Story & Recommendation
A prominent established old Kyoto café with a lavish food menu
This popular established café has endless lines on days off. There is a coffee bean grinder right there as you walk in, and the pleasant aroma of coffee wafts through the air. The interior décor is based around rich brown wood and tiles, plus fantastic leather sofas, an old clock…It is one of Japan’s long-standing old cafés. On the first floor, they serve up light fare like hotcakes and sandwiches, and on the second floor, they serve western dishes like hamburgers between 11:30 and 15:00. You have lunch or just take a break from sightseeing. *This time we will introduce the first floor menu.

Hot Cake
Hot Cake / ¥700
Thick, moist and fluffy. Put on plenty of butter and syrup. Not too sweet, and easy to eat.

Smart Original Blende Coffee
Smart Original Blende Coffee / ¥550
Coffee made with beans home-ground in the shop. It has a refreshing flavor without being too bitter. It is great after your meal, but also pairs well with light fare such as hotcakes.

Egg Sandwiches
Egg Sandwiches / ¥750
Huge portions! They are filled with thick slices of fried egg. The balance between the bite of the mustard spread on the bread with the sweetness of the eggs is perfect. Add salt to taste.

Coffee Beans and Ground Coffee in Resealable Cans (Take Out) / 200g
Coffee Beans and Ground Coffee in Resealable Cans (Take Out) / 200g / ¥1,900
You can buy the coffee served at the café as coffee beans or ground coffee. It comes in the café’s own original resealable cans, so it might make a good souvenir.
How to Order



Just a cup of coffee is fine, but if you have room for it, you definitely want to try the hotcakes or something else from the food menu. Also, the first floor only serves the café menu, but on the second floor, you can order from the lunch menu, including hamburgers and fried shrimp, from 11:00 to 14:30, except on Tuesdays.

- Order Tips -
The portions are large for the items on the light menu, such as hotcakes and sandwiches. If you get full and cannot finish, you can take the rest home with you.
