For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
As I love taking a walk around Au Temps Perdu because there are a lot of shrines and temples nearby. So I sometimes take some cakes away at the cafe. I highly recommend that you take some away when you visit your friend's house as a gift!
Hot Chocolate are ¥500 for take away. When I went, winter was around the corner. The hot chocolate will make you feeling warm inside especially in the winter. Accompanied by a cup of hot chocolate while sightseeing Kyoto was great!
