If you like their style, don`t forget to check out some of the original goods they have for sale. By the entrance, you can purchase post cards, Tenugui towels, ands pins. I enjoyed not only their tasty quiche, but I also enjoyed their ambience. The cafe has a nice feel from the old Kyoto house and from vintage items like Royalite type writer used for decoration.

Sun shine coming from roof top made my heart feel warm. All of dishes that we ordered were great especially my favorite, the seasonal tart. The Fruits topped on the tart was colorful, cute and pop full of freshness. The texture of the tart dough was nice also. This season`s fruit was “kaki” which has a strong sweetness. I came across another surprise. After eating, I went to the wash room which was located at the back of the cafe. On the way to the washroom, I opened the glass door and saw the yard. It is an old Japanese style yard. I enjoyed the café even through my way to the washroom. Really fantastic!!
