Cafe Ron Ron opened its doors in Harajuku on July 16th, 2018. As of now,  it is the only all-you-can-eat cafe of its kind. The interior is inspired by fancy French cafes and held in pastel colors which includes the dishes that hold the desserts.

Visitors are seated around a big table and the thirty-five-meter conveyor belt in the middle transports the small treats around the restaurant. Conveyor belt sweets work the same way as the sushi version, if you like something you see, you simply take it. You won't be charged by the dish. Everything on the conveyor belt is included in your all-you-can-eat charge.

The dishes are prepared in batches and evenly distributed on the conveyer belt so you can't order single items. Make sure to take whatever captures your interests right away before it might be gone in the next round.

One of these items is the famous Japanese crepe. Japanese crepes are usually filled with whipped cream, cake, ice cream or fruits. There is an abundance of crepe shops in Harajuku which is why they are also known as Harajuku crepes. The mini version at Cafe Ron Ron is filled with whipped cream and fruits. Maybe you could combine it with one of the small cakes to make the perfect mini Harajuku crepe?

One of the most adorable items on the menu must be the tiny dango (sweet Japanese rice cakes). Each little rice cake isn’t much bigger than a marble. You could eat it all at in one bite or enjoy each color one by one.

Even though Ron Ron's sweets are miniature-sized they take great pride in the fact that all of them are just as delicious and high quality as their big counterparts. The reason why they are so small is that they want you to enjoy many different varieties without feeling full after three or four dishes. And let's be honest, it is also because they just look extremely adorable this way.

Pu(r)rfect Cat Treats

You might already have spotted that some of the sweets come with cute edible cat shaped decorations. Cafe Ron Ron is named after the sound a cat makes when it's purring. In French that sound is ron-ron. This is the reason why you will see a couple of cat-themed items passing you by on the conveyor belt. Sometimes whole cat shapes are attached to the dishes other times just tails or pawprints.

This cute macaron, for example, is cotton candy filled and has an edible cat tail attached. The plate is also decorated with tiny cocoa paw prints. It is almost too cute to eat.

Savory Menu - Tiny Sandwiches and Potato Salad in Ice Cream Cones

If you would like something savory before, after or in between your sweets you will be pleased to know that ten out of the thirty-five items Cafe Ron Ron offers are savory. The one pictured above is a yakisoba (fried noodles) filled mini bun known as yakisoba pan. This tiny version is the perfect trial size for the popular Japanese sandwich choice.

This might look like ice cream but it is potato salad in an ice cream cone. The crunchy ice cream cone goes well with creamy potato salad.

They even have miniature nikuman (steamed buns with meat filling). However, there is a version with a sweet filling that looks very similar as well. If you want the nikuman, in particular, you should pick the one with the twist on the top such as in the photo above.
