A royal chocolatier on the bank of the Kamogawa River
Established in 1935, Salon de Royal Kyoto is a specialty chocolatier located on the street of Kiyamachi-dori, along the bank of the Kamogawa River.
Once you pass through the cramped “alleyway” entrance, you’ll be greeted by a magnificent jewelry box-like display case of chocolates.
Salon de Royal Kyoto offer a range of sweets, including chocolate cakes made with chocolate sourced from France, as well as, macarons and Mont Blanc.
In addition, Salon de Royal Kyoto also use traditionally Kyoto ingredients, such as Nishikyo-miso, Kombu (kelp), and Umeshu (plum wine) in combination with chocolate to offer both unique and wonderfully Kyoto-esque flavors.
From May until the end of September, the outdoor Kawayuka seating area opens up, offering a wonderful place to enjoy a coffee and dessert with a view of the Kamogawa River.
Salon de Royal Kyoto also sell beautifully packaged items, perfect as souvenirs for loved ones, too.
