'My Little Pony' Café Coming to Tokyo

| Cafés , Tokyo

The two key elements at the heart of My Little Pony are earnest friendship and sparkling cuteness. Those are both things Japanese society has long held in high esteem, and this month fans of this franchise can gather and dine at the newly opened My Little Pony Pinkish Café in Tokyo.

The café is even located in Harajuku, the entire country’s mecca of girlish fashion. Officially called the My Little Pony Pinkish Cafe, the restaurant is a collaboration with Sweets Paradise, a chain of buffet restaurants that’s especially popular for its desserts.

Six My Little Pony food items are on offer (all as part of a set that includes a drink), including Pinkie Pie’s Pinkish Cupcake.

There's also Twilight’s Magical Ice Cream Parfait, made with purple sweet potato ice cream to match the hue of her coat.

There are seven pony-themed drinks, such as the cotton candy-topped Rainbow Dash Cotton Cloud Candy Soda, which has the pegasus relaxing atop the fluffy confectionery.

Also, to commemorate the opening of the café, on the first day from 11 a.m. the first 100 customers who arrive will receive a My Little Pony Light Bulb Soda.
