The café, called the Eorzea Café, was designed after a location in Final Fantasy XIV titled Carline Canopy, and has been constructed entirely with the mood and theme of the videogame in mind. These elements include giant stained glass windows, dark wood furniture and counters, and even life-sized statues of Moogles, floating bat-like mascots from the Final Fantasy series!

On top of serving unique food and drinks based on Final Fantasy XIV, like the Bahamut Giga Flare Curry or the Weight of the Land Titan Burger, the café features replicas of weapons from the game, and even has a series of computers set up so that customers can play the game while enjoying their food! In commemoration of the grand opening of the café, game director Naoki Yoshida was present at the event, meeting fans and serving lucky customers their orders.

Final Fantasy, which began in 1987 with the release of the original NES classic RPG, has since become a worldwide phenomenon, spanning countless sequels, spinoffs, remakes, anime adaptations, and more. Each game has its own standalone storyline, with no real connection between any of the numbered releases, allowing each game to start off with a new and interesting story. Fans of the franchise have since come to love the games’ soundtracks, characters, and unique plot lines alongside with the classic Final Fantasy turn-based battle gameplay.
