Hana Yori Dango Café (花より男子カフェ () ) was a promotional event for the phone app, Hana Yori Dango: F4 and First Kiss. It was held at Sweets Paradise in Shibuya, Tokyo starting on October 9, 2015. The event was originally going to end on January 10, 2016,[1] however it was popular enough to be extended to January 28.[2]

Sweets Paradise provided an all-you-can-eat menu as well as a collaboration menu, which were items inspired by the F4 characters. Those who ordered from the latter menu received either limited edition F4 stickers or coasters.[3] The F4-inspired menu was changed to feature new items on November 21, 2015.[4]
