Bringing in cakes

You can bring your own cake for your birthday celebration without charge. We can also prepare a birthday cake at our shop. It will be prepared as a whole cake of homemade tiramisu (round / 7 inch / about 18 cm), and it will be a common cake for weddings. If you wish, please contact us by e-mail or phone at least 3 days before the reservation date.

In addition, when using it for a wedding reception, if you bring in an externally ordered wedding cake, you need to be very careful when handling it, so we charge a flat fee of $50 as a carry-in fee / and cake cutting service fee. Thank you for your understanding.

* Request when bringing in birthday cake / wedding cake If you would like a cake other than the cake (tiramisu whole cake) that can be provided at
our shop, you will be asked to prepare your own cake. In that case, the size of the cake that can be stored in refrigeration at our shop is limited to one level in height and within 9 inches (23 cm) in diameter and width. If it is larger than that, please note that it cannot be refrigerated.

In addition, please note that we are not responsible for repairing the cake if there is a defect in the condition at the time of delivery / receipt.

Beverages for groups and receptions

In the United States, the all-you-can-drink format in Japan is regulated by law and is illegal. Therefore, you will be able to choose from the wine list or drink menu. In addition, it is possible to decide on a toast in advance so that the party on the day can proceed smoothly. (There is a wine list on the website⇒ Wedding page)

Other information for groups/receptions

everyone is together and the toast is ready, the banquet will start smoothly if you receive a greeting and toast from the representative. We recommend that you prepare in advance.

In addition, if you are a guest at the wedding reception and have arranged a wedding cake, the flow will be “cake cutting ceremony & first bite” after the toast, and then the meal will start.
