Upon arriving in a fancy European styled town, Cocoa Hoto comes across a café called the Rabbit House whilst looking for her accommodation, disappointed to find it is not actually a café filled with rabbits. She does take interest in a curiously shaped rabbit named Tippy, who appears to make weird human-like sounds when she pets it. Cocoa soon learns that the café is in fact the residence where she will be staying, its waitress, Chino Kafū, being the owner’s granddaughter. Cocoa is soon put to work at the café in exchange for her accommodation, receiving training from another staff member, Rize Tedeza, whilst also trying her hand at latte art. Later that night, Cocoa and Chino spend the night getting to know each other, whilst Tippy, who can speak fluently, works alongside Chino’s father at the bar.
