There is a nice bakery cafe, called Epiciel at Shimizu station. I went to Shimizu yesterday and I decided to have lunch there.
I have been there many times before and there is a good selection of bread and pastry, and some of the products are original. I ordered a few things including a cinnamon roll. It was not like the soft bread cinnamon roll that is in many bakeries, but this one was like a thick sponge bread, and it was really delicious.
But there is one bad thing, one really bad thing, about this bakery cafe: smoking is allowed. I have had a bad experience here before.
Yesterday there were about 12 customers in the cafe and I was lucky, no-one was smoking. But just as I was finishing a man walked in and took an ashtray and put it on his table, a smoker. I could see the other customers look at him, there were six elderly people and a mother with two young children. Immediately they all started to leave.
