Restaurants are a kind of shop present in Persona 2: Innocent Sin and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. By paying a small amount of money, any character can buy one of the dishes or drinks served there and get a temporary stat increase. All restaurants offer another service like selling weapons or being the place where a Rumormonger hangs out.

At first, Trish won't sell ice cream. The player must first obtain a rumor about Trish selling ice creams from Demon Rumormonger Nekomata, located at the Kuzunoha Detective Agency, by donating 100,000 yen to the cat statue. Additionally, later in the story Nekomata will have another rumor available that claims she's reformed her greedy ways...sort of. The rumor has two possible randomly generated outcomes which both effect the cost of ice cream by either lowering her prices, or raising them, but adding "Lucky Ice Cream" and "North Light Vanilla" to her inventory.

"What do the regulars come here for? Her amusing tales? ...Or the special menu? No...that's nonsense."
Found in Kameya Alley on the Hirasaka district. It's known as "Ramen Shiraishi" in Innocent Sin and serves a variety of ramen noodles, but changes to an Izakaya-style bar in Eternal Punishment which sells Japanese snacks and sake.
The owner is referred to as the "Shiraishi Lady". Although it may not have been her true backstory, rumors in both games make her become a former secret agent that sells weapons in her store. She also has a dream of publishing an autobiography of herself which can be realized through rumors in Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. Gradually throughout the game she tells a myriad of grandiose stories about her bizarre past including:
- Reveals her last job as a spy was to investigate the presidents secret affair. However, she had personal problems during the investigation due to rumours of her being in a relationship with the president. In the end she admits being a spy was a hassle and not worth the trouble.
- Involved in the Russian revolution in the first communist uprising. She claims that there was feature of her venture on a pamphlet at the Ho Tung Harvard university.
- Ex-idol and was called the 21st century’s last idol or the nationalist knockout. She says she misses the glory days.
- Had a brief career as a model and posed for several magazines, claiming she had walked in ‘Parish’ fashion week several times. She had personally tailored outfits from the high fashion brands Juan Galliano and Alexandra McQueen, which are names that can be linked to the real British fashion designers John Galliano and Alexander McQueen,
- At 18 years old she broke into the Hollywood industry as an actress.
In order to get all the plates on the menu, the relevant rumor must be spread. Rumors must also be spread to add the Combo Plate to the menu. An extra sidequest line called "The Man Searching Quest" can be unlocked from which the Shiraishi Lady oversees.
