Is the food and drinks good?
I haven’t tried their food, so I can’t comment on that. However, I’ve heard that it should be pretty good for being a touristy place like this.
I’ve tasted their ice cream soda, milk pudding, and Chocolate Banana Parfait, and I liked most of the things.
I really liked the soda and the milk pudding, which was the ones I ordered. Alex had the Chocolate Banana Parfait, and that was not in my taste. It contained cornflakes and some kind of jelly, which was a weird combination.
The food looked pretty good, so next time I’ll definitely try some of their main dishes.
The interior of the PomPomPurin Cafe
The interior of the PomPomPurin Cafe is super cute and goes in yellow and brown tones with the PomPomPurin character all over the place.

After you have had your food and drinks you can go to the small souvenir shop and buy some PomPomPurin merchandise. There are everything from t-shirts and key rings to stationary and plushies to buy in their shop.
If you don’t want anything yourself, maybe you can buy something for the little ones back home. I’m sure that they would be happy for a cute souvenir like this.
