This week Raku and I went to the cutest little Moroccan tea house in Omotesando called Dar Fatima. It's just off of Cat Street, the pedestrian shopping street that connects Omotesando to Shibuya. They have a little patio with shaded tables as well as a few tables inside. We spent the afternoon writing on the patio and enjoying the cooler weather.
They have a selection of teas as well as sandwiches and desserts. Raku had the iced mint tea and I had iced verveine tea. The mint was better, but it comes pre-sweetened while the others don't.
Later in the afternoon we took a dessert break and split their osusume, the sour cream lemon crepes. Honestly, they looked better than they tasted (seriously, look how pretty they are!) The crepes were more like spongy pancakes than thin crepes, and the lemon flavor was very mild, but they were a nice little pick me up for the afternoon.

Inside the shop they sell Moroccan glasses, pottery, and tea pots in the front room, and further back they sell textiles and crafts like brightly colored Moroccan slippers, bags, and rugs.
All afternoon it was very peaceful and quiet, a great place to relax in busy Omotesando. I'd definitely recommend it.
