Satisfying coffee time before heading to your next destination
Inside the ticket gate of JR Shinkansen at Kyoto Station, there are several shops and eateries inside. If you have some time to spare, how about satisfying your stomach before your trip? At Café KOTO, coffee is prepared by siphon. It’s not your ordinary morning coffee (unless your daily coffee is made by a siphon). A skilled siphonist prepares the coffee for you to have a wonderful café time before heading to your next destination. Café KOTO offers delicious breakfast meals (served from 7am to 1...more0am), sandwiches, coffee, tea, and roast beef carpaccio, which will be great with wine; both are available from 10 am.
