Enoki-Tei Honten (Yokohama)

Originally the property of an American public prosecutor, this charming residence-cum-café was designed by Japanese architect Yoshizo Asaka, famous for his interpretation of Western-style architecture. It was built in 1927 and remains one of the few original Western-style buildings in the Yamate area. The dining area on the first floor is scattered with delightful antiques — some over 150 years old. The outdoor terrace area with its verdant greenery is perfect for people watching in the shade. Furry friends are welcome to join in the fun in this outdoor area.

Fill up on one of two mainstays: rare cheesecake or scones. Both desserts use the same original recipes that can be traced back to when Enoki-tei opened as a café. The rare cheesecake comes with a choice of three different toppings: cherry sauce, blueberry sauce, or fresh cream. The scones come in plain or with currants, and are served with sour cream and apricot jam.
