Bakery & Table is a cafe/ restaurant situated along the shores of the beautiful Lake Ashi. The ground floor is the take-out bakery. There are varieties of bread and cakes, jams, dips, sauces, and drinks. There are also chairs and tables both inside and outside available. The first floor is the cafe, where one can order drinks such as coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. The restaurant is located on the second floor. Here you can order fancy sandwiches, crepes, beef dishes, and desserts.
All three floors offer a beautiful view of the lake. There is an elevator in the building, which is great for people with luggage.
I arrived at the lake around 2pm and decided to have lunch first then head over to the hotel. I thought I’d have coffee and a simple sandwich at the cafe. When I got to the cafe, it was packed. So I made my way up to the restaurant and there were plenty of seats available. I was able to get a counter seat facing the lake. The view was stunning!
I ordered the beef tendon and seasonal vegetable baked curry rice with cheese topping (¥ 2,600). It was my first time tasting Japanese curry in Japan and I have to say, this dish blew me away. It was absolutely scrumptious! The curry had a lovely aroma. It tastes kind of like an English stew with curry. It was creamy, buttery, cheesy and savory. I liked that this dish had a variety of vegetables, which is hard to come by in Japan. There was shitake mushroom, avocado, broccoli, carrot, capsicum, and The portion was quite big, I savored every bite.
