紅鹿舎 outside
50 years ago no one really knew what pizza was and the only place you can eat it was an Italian restaurant owned by a former American soldier in Roppongi. (this restaurant is still there, but different ownership) A person who owned a coffee shop went to eat pizza at this restaurant and loved it. He knew that if he served at his shop it will give his business a kick and one of the few places to have pizza. Unfortunately, he didn't have the recipe to make the doe, so he used regular bread instead and invented PIZZA TOAST. His shop became so famous that coffee shop owners from all over Japan came to eat it and copied the recipe in the 70's. You don't see Pizza Toast that often at coffee shops now, but if it wasn't for BENISHIKA at Yurakucho, pizza would have been introduced much later to people through out Japan.

Benishika is an old fashioned coffee shop with a wide variety of food and drinks. In the old days, Yurakucho was the place to go see movies and many couples would often meet at Benishika before going to the movies.


紅鹿舎 pizzatoast
This is the original Pizza Toast for 800 yen. Nothing special about it with so many pizza shops all over Tokyo now, but its very nostalgic to many and reminds you of the old days in Japan. People didn't eat much cheese until Pizza Toast was invented and to many it was their first experience of having melting cheese.


紅鹿舎 hotcake
Other notable dishes are HOTCAKE for 800 yen, its the simple standard Hotcake that all Japanese people love,


紅鹿舎 waffle
STRAWBERRY WAFFLE for 1,000 yen, which comes with fresh strawberries, strawberry ice cream & sauce,


紅鹿舎 blueberry pie
BLUEBERRY PIE for 1,000 yen and the pie it baked once an order is placed,


紅鹿舎 strawberry paffet
STRAWBERRY PAFFET for 800 yen,


紅鹿舎 カフェベネチア
and their original CAFE VENETIAN for 800 yen, which you pour espresso type coffee over ice cream.


紅鹿舎 lunch
They also serve various lunch sets during lunch time between 800-1,500 yen, which is popular to people working near by.


紅鹿舎 inside
Many of the famous Yurakucho shops from the 60's & 70's are gone, but Benishika is one of the few still around. If you want to experience what coffee shops were like in the 60's & 70's check out Benishika. Nothing fancy about the place, but everything is simply good.
