You will be amazed by the artistic work and taste brought to every pastry here. Pablo now has more than 30 stores located in Japan and six stores overseas.
Japanese-style cheesecake is known as “rare cheesecake.” This is slightly different to the New York-style. The rare cheesecake is composed of melted cheese on top of the regular cheesecake, maintaining the sweet taste. The smoothness of this coating forms a golden brown top layer of the cake, which is placed on top of a tart.
Besides the Japanese-style cheesecake, you can find New York-style cheesecakes with caramel topping at Pablo. They usually offer limited time menus to keep customers coming back for something new. There’s mini cheese tart with chocolate and baked marshmallow in February, and then there’s the cheesecake with a mixture of fruits on top in the summer. Kiwis, raspberries, and blueberries over a layer of orange marmalade and custard cream do make a good combination, don’t you think? In autumn, you can try their seasonal cinnamon apple cheesecake, which is half-apple pie and half-New York-style cheesecake.
There are 6 Pablo shops in Tokyo, with the largest being in Omotesando. They sell not only cheesecakes, but also the delightful “Pablo mini.” These are cheese tarts that fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. They come in many different flavors, including “rich and creamy chocolate,” “matcha green tea,” and other seasonal flavors.
If these tasty cheesecakes aren’t enough, don’t worry. There are other menu items for you to choose from. There are cheese pudding, cream cheese and chocolate fondue, soft-serve ice cream, sandwiches, and Pablo’s original drinks. After ordering, you can enjoy your dessert at the premium café space located on the second floor of the shop.
Want more than just the memory of how your cheesecake tasted? You can find Pablo t-shirts and tote bags at the larger Pablo shops.
You can also find other Pablo shops at Shinjuku, Tachikawa, two shops at Akihabara and Kita-Senju (the mini-cheese tarts are only available here). But honestly? Any Pablo’s location is fantastic! Why not grab a cup of hot milk chocolate or a whole cake to share with friends?
At most shops, you can find cheese shortcake cookies, or sable le cheese” and cheesecake mille-feuille. You may find limited flavors sold at each particular city. In some shops at Tokyo, you can buy cheese-honey sable cookie. You can find the cheese-sweet potato sable at Okinawa stores. These sure make excellent souvenirs for your family and friends!
If you don’t want to line up during peak hours, you can have Pablo cheesecakes and delivered to your hotel! You can order their products from Amazon Japan and Rakuten.
If you’re lucky, you might find Pablo’s ice cream and cheese tarts at irregular intervals in various convenience stores. All in all, be sure to try these limited products if you find them at convenience stores during your stay in Japan!
