#MATSUNOSUKE (New Japanese treat spot)

This is a new Japanese cafe and pastry shop originally from Tokyo and Kyoto - now also in New York!

Only 5 weeks old in this Greenwich Village spot by the 8th Street crosstown bus stop, is this delicious heavenly find for one with sweet tooth.  Their specialties are worth trying!

They specialize in the light as a cloud pancake which I still have to try but can imagine.

I just had lunch so I opted for their blackout cake. Chocoholics out there would certainly appreciate this super moist, dark chocolate cake topped with lighter pieces of crumbled chocolate brownies or cake?! Decadent and yet less rich than it's usual Western counterpart.

 The place is a small neat spot in this wonderful uplifted block.
The pancakes are usually not flavored but if plain, comes with their version of homemade maple cream. Below are other pancake options.
There are several treats you can order in this sweet spot:
The menu is in the board:

Welcome to Japan!
