Royal Garden Café, Kita-Aoyama  北青山

Conveniently (for me anyway) located on Aoyama Dori (Route 246) in between Gaienmae and Aoyama Itchome stations, Royal Garden Café offers decent lunch sets in pleasant surroundings.

Usually packed, the dining area is dominated by large, robust wooden tables which help create an almost “farmhouse kitchen” feel. To the front of the shop is the in-house bakery - lunch sets come with a small basket of bread, accompanied by olive oil and some leaves.

A smaller dining area is available on the decking outside, from which one can enjoy the local scenery and the marauding TV/ film crews that seem to believe that this particular restaurant is the only location in Tokyo. 

Hamburger in demi glace sauce – ample, rich tasting.

Spaghetti carbonara – tasty, but maybe a little too salty.

Spaghetti, all'Arrabbiata with bacon and aubergine - my dining partner thought it not the best he'd seen.

Stewed beef with onion and anchovy - delicious, moist, flaky meat.
