If you can, visit Meiji Palace Cake Shop even if you're not waiting for a train. It is certainly worth a visit. It is filled with cakes, puddings, custards and other delights that you can eat in or take out. Order at the counter as there is no table service.

This restaurant has attentive staff in a building built by a foreigner many years ago in a kind of ranch style. Good wine list and although not cheap eating and portions are small it has a good menu overall.

Lunch of salad, sea bass, amazing French bread and a variety of their best desserts including their famous cheesecake. The restaurant is housed in the Meiji era home of a Western trader. Food is fabulous.
