If you are living in Japan, most coffee shops at Tokai District offer a morning service served in different variations. You can eat until you are full and what you have to pay is only the price of the coffee during the limited time.
Japanese Traditional Breakfast
Rice is the staple food of the Japanese. Because of this, Japanese eat rice almost every meal. Their traditional breakfast consists of boiled rice, natto (fermented soybeans), tsukemono or pickled vegetables, broiled fish, nori ( dried seaweed), fresh egg, stewed vegetables and miso soup.
But due to the existence of coffee shops, busy people prefer to take their breakfast at coffee shops that offer what so called “morning service”
Morning Service is a special menu or service that is available in the morning at a limited time. It Is very popular because it is sold at a reasonable price. It consists of boiled eggs, toasted bread with butter or jam and a cup of coffee or tea. The price ranges from ?350~?500, depending on the food served in addition to coffee or tea. Some coffee shops aside from food mentioned above, serve also salads, sweets, soups and so on. Others serve the traditional breakfast with coffee.
The morning service is usually from 7:00 am~11:00 am.
People who do not know about this service are surprised when they are given additional food with the coffee that they ordered. Some refuse to take it because they think that they are going to pay extra for the additional food that they did not order.
At the coffee shop
Most people like working couples, business bachelors, old people and others take their breakfast at coffee shops to take advantage of the morning service. It's very convenient to have breakfast at coffee shops before going to work since you don't need to spend extra time to cook your breakfast. What is important is that it's cheaper to take the morning service than cook, especially if you are living alone. You can eat until you are full and what you have to pay is only the price of the coffee during the limited time.
Going to coffee shops in the morning had become a habit of old people who live alone. The place serves as their social gathering while taking the affordable morning service.
They share stories and information on different aspects of life. Some stay there as long as there are other people they can talk with. Other than that, there are newspapers, magazines and comics that they can read. Other coffee shops also have mahjong game devices where some idle people play to kill their time.
Due to the competition among coffee shops, everybody want to build a good reputation by offering peculiar services to customers. For this reason, almost all coffee shops make their trademarks with the morning service they offer their customers.
If you happen to visit Japan, don't miss to try morning services at coffee shops. I'm sure you will enjoy it.
