Cheese Cheers Cafe Hibiya

Dishes for cheese lovers, by cheese lovers

If you've ever visited a restaurant and thought to yourself "why aren't there more cheese-based dishes on the menu?", then a great place to check out is Cheese Cheers Cafe. The chain has several branches in Japan, including one within just a few minutes on foot from Hibiya Station in Tokyo.

The concept of the restaurant was to create dishes for cheese lovers, by cheese lovers, and the menu definitely delivers on that. Some of the highlights include a creamy, cheesy risotto, a Bolognese pasta topped with a tower of Bella Lodi (a type of Italian hard cheese), various pizzas including a four cheese variety, and a carbonara made with Mimolette (a cheese that originates from Lille in France). There are also a number of meat dishes that come topped with cheese, including the Japanese staple of hamburger steak.

Even the desserts here take on a cheese theme, and one of the most popular items is the CCC cheesecake – it's designed to look just like a cartoonish wedge of cheese, which you can see in the photo at the top of the article.

The Hibiya Cheese Cheers Cafe location seats 80 people, and while reservations are not required, they are recommended if you plan to visit with a larger group. Bookings can be made online by visiting the official restaurant website.

Getting there

Cheese Cheers Cafe Hibiya is located just three minutes on foot from Hibiya Station, which is served by the Tokyo Metro's Chiyoda and Hibiya lines, plus the Toei Subway's Mita Line. For those who opt to drive, nearby paid parking lots are available at Tokyo Midtown Hibiya or Hibiya Park.

For those not in Tokyo, other store locations are based in Hakodate (Hokkaido), Moriya (Ibaraki), and Kyoto. More information on those branches can be found on the Cheese Cheers Cafe website.
