Since it is just across the street from the Axis Park Aoyama apartment building, Cafe 246 is the place where we'd go for Sunday brunch or a quick dinner -- or to meet a friend for an afternoon tea or drink. "246" is the route number for Aoyamadori (the main street through this district). Because it doesn't close until 2:00 AM, it has been a favorite spot for solo late-night meals. The staff is exceptionally friendly. The tab was very reasonable, too. And no tipping in Japan!

Cafe 246 is a spacious cafe-bar is decorated in retro early-1970s modern style, with a nice big terrace seating area with retractable roof. It is attached to a travel-oriented bookstore in case you need some reading material while you await your meal.

Mon-Fri 11:00am-2:00am, Sat 11:30am-2:00am, Sun 11:30-23:30pm

Favorite Dish: My smoked salmon sandwich came on something that was probably supposed to be a bagel, but wasn't. Jay says that the Japanese do baked goods well (many of the bakers train in France), but boiled bagels simply aren't in their repertoires. So avoid that. Everything else looked, smelled, and tasted great.
