The cafe is located near Togetsukyo Bridge in Arashiyama, a famous sightseeing spot. Visitors can enjoy meals and sweets made with healthy, wholesome ingredients from Kyoto. Lunch with meat and vegetables is particularly recommended as it is filling and reasonably priced, but there are also vegetarian options available.
The wood-based interior gives the restaurant a sense of warmth and openness. There is also table seating with sofas in addition to chairs, so it is safe for children. The café is open for both lunch and teatime. There is also a shower room with lockers available for 550 yen.

It consists of a main dish, two side dishes, salad, pickles, miso soup, and rice. In addition, the set comes with rooibos tea and mini smoothies. You can choose the main dish to be vegan or with chicken, and the rice to be multigrain rice or brown rice. The contents of the set change daily.

The sweetness and aroma of tomatoes and fried onions are the keys to this vegetarian pasta dish. It is also lightly salted and easy to eat. As seasonal vegetables are used, the ingredients change daily.

All the sweets at musubi-cafe are vegan and gluten-free, but they are just as delicious as regular sweets, if not even better! The photo shows a healthy cake made with tofu from Kyoto and Uji matcha from Wazuka, Kyoto's largest matcha production area.
