“Nicolai Bergmann Nomu” flower cafe in Minami-Aoyama (Tokyo) is an oasis in the city
Tired of the increased time spent at home and the gloomy skies of the rainy season? Perhaps you’d like to unwind at a cafe where you can also bask in the surrounding flowers, all while soaking up energy from summery flora and fresh, vibrant food!
Nicolai Bergmann Nomu is located in Minami-Aoyama, just a two-minute walk from Omotesando Station. It is a cafe produced by Nicolai Bergmann, a flower artist from Denmark.
Even those who have never heard of Nicolai Bergmann may be familiar with this flower arrangement.
The cafe occupies a spacious area adjacent to a flower shop and is decorated with brightly hued flowers.
One notable feature is the interior design that changes with the seasons. This time of year, the cafe exudes a natural atmosphere lush with wood and greenery.
The cafe interior is made up of meticulously selected Scandinavian designs.
The table arrangement also reflects the transition of the seasons, so there is a new discovery at every visit. Currently, the tables are decorated with vividly colored balls and plants for a fresh look perfect for the summer. Just feasting your eyes on the arrangement will lift your spirits.
After luxuriating in the sophisticated space, it is time to savor the cafe’s original menu centered around dishes from Nicolai Bergmann’s home country of Denmark.
The traditional Danish dessert “Dream Cake” serves up a bite of nostalgia along with its coconut and caramel flavors. The popular “Banana Cake” also contains generous portions of the tropical fruit. The dessert displays are as splendid as the flower shop, and they are filled with food that is indulging to eat and look at.
Highly popular among the dishes is the open-faced Danish sandwich “Smørrebrød.”
“Smørrebrød” means “buttered bread” in Danish.
It is a traditional Danish dish that comes with fresh fish, meat, and vegetables on a thin slice of rye bread. It is a staple of households in Denmark that is commonly eaten for lunch or as a light meal.
Beautiful to look at and delicious, Nicolai Bergmann Nomu’s smørrebrød almost seems like a shame to actually eat it. The mainly organic ingredients are stacked on top of each other in vibrant layers. It is a health-conscious dish that can be devoured guilt-free.
・SALMON & EGG 1,100 yen (plus tax) (left in photo)
The juxtaposition of the mildly-salted smoked salmon and the textured rye bread is perfect. It is a classic smørrebrød that is both healthy and satisfying.
・AVOCADO 900 yen (plus tax) (right in photo)
This voluminous, avocado-topped smørrebrød is accented with the texture of orange peels. The combined consistency of the ingredients is another fun element of this dish.
・FRESHLY SQUEEZED JUICE FLOWER POWER 1,100 yen (plus tax) (left in photo)
A refreshing aroma of elderflowers will delight your sense of smell over a base flavor of tart strawberries. It is a freshly squeezed juice that is unique to Nicolai Bergmann Nomu.
・FRUIT TART 1,100 yen (plus tax) (right in photo)
Weightier than can be imagined from its delicate appearance, you will be impressed by the generous fruit toppings and moist, rich tart!

The spacious, open cafe offers a different view depending on where you are seated, so finding your favorite spot is another way to enjoy your visit.
