Kanai, Cafe Hoseki-Bako’s owner, used to work for a company before opening the cafe 🏢

I want to enjoy the Showa period in a bar or pub…
But I don’t feel comfortable anywhere…
∴‥∵‥∴‥∵‥∴‥∴‥∵‥∴‥∵‥∴‥∴‥∵‥∴‥∵‥∴‥∴‥∵‥∴

With that, Kanai decided to open her own Showa-style shop ✨

“I want people from both my generation and the current generation to be able to enjoy the culture of the 70’s/80’s as they sip on a cup of tea…💭💝」

This was how the cafe started but…

It quickly became a hit on social media, with young girls flooding in to check the store out 💗
We were told that parents often enter with their children to enjoy a relaxing drink✨

The most popular menu item is… “Cream Soda Jewellery Box”💍

@housekibako_naomi

When you think of a cute menu item, it has to be a cream soda🍒

Cafe Hoseki-bako first started serving this colourful soda in seven limited flavours to celebrate the cafes 7th anniversary ♡
It was so popular that was added the permanent menu as the “Cream Soda Jewellery Box” 💖

@housekibaco703

The flavours are: Topaz (pineapple), Aquamarine (ramune), Emerald (melon), Rose Quartz (peace), Ruby (strawberry), and Amethyst (grape)👑
If you’re lucky, you might be able to taste one of the cafes limited seasonal flavours 🍓

Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the super aesthetic Aquamarine and Rose Quartz flavoured sodas 💖

💙Aquamarine ¥550💙

You’ll be enchanted by this gentle blue drink…💙
The nostalgic ramune flavour will bring back memories of summer 📛
Your drink will get lighter as the ice cream slowly melts…🎠

💗Rose Quartz ¥550💗

If you love pink, we recommend this peach soda🍑
You can’t get enough of this sweet, fruity peach drink ♡
The carbonation isn’t too strong, making it ideal for people who can’t normally drink soda 🐰💞

A cherry is carefully placed on top of your ice float 🍒
You can also get an adorable rose topping for an extra ¥50🌹

Of course, you can also enjoy coffee and cake at Cafe Houseki-bako 💓

But you can actually make a reservation by phoning or sending an email💕
