Have you ever been to Almond Roppongi?

I must have met people out front of the Roppongi Crossing Almond Cafe dozens of times during my time in Tokyo. That doesn't sound like much (especially since I've lived in the Tokyo area for almost 9-years), but I really don't like the Roppongi nightlife and usually avoid passing through...

Anyway, when I moved back to Japan, I noticed that the Almond Cafe in Roppongi had closed. I shed a tear momentarily, and realized that I never ever ate there. It was just a convenient meeting spot and landmark.

Recently, I was surprised by it's return.  It reopened in December 2010..  It's still pink, the awnings are gone, and it's in a new building.
