Pompompurin is now collaborating with the popular Akihabara maid cafe "At Home Cafe" to create a join-facility filled with the latest in Japanese pop culture opening in Takeshita-Dori, Harajuku, Tokyo. Our editorial team took a trip to POMPOMPURIN Cafe to see what it was all about!

Original POMPOMPURIN Menu Items Perfect for Instagram! They're so Cute!
There are so many different items offered on the POMPOMPURIN Cafe menu including meals, sweets, and drinks. They're all extremely cute and perfect for any of your SNS channels!
If there's one we highly recommend, it has to be the omelet rice, which depicts POMPOMPURIN sleeping with a blanket over him and the night sky with stars surrounding it. We're sure you agree there's hardly anything cuter than this!
Other rice-based menu items include butter chicken curry where you can see POMPOMPURIN in the center looking very happy, as well as the colorful and flowery crab omelet on rice.
Parfaits and Sweets Galore!
Another product we'd highly recommend is the pudding. It's in a POMPOMPURIN cup, is delicious and rich, and has a smooth texture. The beret section is made out of chocolate cookie which adds to the overall flavour!
There's also the PURIN Shiny Parfait which has many eye-catching decorations, is filled with chocolate sauce, chocolate banana waffles, and more. There's nothing better for people who love eating desserts.
Finally, we want to introduce our most recommended drink. This drink has a mini POMPOMPURIN sitting on top alongside other decorations, the "PURIN Custard Pudding Latte" and "PURIN Mango Lassi". They're all just sweet enough, and before you know it you'll have drunk the whole thing.
