Alice Cafe (アリス)
The best advice in the Matrix? Yep, follow the White Rabbit. For me I hope to follow him to one of the several Alice Cafes in Tokyo. I am not particularly bookish so when I do like a novel or story it ends up holding a very prestigious place on my bookshelf. Alice happens to retain one of those prized positions. In addition, it is thanks to Alice that I came to learn of the Japanese alternative fashion – lolita. I don’t think there is a lolita brand that hasn’t released a print or dress inspired by her.
There are several locations so it will be difficult to make a choice:
- Shibuya – features an amazing carousel inspired dining section and I think a massive stained glass wall.
- Ginza – has a brilliant entrance where you literally enter through gigantic pages from the book. There are also incredible playing card table tops as well as tea cup booths.
- Ikebukuro – Here you can sit inside of a chandelier! I also like the wall of crowns that each contain a charming illustration.
- Shinjuku – at this location you can dine inside the labyrinth!
I am pretty sure reservations will be needed for this journey down the rabbit hole.
