Have you ever thought about that?
For example, I want to drink a delicious coffee at a retro cafe. And I want to go to a cafe where smoking is available while drinking coffee.
If you think that, you should go to a cafe named “Ranzu” in Ginza, Tokyo.
The cafe was founded in 1969 and there are some branches at Kamata.
This article introduces this cafe’s atmosphere, recommended menus and stuff like that.
Would you spend a time for adults at a retro cafe?
Founded in 1969 and located between Ginza and Shimbashi!
It takes about five minutes from Shimbashi station Ginza exit.
There is “Ranzu” at the corner near Ginza corridor street.
You will know this is a cafe because there is a signature shaped coffee cup over the entrance.
What does “Ranzu” mean?
In Japanese, “Ranzu” is written like this: “和蘭豆”. The word means “Coffee beans”.
Japanese often match letters with Chinese characters.
In this cafe, there is a board with many Japanese coffee pronunciations.
Anyway, let’s enter this cafe!
You will see some siphon coffee and cold brew coffee machines. All of the table seats are along a counter.
The counters, ceiling beams and chairs have a warm color, so you might have a relaxing time.
Smoking is available at the cafe. In Japan, Smoking cafes have been decreasing every year for our health. So “Ranzu” is an important place for smokers.
Menus matches with coffee
Try drinking various coffee
If you go to this cafe, let’s try to order coffee.
There are many kinds of coffee at the cafe. For example, blended coffee, Brazilian coffee, Colombian coffee and stuff like that.
And also, “This month’s coffee” is recommended. You might be able to drink coffee with a new taste.
The cafe is a specialty coffee shop, but I was amazed by “Iced Darjeeling Castle”. Because there is some ice of tea in the glass. So I could drink delicious strong iced tea until the end.
Pizza toast has a fluffy texture!
My recommendation is “Pizza toast”.
It has sliced green peppers, bacon and a lot of cheese on the fluffy toast.
When you bite it, you will feel a really fluffy texture.
It’s quite big but you can finish eating it easily before you know it.
Of course, it’s a good combination with coffee, so you might have a happy lunch time!
Financiers are also recommended!
“Ranzu” has some sweets such as chiffon cake and parfait.
Besides that, financiers are also recommended. It’s available for 180 yen.
The cafe’s staff served warmer financiers, so you might feel the almond and butter aroma.
Blended Coffee 720 yen
Cold brew tea 720 yen
Pizza toast 750 yen
Financiers 180 yen
