)=з

– Uzuki Shimamura’s Pink Fruit Juice –

Guava Juice + Whipped Cream + Cherry!

The included heart-shaped coaster is Shimamuu with an adorable smile on her face!

I really love guava juice and you don’t seem to find it in many places! This one was just as delicious as ever! The whipped cream adds a little touch of sweetness to enjoy! ♪

– Onegai! Cinderella –

Blue syrup + yogurt drink + yoghurt ice-cream
+ whipped cream + marzipan flower! 

The drink is also provided in a limited edition collectable glass which makes it all the more special! ♪

△ The girls all around the glass! (●´ω`●)

As for the flavour… it was my very best of them all!! ♥︎
It was so refreshing for a hot Summer’s day!!

△ The pink flower is also edible!

The bonus included with the drink is a ‘Cinderella Project’ Sticker!
I decided to stick mine onto my work computer!

Moving on to the last drink I ordered…

– Producer’s Cappuccino –

Cappuccino + 346 Production Wafer Cake

The cappuccino has quite an impact! <○><○>

I figured that after two cold drinks I would want a warm drink which is why I saved this for last…! That and I might have wanted the bonus that’s included with it…

Which is this…!


Now I’m officially a producer of 346 Production!! (*´Д`)=з

I will shut this away in my business card holder for future use!

* No business card holder included.

While enjoying my three drinks,

My food and dessert had arrived!

– Decoration Muffin –

English muffin + star-shaped ham + potato salad + tomato + corn!

A muffin for lunch!! I feel all classy!!

The muffin not only looked amazing, but was also crisp and delicious!

The star-shaped ham also had a very luxurious taste to it! *nom* (๑´ㅂ`๑) *nom*

– Rin Shibuya’s Chocolate Parfait –

Chocolate ice cream + mint + whipped cream + brownie + flower chocolate + dragees!

There is so much to say about this parfait!

There is so much ice cream on the top, but even once you get through all that you also have a lovely chocolate brownie waiting for you! ♡

They sat that you have a second stomach for dessert… but this parfait is rather large! Sure to full even the largest of dessert stomachs! (´□`。)



– 4 – Goods!

There are all sorts of cute goods near the registers! ☆

Including the glass that the ‘Onegai! Cinderella’ drink came in!

Clear files, marshmallows and badges featuring Nendoroid illustrations!

Plus there are items based on Phat!’s Medicchu illustrations!

All sorts of goods to choose from!! っ(`・ω・´)ゞ

Be sure to take a look if you come by the café! ♪

A magical menu to enjoy during this Summer!
