Le Café Doutor Ginza ル・カフェ・ドトール銀座

Dropped by Ginza for lunch and spotted a "luxurious" version of Doutor, my favourite coffee shop, just diagonally opposite Mitsukoshi at the Ginza 4-chome crossing, slightly renamed in a French-sounding manner - Le Café Doutor Ginza.

Sounds like..expensive!

Indeed it was. Their offerings do not differ much from a regular Doutor, just priced slightly more. It's one of Asia's high fashion district Ginza we're talking about here. My jaw dropped at the price of my all-time love - the Millecrepe. 500yen is still, however, pretty reasonable compared to nearby Cafes like Gucci Cafe.

Le Café Doutor Ginza has two levels of indoor seating and alfresco seating on the first. The alfresco area was briefly featured in one of the Crayon Shinchan episodes (おとしものですよぉ~だぞ).
