Cafe Machiko

/ Cafe 町子
Cafe Machiko
Located at Senbon-Kitaoji, a popular town for students, Cafe Machiko is always the favorite place of local people wishing to relax there on their own ways. The concept of the cafe is a private room of a girl who has been travelling all over the world. Lords of books, pictures, goods are decorated in the cafe as if they are souvenirs from various parts of the world she has visited.

They provide burger, pasta, Japanese local food, such as Karaage (fried chicken) and others. You could stay in th...moree cafe as long as you want; even sleeping is allowed if you order main meal at least. There is a variety of chairs and sofas and you could choose your favorite one to seat as long as there are just few people there. Manga, guide books and photographs are available and you could also display your own photos. This is the place where memories during your trip in Kyoto would be held.

For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I had really wanted to visit there for long.
As I thought, all concepts are my preference, especially the interior.
Surroundings antiques and books make me smile naturally and cure my heartbreak as well. However, most meals are absolutely large unlike the atmosphere.
I have decided to visit again this weekend to read my favorite novel.
Machiko Burger
1Must Eat !
Machiko Burger / ¥860
Hard taste of meat and pepper are advantage.
Buns are a bit sweet so I would recommend having it without any seasonings.
It comes along with salad, chips and soup of the day (1D +¥150).
Karaage rice bowl
2Must Eat !
Karaage rice bowl / ¥790
No need to say! It is absolutely dynamic! Juicy and jumbo fried chicken with mayonnaise must be a high-calorie combination. If you are feeling hungry during your sightseeing, pop in the café and have a bite of the chicken to instantly fill your energy up.
Matcha Japanese pan cake
3Let's Try !
Matcha Japanese pan cake / ¥860
Be careful when you order it as a desert after having lunch.
Please believe me that its volume is extremely unbelievable.
Aroma of Matcha, powdered green tea, will be spread out in your mouth lightly.
Having red beans and Matcha ice cream with the pancake makes the taste better and stronger.
