Place Review: Belle Equipe, A Tranquil Hideaway in Shirokane-Takanawa


Hi, everyone. Thank you for visiting my blog!

This article is a guide to “Belle Equipe” cafe in Shirokane-Takanawa, Tokyo. It’s located in high class residential area. So you might not visit as a tourist. But this cafe has classical and comfortable atmosphere. You would spend a soothing time! Let’s enjoy the cafe!

Interior Design

Once you go to this cafe, you might feel a sense of security. There are some table seats at the front of the cafe, and there are some counter seats in the back of the cafe. It’s small, but cozy cafe. If you go to the cafe alone, you will have a relaxing time.

The lighting in the cafe is dim, which makes the atmosphere even better! It has some bottles of alcohol on the counter seat. In addition, one rose shine in the right. Its beauty will take your eyes away!

The cafe is smoke-free on weekdays, but luckily it is non-smoking on the weekends. So you’re relievedly going to go there if you don’t like smoke.



If you visit the cafe, you should order at least “Homemade Roast Pork Hot Sandwich”. It’s incredibly delicious! The roast pork is so moist and soft. Moreover the cheese adds richness and the shiso leaves make it refreshing!

Once you eat it, you think you want to eat it again and again! If you think this is just something you eat at cafes, you will be surprised. I was so impressed with the menu myself that I thought so.


My recommendation is also “Pumpkin pudding”. It has a smooth texture and is very tasty! And it has a lot of whipped cream on the top. In Japan, there aren’t that many places where you can eat pumpkin pudding, so when I find one like this, I just have to order it.

Of course, a cup of coffee is recommended. The coffee tastes mild and easy to drink for you. Let’s try to order it!

How to Get There

If you are going to the cafe, you should get off the train at Shirokane-Takanawa station. After going out No.4 exit, you walk for about five minutes. There is a famous cheesecake shop nearby!

A hidden gem tucked away in a quiet residential area. There is a menu in front of the entrance of the cafe, so you will check the menu before visiting the cafe. Have a great time at the cafe!
