Pronto Cafe

With 182 outlets in Japan, Pronto Cafe is widely accessible, which makes it a favourite collab partner for promotional sales. For the months of September to November 2022, the cafe chain will be offering Spy x Family food items and merch. 

Of the numerous outlets, 9 will also have themed decor in stores for you to immerse yourself in the world of the anime series.

A variety of food choices for different times of the day

Pronto Cafe operates across 2 time frames – Cafe Time and Bar Time. While Cafe Time typically runs from 9am to 5.30pm and offers lighter food items with caffeinated drinks, Bar Time usually lasts from 5.30pm to 10pm and sells more-filling dishes alongside alcoholic beverages.

Cafe Time visitors can expect toast sets, cakes, salads, and spaghetti, with time-limited menu items that are refreshed every month. While awaiting the October-unique menu’s release, try out regular Cafe Time food items, which include Basil Chicken and Avocado Salad (¥825, ~USD5.70) and Asago Bread Set (¥484, ~USD3.35).

If you have the energy to dine out after work, partake in the Bar Time menu, which includes appetisers, spaghetti, pizzas, and fish and chips. There are also time-limited menu items that are refreshed every month.

To bide your time until the October-unique Bar Time menu drops, try their readily available Fish and Chips (¥748, ~USD5.17) and Shrimp and Avocado with Basil Sauce (¥880, ~USD6.08). Couple your food with soda or an alcoholic beverage for a more complete meal.

According to Pronto Cafe, Loid’s drink was designed to emulate his undercover nature, and changes colour when mixed with a lemon. We can almost hear Anya excitedly exclaim, Waku waku! at the magical transformation.

To spice things up, Pronto Cafe will be giving a random coaster of Loid Forger, Yor Forger, Anya Forger, or a family picture of the Forgers for every drink purchase. Bring some company for higher chances of getting the full collection.
