Akihabara is known for giant technology stores and anime good shops, not for delicious sweets. However, there are two crape stores Smiley Crepe and café EURO. Both of them are less than 10 minutes from JR Akihabara station.
Smiley is located just 3 minutes from Electric Exit of JR Akihabara station and Suehirocho station of Tokyo Ginza Line. It is a small, pink store on the first floor of the popular discount store Don Quijote.
Smiley’s crapes are made without water, using only milk and butter, to achieve rich and soft texture.
It is foreigner friendly with clear English menu.
Although there is no place to sit inside, there are benches in the vicinity of the store where you can enjoy your crapes without need to rush.

Café EURO is 7 minute-walk from Electric Exit of Akihabara station. It has a very modern look with crape samples laid out outside. Since it is not only a crape store, you can get ice cream or a light meal, such as a hamburger.
They have classics like crapes with chocolate and bananas and with strawberry sause, but also more adventurous tastes. There are Japanese style crapes with black sugar powder and azuki, and salty ones with ham and cheese, and ham and eggs.
The price range is ¥400~450.
