Bandai Open Gundam Café In Akiba

By Ishaan . April 17, 2010 . 9:30am


On April 24th, Bandai are opening a “Gundam Official Café” in Akihabara, aka “electric town.” The café will serve as a Gundam information centre and hopes to appeal to both longtime fans of the franchise as well as newcomers to the Gundam craze.


The Gundam Official Café is able to seat 60 people and will offer “Gundam-inspired menus,” which will be revealed soon. The café’s specialty, however, will be a coffee blend using South American coffee beans, named “Jaburo Coffee.” Jaburo was the headquarters of the Earth Federal Forces during and after the One Year War in Mobile Suit Gundam.

    They stole my idea :(. No idea why but atleast 10 years ago I thought about Mobile Suit Gundam coffee.

      I had this idea 5min after i read this article. Just my idea was an actual Gundam as café.
      With girls in Gundam Costumes (real gundam costumes that look identical to a gundam!) in aprons.

    That looks “Totally Wicked”. Should be up and running well before Gundam 00 movie comes out. Sweet.
