Located in the vicinity of the American Village in Chatan Town, Okinawa, is the Seaside Café Hanon.
This café specializes in pancakes and also offers sweets, meals, and adorable kid’s plates with delicious pancakes.
You can’t miss this cool little café with a large door painted blue, like the color of the Okinawan seas.


Step inside to find a lovely interior decorated with white and blue.
Further in the shop are terrace seats that offer a great view of the Chatan waters.

Café Hanon offers fluffy pancakes that are carefully prepared one by one upon order.
The pancakes here are made with an original blend of flour, and you can choose from two types: milky and delicious buttermilk, or whole wheat flour which allows you to really taste the ingredients.

If you’re looking for sweet pancakes, I recommend their French Pancakes.
The French Pancakes are first made as buttermilk pancakes, and then dipped in their special blend and grilled again.
They are more moist and soft compared to regular pancakes.
The pancakes themselves are not so sweet, so you can pour delicious maple butter sauce to your preference.

You can also choose toppings, so you can opt to choose a simple menu item and arrange it to your liking.
Their Fresh Cream is made with 100% raw milk and is rich but not heavy.
They also have homemade custard cream, as well as scrambled eggs and various other selections to create your very own breakfast plate.


For more savory pancakes, they offer many American style choices that you would expect in American Village.
Among the popular choices, a favorite by people from overseas are the Chili Beans.
The spicy chili beans with a crunchy sausage makes a great and satisfying addition to go with your pancakes.

At Café Hanon, you can also choose how many pancakes you’d like.
You can order a little extra and share with your friends and family.


Recommended for kids aged 10 and younger is the Kid’s Pancake Plate, with the pancake decorated like a mouse.
The kid’s plate has small pancakes, three kinds of homemade ice cream, and a cream puff made from scratch.
The plate is packed with yummy food that the kids will love.


They also have a great selection of beverages, too.
A favorite among the kids is the fresh banana juice!
The juice is simple, with just milk and bananas, but it’s tasty and delicious.

They also offer Cagliari, an Italian coffee brand that’s only available at a handful of businesses in Japan.

On the weekends, they’re open from 9am, so this is the perfect spot to start your day with a nice brunch.

Come by with your family and friends to enjoy fresh and delicious pancakes under the clear blue skies and overlooking the spectacular seas of Okinawa.
