Set in a small restaurant in the corner of a shopping district. The unusual eatery is only open after midnight, and its standard menu consists of just a single choice. However, the customers still come for the amusing chatter and the proprietor's willingness to cook any dish that they request. This drama depicts the lives of the restaurant's patrons, including a yakuza, an unsuccessful actor, a group of office ladies, a newspaper delivery boy, and a stripper. --Tokyograph
Cast & Credits
I recommend this drama to anyone who is looking for something different. There isn't anything supernatural, there aren't any ikemen or suspense, but it draws you into the hearts and minds of the characters. It perfectly communicates the loneliness that can sometimes find you when you live in a big city.
If only I could find a Midnight Cafe here....hehe.
The story revolves around a small eatery and the patrons who come in to enjoy a late night meal. Each episode is different but they are all life stories and are truly heartwarming. The characters weave together as the show goes on, and the recipes that conclude each of the episodes leaves me wanting to go in and eat there too!!
Don't miss this show!
