Cafe Laugh - Kazo - Saitama Cafe Guide Series

Well, this old place has been neglected somewhat recently, which makes me sad, as all of my business ventures grew from this little ole blog. But as ebi-kun has grown up I’ve had less to blog about over here.

But then today I had an idea! 

One of my favourite things to do is visit local cafes, enjoy great food and not have to do the washing up!
Plus we get to support the locals, win-win! So I’d like to share our cafe culture in this corner of the world. And maybe some of my current crafty passions and recipes. 

As I write this we are currently in a state of emergency again, it’s all a bit wishy-washy, cafes are allowed to stay open but are not supposed to serve alcohol and should have safety precautions in place. So I’ll include a COVID rating with out reviews.

Onto today’s review.

Quick note... as I do more of these posts I want to keep the same format, be aware that menus change, prices change and so do opening times. I’ll provide a link to the cafes website, I recommend checking there for current times and opening restrictions etc.

Cafe Laugh

📆 13th August 2021

This was our first visit here. The cafe has a big decking area overlooking a pond so it’s quite easy to forget that you are not out in the country. The staff were really friendly and chatty, lovely relaxed atmosphere.

We sat out on the deck, although it was mid August it was a cool(ish) day and rainy but nice enough to sit in the covered deck area.

Lunch menu was to choose 2 small items from the list, a main dish plus rice, soup and drink ¥1350
Or the same again but choosing 3 small items and a main, rice, soup and drink ¥1500
Or  3 small items plus soup, rice and drink ¥900

There were 4 main dishes:

Hamburg in teriyaki sauce
Cod and baby corn fritter
Salmon and roe on rice 
Tuna pasta

And the side dishes were:

Green salad
Chips (fries)
Marbonasu with tofu
Daigaku imo 
Chinese style cold tofu
Mizuna salad

They also had desserts but we didn’t try any this time.

It also sounds like they change the menu often and they use organic vegetables where possible. Our only complaint with the food was that they were a bit heavy handed with the salt, didn’t stop us from demolishing the lot!
