I had some coupons to go to Café Live forever since Halloween and I finally had a chance to go yesterday. (They are closed on Sundays and Wednesdays, and I always want to go on a Sunday!)
The atmosphere is very cozy, almost like a cabin. They have a rack of magazines to look at while you are enjoying your coffee. Café Live forever offers a lunch menu from 11:00am -2:30pm which has many rice and pasta sets. You can also get a scone set with lunch that includes 2 scones and a pot of tea. Or you can get a cake set which is a piece of cake plus a drink.
The lunch menu is decent. I didn’t think it was anything noteworthy. Just your typical Japanese café lunch with meat, rice, salad and soup.
But what WAS noteworthy and what I had keep hearing about is their scones! They were delicious! They offer plain, raisin, caramel, tea, cheese, blueberry and chocolate flavored scones. They are a lot smaller than scones back in the states but my goodness are they good!
I will definitely be going back for scones, tea and a nice chat. ^_^
At the bottom of the menu, it explains why they named the café Café Live Forever. (I always think of the song “Who wants to live forever?” by Queen).
Where does the name of our café originate? Have you ever seen the flower ‘Live Forever’? Perhaps not, because this plant grows on a very high mountains under the severest climate. It takes root on steep hills or on very tiny spots of soft soil on the rock where chilly winds blow restlessly. It bears the heat of the day as well as the chill of the night (the temperature may go up and by 50F within a day). No wonder this flower bears its unique name ‘Live Forever’ because of its durability. Despite the harsh environment, its beauty endures and it reappears every summer as a heart-warming flower. its beauty never perishes, never, ever. ‘live Forever’ might be You. When you try your best in life.
Hours: 10am-5:30pm (last order 4:30pm) closed on Sunday and Wednesday. Lunch hours are 11am-2:30pm.
