To fuel up for a busy day today, I ate breakfast at Bubby’s in Ark Hills. They also have three other locations in Tokyo you can view on the link below. Surprised that at 9:00 a.m. on a weekday there were only a few people. I liked the outside seating, although you can clearly hear the highway behind the building. The restaurant is on the second floor of the Ark Hills complex that has a large courtyard so kids could be outside for a bit while you enjoy your coffee. I would also highly recommend Bubby’s for people staying at the ANA Hotel vs. breakfast in the hotel.
I ordered the grill plate breakfast and was quite satisfied with it. The 1,400 yen grilled meal includes a large pancake, a pile of hash browns, two scrambled eggs, a large slice of bacon, and some pineapple and grapefruit. A nice touch was the small dish of strawberry jelly (very tasty) and the Canadian maple syrup. Overall I would rank Bubby’s a B+. The eggs although small compared to Clinton Street or Bill’s were well complemented by the delicious pancake. The bacon was crispy with a bit of fat on the side. The hash browns were the best I have had in Tokyo but a bit too much. The pineapple and grapefruit slices were a refreshing end. Will I come again? Yes, with all four kids in tow.
Just in my opinion
- Taste: exactly what I hoped for
- Price: 1,400-2,500 per person
- Service: very good
- Interior: lot of seating inside and out
- Toilet: men and women’s rooms
- Child friendliness: yes, plenty of room for stroller, and has baby chairs
