Final Fantasy XIV Cafe opened in Akihabara

Final Fantasy Cafe
Square Enix
and Pasela Resorts, which sets up and runs leisure facilities, jointly opened a Final Fantasy XIV concept cafe - Final Fantasy Eorzea Cafe - in Akiharabara, Tokyo yesterday.

The Final Fantasy Eorzea Cafe is a replica of the Carline Canopy tavern in the town of Gridania as it appeared in FFXIV.

Dishes and drinks on the menu are made based on dishes or characters from FFXIV, for example, Marmot Steak, Bahamut's Giga Flare Curry, Mini Honey Toast Moglie, Alchemist's Craft Recipt Elixir and so on. Moglie welcomes visitors at the entrance.

Also, there are PCs for FFXIV that visitors can use for playing the game.

It opens at 11:30 A.M. and closes at 10 P.M., and it doesn't accept reservations.

Also, loitering won't work - you can only stay a limited time of 2 hours once you get a seat.
