Matcha desserts arranged to be a garden in bowl
Turn left after the Keifuku Electric Railroad “Arashiyama station” and you will see the entrance to eXCAFE right in front of you.
This café offers a wide range of original Japanese sweets, most of which are made with Matcha (Japanese green tea). The Kyoto Kuro Matcha roll cake, which is one of the café’s most popular desserts, is a sponge cake made with bamboo charcoal paste.
We also highly recommend the green tea Soba carbonara! It’s not as crazy as you think, so please give it a try, because it’s totally worth it!
Both of things mentioned above, as well as other dishes, has been carefully arranged to mimic the look of a Japanese garden on the plate. There are also real Japanese gardens that you can look out upon from the cafe, which are carefully cleaned by the staff every day. The garden you can look out on differs according to the table you sit at. You will receive a warm welcome by the Kimono wearing staff as well, so sit back, relax and make yourself comfortable with the Japanese traditional instrumental music playing in the background.
