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"

I love how this manga starts off completely pure and innocent, but has a slight dark side to the story. It was nice to read a manga that isn't always happy. I kinda wished that there was a little more darkness to it though to bring a little more realism.

Every single character is somehow related to one another, as well the events that occurred in the manga. It makes the story really predictable.. so that was a turn off for me.

The one thing I did not like..were the romantic developments.. They were kind of awkward and a little choppy, especially Shindou and Uru's. It felt like it was just missing a few monologues/dialogues. Actually some parts of the story were a bit awkward, but it's still pretty good. After a couple of chapters, it didn't really have a main plot, it just introduced more characters with mini stories. Then it gradually started having a plot after some character appearances since they all have a connection to one another. It all started to make sense
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and everything was resolved, but the last chapter was disappointing..especially since you don't get to see Shindou's face at all. -_____-" And the fact that Ichirou, Kenshi, Sou, and Tsukishiro are all still stuck in a one sided love after 3 years is depressing! You'd think at least two of them would move on. We also never got to see more about the Manager and his life, is it supposed to stay as a mystery forever? GAH! THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS LEFT UNKNOWN. /sobs
The ending was rushed, and left me wanting more..

Overall, I love this story and my rating is a bit bias. I also really love how Matsuzuki drew their expressions though, it's so adorably funny. :3

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 still can't believe that it's actually over.
Mind you, when I say this I'm only half meaning it in terms of "It was so good that I didnt want it to end!"

Because yeah, I didnt want it to end. But I guess the mangaka did. The conclusion of the manga was very rushed, to the point where the things occurring were not even allowed to settle in before we were thrown into something else. Some things were never even settled in the first place but were conveniently forgotten as the story neared it's end. Despite this, I really did like this manga. It even had my most despised type of ending,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Talk about cliche. The guy has to go abroad. Girl says she'll wait for him. Horribly transitioned time skip. Guy appears when girl is thinking about him. Guy and girl hug/kiss/run towards one another. End.
But I decided that this was a special case since I liked it enough. It's definitely something I'd recommend to read.

Well i thought people were exaggerating about Uru, but it's turns out she is quite cute, in a non annoying way. I can actually see why the guys would be falling for her. Her most charming feature is her strength, she's no damsel in distress, if anything she's the knight who comes to the rescue.LOL

I like the bit of humor that zips into the chapters, along with the glimpses about their family background and such. It's impressive that the series stayed good throughout so many volumes! My favorite part was how there was an underlying mystery or secret, where we got certain clues in every volume, but not knowing everything 100% until towards the end.

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?

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!

The story was super cute and light and fluffy
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
in the beginning
and funny and everything else. I loved every character. I <3 uru. She's super cute that at some point, I found myself hating her for being too cute (bitter much?). I <3 Ichirou too. Anyway, why didn't I give it a perfect rating? That's because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
this manga had me so depressed when everything got dark and all the secrets were revealed. I felt so sad for uru. T.T
. I fell in love with Abekawa Sou <3. He's so kawaii :3 I felt so bad for him (even though readers could probably guess from the start he's not gonna be the lead male :/ ) Oh well, if uru won't have him, I'll take him anytime. XD The only thing I didn't like in this manga is how everyone will forever love uru. Literally. Don't they deserve someone else? I understand how they'd give up everything for the girl they love (that's for you Ichirou!) but that's just too sad knowing that it'll always be a one-side love. sad (((((((((

Don't get me wrong though, this manga is AWESOME \m/. It'll get you ROTFL especially Ichirou (Banzai! Spin! And pose!).

Note: i don't recommend this those who get too attached to the guy who will never be the lead male. It's heartbreaking. Srsly.

The story lagged for a while and the ending was rushed but I spent such good times reading this manga, it was often funny, at times hilarious and always sweet.

The characters are total weirdos far from the clichés and all the more likable and personable for it: Uru has freaky strength and reassures people who point out that she's sitting with her legs wide open while wearing a skirt that "it's ok, she's wearing underwear", Shindou is hot-headed and unsociable and really likes to hit people, and Ichirou is an expressionless guy who falls asleep when he's hungry and can only be woken up by having food shoved in his mouth.

I'm not usually one for fluff but this was really adorable, most of the recurring gags still had me laughing (literally out loud!) even after the umpteenth time the sense of timing was that good, and the chibi faces were simply excellent.

The multiplication of love interests was a bit too much and unnecessary
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
especially concerning Ichirou, his character was already fleshed out and interesting he didn't need to be the 100th guy inexplicably in love with Uru, especially as he ended up being reduced to only that by the end (I'll also never get over his new haircut, his ruffled hair looked so great ^^')
just like the weird ~drama in the end.
That what little plot there was was simplistic and focused on a few characters + extras was what made the manga's charm, too bad the author lost sight of that towards the end to release more volumes.

Still, it's the kind of lighthearted, feel-good read that'll lift your spirits, make you smile and laugh, your very own Café Bonheur smile

If I had to pick something about this manga that makes it stand out, I'd say it's the humor. I laughed so many times. Somehow Uru's expressions never get old. haha Aside from that, it's a pretty standard reverse harem as others have said, but it's done well in that all the characters who fall in love with her are likable. I was slightly disappointed that it's obvious who she'll be with from about page one since I liked the other characters more. *cough* Sou *cough*

Also, I'm not sure if it got canceled or the author just got sick of things and wanted to end it, but the ending was really rushed, It felt like, how many loose ends can I tie up in three chapters (which is surprisingly a lot) sort of deal. It was mostly satisfying, but could have been a lot better as somethings were still left unsolved and it just felt extremely rushed.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I really wanted to hear about the manager! For a while it seemed like we'd get to know eventually, and then it was forgotten. Also the whole thing with Sakuraba being the father felt like it came out of left field. And the two slowest people ever realized their feelings and confessed in the blink of an eye, and not even a kiss!

Also, somewhere in the middle the author decides to introduce like 10 side characters in consecutive chapters and it gets kind of boring and confusing since some of them look kind of similar. I almost stopped there, but just keep going! It gets really good again after that! All in all, I'd say this is very good for what it is. Definitely read it if you want a good laugh!
