Sweets and all-you-can-eat are words that go together well in our books. Now combine that with the idea of a conveyor belt restaurant, and you’ve got something that sounds delectably fun and tempting.

So when we heard that just such a cafe was opening in Harajuku, you can bet we were excited! We were actually fortunate enough to have the chance to visit this unique cafe a few days before the official opening, and we thought we’d share our experience with you.

Here’s the exterior of the new MAISON ABLE Cafe Ron Ron. The name of the cafe, Ron Ron, apparently comes from the French expression for the purring sound made by cats.

The menu is all-you-can-eat for a 40-minute period at a fixed price of 1,800 yen, which you pay by purchasing a ticket from the machine at the entrance.

The ticket also includes a drink of your choice, which you can choose from the selection of teas, coffees, and juices that come in stylish bottles.

Some of the more interesting choices available include colorful drinks like rose water, mango & passion, and strawberry & passion. If you’re feeling particularly thirsty, you can buy additional drinks for 500 yen a bottle.

And now, for the sweets. Yes, they really were going around, just like at a conveyor belt sushi restaurant, except it certainly wasn’t sushi on those plates.

Plate after plate of dainty desserts moving along right before your eyes — it’s a sweets lover’s dream. You can choose from approximately 35 different menu items going around on the conveyor belt.

And unless you’re intent on eating every single item being served, we think you’ll have a pretty hard time choosing which ones to eat, as everything looks so pretty.

The cat-themed treats are particularly adorable! Here’s a strawberry shortcake with a cat motif just begging to be admired as well as consumed.

And here’s a version that combines both a macaron and cotton candy! We hope wanting to try two sweets in one doesn’t make us greedy.

Obviously a piece of cat-shaped chocolate makes cake even more magical than it already is.

We definitely enjoyed the treats we tried, but moreover it was simply a delight to see so many colorful and daintily-presented sweets going around the entire cafe.

The MAISON ABLE Cafe Ron Ron opened on July 16. If you’re looking to get your fill of sweets and salty bites in the Harajuku/Omotesando district, this could be the perfect place for you. And it could also be your chance to find out just how many plates of snacks you can eat in 40 minutes!
