Next, for those of you who have to have western food for breakfast, Matsunosuke Kyoto!


This shop sells simple American baked goods like pancakes, apple pies, scones, and cookies.


Their famous pancakes are so soft they melt in your mouth! Many people become addicts, but remember to pour maple syrup on it!

town house

The café is located in a renovated town house with a relaxed atmosphere. The café is, like Iemon Salon Kyoto, located a 3-minute walk from subway Karasumaoike Station, so how about having some great breakfast here?

Address 605, Kikkoyacho, Nakagyo-ku Kyoto-shi, Kyoto, 604-8105
Open Hours 8:00~18:00 (L.O.17:30)



You don’t have to go to a fancy café to have great breakfast. How about buying some bread and eating it picnic-style by a river?


Kyoto is the city of bread. There are actually many bakeries in Kyoto, and the people of Kyoto eat the most bread in the whole of Japan. All the bread in Kyoto is high-quality, and all of it is delicious! Among them my recommendation is this one, Grandir Oike, a small bakery located next to Kyoto City Hall.

nice smell of breadbread

Grandir is one of the famous bakeries of Kyoto, and it is always full of customers. The bakery is always crammed full of baked goods, and the nice smell of bread being baked always fills the bakery.

bagels paninis

Grandir is famous for its bagels and paninis. The bagels are chewy and have a natural sweetness to them. The paninis are made for order, so you can get hot paninis, which is great!

Kamo River

On a nice day the best place for a picnic is by the Kamo River. This is a perfect way to start a nice day!

Address 480-2 Teramachi-dori Street Oike Agaru Kami Honnojimae-cho, Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto 604-0925
Open Hours 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
