From Aerandria Scans:

Takamura Uru takes her mother’s remarriage as an opportunity to strike out on her own and begin a part time job. Filled with the thought of “If only I could make someone happy…”, she begins working at Café Bohneur, a shop famous for cakes; but the employees, Ichirou-kun and Shindou-san, turn out to be incredibly unsociable. These two, though frightening at first glance, begin to change something inside of her. This is the start of a romance about Uru’s search for happiness.

Contains the Oneshot "Suitei Seinen Shoujo"

This is honestly one of my favorite mangas of all time. I would highly encourage everybody to read it! It's so uplifting and funny and it's a touching story all at the same time. I absolutely adore this, the characters are wonderful, the plot is really enjoyable and it's innocent and cute. I love this. Please read it!

I loved this manga. It had me laughing every chapter. It was possibly one of the best manga I've ever read.

But I wish the author would've included some love interests that actually stood a chance. Because it was pretty obvious who Uru was going to end up with.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
When Uru turned Sou down, and he cried, my heart broke into little pieces. Some little part of me was hoping she'd be with him. But If she doesn't want him, I will gladly take him for myself.

The ending was so rushed. I hated it. It's like she wrapped up this amazing book in less than a chapter. The time skip was done so wrong. You don't get a glimpse of their married life, or get to see their children. I was kinda ticked off. Because of that I had to knock a point off.

At the end of the day, It was a really good book. I would recommend it to any of my friends.

I loved it! Absolutely adored it!
It had a great plot, had great characters and it was frickin' hilarious!
I adored Uru, Ichirou and Shindou! Ichirou's kid brother was awesome too! Actually, let's just surmise that I loved the entire cast in the series.
...Maybe excluding the old woman,, who was she again? Shindou's grandmother or something...? I forgot.
Ignoring my praising words, I was, however, disappointed in the fact that the mangaka gave Uru unneeded (in my opinion) love interests. Ichirou was already fine as he was. Sou..alright, I could make an exception for Sou.
It was still good, though. Didn't bring it down, but the ending bits made me sigh in (mild) frustration.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I mean, did Ichirou really have to still be in love with her THREE years later?! Sure, unrequited love and all, but what ever happened to the first step of moving on?

After 5 volumes I realized that this was not my cup of tea. Yeah, in the beginning it's kind of cute, but it quickly turns out to follow a boring and cliche routine with every damn guy falling for Uru.

It kind of goes like this:
Uru does something clumsy and this leads to her meeting some kind of hot guy who thinks that she's weird, then he does something that makes Uru smile and - OH - time stops *every boy in the room stares at Uru with amazement* - and the new guy falls in love with her too. And as always, Shindou becomes jealous but won't say anything because he's oh-so-introvert.

This is truly (reverse) harem, and it's just too boring. It you're young and new to shoujo manga (i.e. hasn't stumbled upon too much cliche stuff yet) this might be for you. But for people who've read shoujo for a couple of years, this is nothing new and it surely will not surprise you in A N Y way.

The main character, Uru, is just about the cutest girl I've read about in any manga. She's just so sweet! I love all the side characters, like Kenshi, Arimouto, Sakura, Jirou, etc. etc. This is an amazing manga, and it does have quite a few twists in it! Just read the first chapter and you'll be hooked!

I must say this is one of my favorites. I like the characters because they're so innocent and strange. Uru is really cute! Yes, it is pretty cliche and I agree with other comments that at first I didn't expect much because the summary sounded boring but I gave it a chance and really liked it! The only thing I don't like is that their necks are freaking HUGE (well at least more noticeably at certain times) and its kind of scary. They look like alien giraffes sometimes, especially Shindou... well at least to me. Still love the story smile

A simple, sweet manga if you're looking for a nice cliche where everyone falls in love with the protagonist and everyone has one or two interesting character quirks to spice things up. It's like every other manga out there, but there's technically nothing wrong with it (besides everything being overdone) so I couldn't give it a score lower than a 7. The characters are likable...2D but likable. I got to the 7th volume before I gave up, so it is worth a look. Don't force yourself to finish it though.

Just finished this not long ago, and I must say the author has done a great job with the story line until the end. Not quite satisfied for me as it seemed quite rushed in my opinion. But other than that, everything else was just nicely paced out. I would rate this a 10 if the end was wrapped up better!

I have always loved this manga. It might be slow paced, but I love it. I always looked forward to reading it, The characters are all so lovable, even the bad ones :3

But I gotta say, the ending.... felt rushed and forced somehow.
Or maybe I'm just sad that it finally..ended.
