Reception[edit]

Snow Wildsmith described the manga as "enjoyable, but not all that memorable", but noted that the stereotypically "blatantly gay" chef could offend some readers.[4] Leroy Douresseaux felt the manga series had potential, but that the first volume was not "anything really special".[5] Connie C. described the manga as being "a cross between Antique Bakery and Princess Princess".[6] Matthew Warner felt it was fun to see the characters switch on their "butler-mode".[7]
