“Horie River Cafe” at Minatomachi River Place

The great-value bread buffet lunch at an outstandingly comfortable cafe!

For today’s lunch, I went to the “Horie River Cafe”, found on the 3rd floor of Minatomachi River Place.
From western-style to ethinic foods, they offer many types of attractive lunches.
‘Special bread buffet lunch’ (¥999)
It came with that week’s 3 types of bread; all-you-can-eat (by order), 2 types of dip sauces, mini fried chicken and salad. It was a great lunch and good value for money!







The two dip sauces were;
‘simmering pork with stewed tomato’ and ‘yellow curry with coconut milk’. The 3 types of bread were; naan, french toast and focaccia!
You can eat the dip sauces as they are or put them on the bread.




I had seconds of the naan and focaccia 🙂
The next drink was ¥150.



The rich and varied lunch menus together.


In the spacious cafe, there are a lot of nice sofas and terrace seating, and they were so comfortable that I ended up being there a long time without realizing. 🙂
It looks as though there is a barbecue on the terrace area and in the coming season, it seems to be a nice place to enjoy yourself!
