【Kamiyacho】Bite into a thick, hearty ham and pork cutlet sandwich at Pelican Cafe Azabudai Hills 🍖(ペリカンカフェ 麻布台ヒルズ店).

I went to Pelican Cafe Azabudai Hills (ペリカンカフェ 麻布台ヒルズ店) after hearing about a cafe that serves sandwiches made with bread from Pelican, a famous bakery in the Azabudai area.

Visit the restaurant

It is located on the first floor of Azabudai Hills Tower Plaza, a 10-15 minute walk inside Azabudai Hills from Kamiyacho Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line. We arrived at 8:45, which is the opening time plus 15 minutes. At the time of arrival, there was only one customer, and we were able to enter the restaurant without any problem.

This is the menu that was offered that day. It was an exclusive morning set.

From opening until 11:00 a.m., takeout sandwiches in the showcase can be eaten in the restaurant, but there were no sandwiches in the showcase when we visited. However, there were no sandwiches in the showcase at the time of my visit.

Actual meal

Unable to choose, I asked the waitress, “Which one is the best?” He replied, “The most popular one is the ham and pork cutlet sandwich, and the one that is often served is the grilled toast set.

Based on the clerk's comments, I had the following this time.

  • Ham and pork cutlet sandwich: 1,100 yen
  • Original blend tea: 550 yen

Detailed impressions are below.

  • Ham cutlet sandwich: 1,100 yen

    • Thick ham with sauce is sandwiched between two pieces of bread. The picture may not look like much, but the volume is ample and satisfying enough. It may be a little oily and boring if served by itself. I thought this menu is supposed to be served with a drink. Of course, it was delicious.
  • Original blend tea: 550 yen

    • It is a slightly bitter Darjeeling tea (I think). It is a little bitter Darjeeling tea (I think), but it goes great with the ham and cutlet sandwich, completely washing away the greasiness and refreshing and resetting the palate. Thanks to this, I was able to finish the ham and pork cutlet sandwich without getting bored until the end.



The hearty sandwich filled me up in the morning. According to the website, the grand menu, which is available after 11:00 a.m., includes the “Fried Shrimp Sandwich” and “Grilled Toast with 3 Dips,” which are store specials, and I am very curious about them.
I think it would be fun to go there for lunch.


It took us a while to arrive because Azabudai Hills is surprisingly large and there is a three-dimensional movement from the station to the restaurant. When visiting with several people, it is better to meet at Kamiyacho Station.
