Description: If you like bagels, this is the place to go. I tend to go here for Sunday brunch. If you go there for lunch, you can get their lunch special (A Lunch: sandwich of the day, salad, dessert and soup for 820 yen or B Lunch: 2 different sandwich halves, fries and soup for 980 yen). To me, that seems like a pretty good deal. If you don’t speak Japanese, this kind of “fast food” type place where you order and pay at the counter (self-service), is really easy and quick. So, I recommend this place if you are on a budget or “on the go.” You can find Junoesque Bagel at several locations around Tokyo, but this location was where it all started. It first opened up for business in 1998 and has been in operation (and expanding ever since). It’s open from 10am till 10pm. Those hours don’t exactly make it a good breakfast spot, but for brunch, lunch, snack or if you want to order to go and eat outside under the cherry trees (where the benches are on the South side of the

Junoesque makes good bagels (you can even find them in upscale supermarkets in Tokyo) and this place (Junoesque Bagel Cafe Jiyugaoka) was where it all started. This is "ground zero" for this business which has now spread to other parts of Tokyo.

I'm a fan of fast food (everybody has those times when they need to eat on the run), but I'm not a fan of fat food (just because it's fast does that mean it absolutely has to be bad for you?) So that's what I like about the bagel option---when done right, a bagel sandwich can give you energy, nutrition taste good and not clog your arteries just because you want to eat on the run. Eat inside or (if the weather is nice) order "to go" and then walk over to the South Exit of the station and walk one block directly from the South exit (don't turn left or right) and you will find a cherry-tree lined street with LOTS of benches (there are benches all up and down this entire street so keep walking until you find a free one).

This Junoesque Bagel Cafe is the only one which serves the "kids plate" which is a bagel, salad, sausage, soup, fries and a little dessert. So, definitely bring the kids.

I like their "set menus" here. You can get a "Sandwich set" (your choice of bagel sandwich (such as "bagel taco sandwich" or "mozzarella cheese & chicken" or "avocado and shrimp") and they also give you salad and french fries to go with all for one price. They have other "set menus" as well.

IF YOU ARE VEGETARIAN, give the "Salad Set" a try by ordering the "Grilled Seasonal Vegetable With Balsamico sauce" salad (the only non-meat salad choice). Each "salad set comes with your choice of bagel and cream cheese (you can just tell them "no cream cheese" if you don't want the cream cheese that comes with it).

This place is open from 10:00 to 22:00. So, although I can't recommend this as a breakfast spot (for me they have to open a lot earlier than 10am to be considered a breakfast option), I like this place for brunch or a snack.
