Cinnamoroll Cafe: Why is it So Special?

Sanrio’s cutest boy has become so popular and loved that he has the Cinnamoroll cafe! If your dream has been to visit Cinnamoroll and have some delicious snacks with him, this is a dream come true!

Cinnamoroll, a little puppy dog with long ears, is one of Sanrio’s most popular characters, and for good reason: he’s so cute! Soft and fluffy with his happy little heart cheeks, Cinnamoroll is the definition of cuteness.

Why is Cinnamoroll so popular?

Cinnamoroll is Sanrio’s best boy. Having debuted in 2002, he was recently announced as Sanrio’s most famous character from 2020-2023. How cool is that? Cinnamoroll’s story is a large part of what makes him so cute and lovable.

Born on a cloud high up in the sky, Cinnamoroll began to fly with his large ears. When he landed near a café, the owner noticed him and quickly made him the café’s mascot. As the café sold cinnamon rolls and the Cinnamoroll’s tail resembled a cinnamon roll, it was a match made in heaven. 

As a puppy, Cinnamoroll is shy but lovable and always willing to help those in need. He’s an adorable dog who loves freshly baked cinnamon rolls (his favorite hobby is eating!) and going on adventures with his friends.

Cinnamoroll is famous because his soft and cute looks make him popular with young children and adults. There’s nothing wrong with giving a cute dog all the love he deserves, and Cinnamoroll deserves all the love in the world!

Because he’s so popular, the adorable white puppy has plushies, cartoons, and even a manga! Now that we’ve given an overview of Cinnamoroll as a character let’s check out his amazing cafe in the heart of Tokyo!

What do they serve at the Cinnamoroll Cafe?

In a café inspired by a character who loves cinnamon rolls, the surprise is that they don’t serve them. Instead, Cinnamoroll Cafe offers three signature dishes: the Flying Clouds Cinnamoroll Burger, the Hot and Rich Chocolate, and the Cutie Cutie Special Cinnamoroll Blue Soda. The burger features a meat patty with lettuce and tomatoes on a fluffy bun shaped like Cinnamoroll’s head.

Despite the oddity of biting into his face, it’s quite tasty. The hot chocolate is well-made with a marshmallow that looks like his butt sticking out. The blue soda comes with a lemon slice and a large floof of cotton candy shaped like Cinnamoroll’s face. Although, strangely, they don’t serve cinnamon rolls, the food is delicious and worth trying. You’ll just have to get a cinnamon roll elsewhere, though.

How do I get to the Cinnamoroll Cafe?

To get to the Cinnamoroll Cafe in Shinjuku, Tokyo, you can head to the Shinjuku Marui Annex, located at 3-1-26 Shinjuku, Shinjuku. The cafe is on the first floor of the building. The nearest station is Shinjuku-Sanchome Station, serviced by the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi, Fukutoshin, and Shinjuku Lines!

The café is a short walk from a train station and less than half a mile from Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. Its close location to a train station makes it very accessible and easy for visitors to travel to. Not to mention, since it’s close to the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, it is a great place to grab a snack before or after a day of walking in the garden. For those unfamiliar with Tokyo, its trains are easy to use and make traveling safe and convenient.

Why should I go there?

Pop-up cafes offer fun and unique experiences catered specifically to the characters or shows they are based on. However, the nature of pop-up cafes means they don’t last forever and often close shop soon after they open. Taking the time to visit one is a must for fans if they don’t want to risk missing out on what they have to offer before it’s too late.

For Sanrio fans, Cinnamoroll Café is the perfect place to visit if you love Cinnamoroll. It’s adorable, has three distinct and delicious foods you can eat, and is very convenient to travel to. It isn’t every day that your favorite character gets their café, let alone a café that serves burgers and hot chocolate. Any fan of Cinnamoroll needs to make a day of traveling to the café for a filling lunch.
