Tokyo Dessert Buffets

If you’re the type that is all about putting cake before casserole and satisfying your sweet tooth to the point that would make your dentist’s hair stand on end, then you’ll want to read on further as we present the best places in Tokyo to check out All-you-can-eat sweets, treats, and other sugar-infused eats.

Cafe Ron Ron

Japan is the country that invented the conveyor belt sushi restaurant, so it’s completely plausible that a Tokyo enterprising restauranteur would use the same system to cart out confections to waiting guests. Cafe Ron Ron operates its “sweets-go-round” every day without fail. Everything from crepes, shortcakes, and tarts to ice cream and seasonal treats float by on the belt, and all you have to do is pick and eat whatever you like within 40 minutes. You’ll also get a free drink bottle (also filling with your favorite drink) to take home to commemorate your visit.

Marble Lounge

Located in the Hilton Hotel’s massive west Shinjuku complex, this buffet regularly collects accolades on its regular food, including its breakfast and brunch selections. But the dessert section deserves its mention due to its themes that change throughout the year. During the holidays, for example, you can enjoy their “Alice’s Christmas Tea Party” complete with a miniature Alice hiding somewhere amongst the cakes and pastries on the bar.
