The Cutest Cupcake Store in Kichijoji

Here it is. The cutest little cupcake store in Kichijoji. As you can see from their window display, they do not carry a wide variety of sweets but each one is perfect. I bought Nama (= fresh) Caramel cakes for my sweeties. The slightly retro decor (antiqued table, kettle shaped pendant lights fixtures and a full-height chest of drawers made of blond wood) is the perfect backdrop without crossing over to the kitsch. Called Momen (tel. 0422 21 2508), the shop is just a hop, skip and a jump from Kichijoji Station.


  1. OK. You went to Kichijoji without me. This is ok because I was so sick today and the thought of cupcakes would have done me in. But let's go together again k?

  2. I came across your site yesterday because I was looking for the address of Momen, and I love what I've read so far! (Cupcakes, yarn stores, cool things in Kichijoji? This is totally a blog I'd love), and as I was reading it, my boyfriend came up behind me and said, "Oh, Naomi Pollock? She's a really well known and well regarded writer about architecture." I think your site just became our favorite blog!

  3. Hi Devin:
    Thanks for your comment. It definitely made my day! I am glad that you like my blog.
