products

hard to believe someone could build an entire shop around cupie dolls. is this thing more than just a mascot for a brand of japanese mayonnaise? and yet that's almost all they seem to sell. other kooky crap includes about 50 different varieties of chocolate cigarettes [lighter included].

service

a bit prickly... seemed to be rocking out a bit to the japanese punk rock she was playing on the stereo.

interior

old weathered wooden floorboards and walls covered in multi-color plastic cupie dolls [yes, cupie dolls.]

ambience
