Japan’s Moomin Cafe has gone viral several times, not just because of the adorable Moomin-inspired food and drinks, but thanks to the giant plush characters sat at the table of single-diners, dubbed the ‘anti-lonliness Moomin’.

Now one of the popular themed eatery’s branches has moved to a different location, and received an overall revamp. This includes a take-out focused menu, making it easier for everyone to get a taste of the cute treats on offer. The new premises are based in Tokyo Skytree Town, Solamachi, so it’s an easy place for tourists to stop off while in the area.

The new menu was created with a focus on Northern European recipes to reflect the rotund troll’s Scandinavian origins, such as curry stew and lemon chicken with Finnish-style potato salad.

An odd-looking character from the Moomin world is the Hattifattener. This long friend has been recreated in the form of delicious bread rolls with sweet fillings for the takeout menu.

There’s plenty of Moomin-adorned drinks on the menu, which are especially suited for takeout. For one, there’s various healthy fruit smoothies.

And the cafe’s original tea latte, the adventurously flavoured ‘Royal Milk Tea Latte Blueberry Pancake Flavor’.

If you want to make your drink into a bubble tea, the cafe have their own take on tapioca pearls called ‘Hattifattener seeds’.

The new cafe’s set up really shows off Tove Jansson's original artwork to allow customers to jump right into the world of Moomin.

Of course, the cafe wouldn’t be complete without the famous giant Moomin plushies which sit at the tables and accompany lonely diners.
