Below is an introduction to the food and drink items available on the pop-up cafe’s menu. All prices include tax.
Pooh | Honeypot deli plate – 1,639 yen
Any fan of Winnie-the-Pooh knows how much the titular character loves honey, or as he likes to spell it “hunny”. Pooh Bear will go to great lengths to acquire his favourite snack, often “borrowing” it from his friends, but if it's not available he will even attempt to take it directly from the bees, which more often than not ends with trouble.
This Honeypot deli plate is inspired by the bear’s love of honey, and consists of tofu meatballs, yoghurt, edamame and corn salad served up in containers that resemble the honey pots featured in the film.
Piglet | A whirlpool bagel sandwich – 1,859 yen
“Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day” documents a time when the Hundred Acre Wood (where Pooh and his friends live) is hit by a storm. At the beginning of the film a great flood threatens Piglet and Pooh, who end up being washed away by the immense power of the water.
This blue bagel filled with avocado and mixed beans takes inspiration from the flood scene, with the coloured ring resembling both Piglet’s signature scarf and a whirlpool that forms around his make-shift raft. Pushed into the dough is a food pick featuring a frightened Piglet as he is washed away on top of his kitchen chair.
