This shop is from Hawaii. Although Japanese people draw the rainbow with 7 colors, people in Hawaii do so in 6 colors. So this shop’s logo is with only 6 colors. They have pancakes that not only female but also male can enjoy. The reason is their well-balanced menu from sweet pancakes to meal-like pancakes. They also have limited pancakes of the seasons. For example, you can eat pumpkin pancake in autumn. Sometimes they even collaborate with the neighbor shops, and so you can get limited special pancakes then!
