Situated at the upscale neighborhood of Daikanyama, Matsunosuke NY specializes in pancakes, apple pies, and cheesecakes. Their pancakes received rave reviews online and are apparently one of the best in Tokyo. However I am a big apple pie fan so I was able only to try their Sour Cream Apple Pie and Maple Apple Pie, which uses Japanese Kogyoku apples. The Maple Apple Pie was too sour for me. But, I really loved the Sour Cream Apple Pie and is one of the best apple pies I’ve tasted. It has the right balance of sweet, creamy, and tart taste.It is definitely one of the must-visit cafes in Daikanyama. You should not miss their apple pies and pancakes! And the interiors are cool and well lit, fit for taking those picture perfect desserts.
