Good for Vegans, Great for Everyone!

Rect Sand Cafe is a great find. Look for a storefront woody bench with an olive tree. Located on a quiet street just north of Koenji’s Etoile Dori shopping street, this vegan cafe offers wholesome and delicious foods focusing on enzyme brown rice. Their specialty is the enzyme brown rice “rectangle sandwich” plate which they are named after, as well as vegan curry with side salad. Meals like these are sure to make you feel better and healthier.

The chef prepares everything from scratch and they are refreshing and tasty. Families with children are welcome and there is a special little corner for families. Picture books, toys and kids menu are available.

Soy milk tea (hot or cold) using organic Assam tea leaves is amazingly tasty. The “Komatsuna” leafy greens smoothie has no bitter taste and is absolutely worth trying! Enzyme brown rice balls are also great take-out food, and are available in many varieties. Check out vegan sweets such as cookies, muffins, and raw energy balls with raisins, which are great to nosh on during a busy day of vintage clothes shopping or rocking out in Koenji!
