A new take on an old Japanese classic: koppepan
HAPPY BUNS is a bakery-café specializing in koppepan, a type of Japanese bread roll. This bakery has a unique lineup of koppepan with interesting fillings like ramen noodles. It’s fun just to look at them in the showcase, but even more fun to eat the delicious koppepan. Koppepan has been loved for many decades in Japan. This bakery is changing traditional koppepan in new and exciting ways. In Kyoto, traditions are kept alive by letting them change with the times, and HAPPY BUNS is doing just this with their koppepan. This bakery is located close to Sanjusangen-do Temple and Kyoto National Museum, so how about a walk after eating a koppepan? Some customers of HAPPY BUNS say that they have walked all the way to Kiyomizu Temple. When sightseeing around the area, by all means, pop in.
Kinugasa
1Recommend!
Kinugasa / ¥380 (Including tax)
Kinugasa is a koppepan with a piece of Japanese omelet in the middle and sandwiched in this omelet you can find abura-age (deep-fried tofu) seasoned with soy sauce. This koppepan is named after the rice bowl Kinugasa, which is said to have originated from Kyoto, and which is topped with an omelet containing both abura-age and Kujo green onion. The nori (dried seaweed) and sansho (Japanese pepper) on top of the omelet bring a nice piquant taste to it.
Ramen
2Recommend!
Ramen / ¥380 (Including tax)
The most surprising thing about this koppepan is the way it looks: it sandwiches actual ramen noodles. You have all the ramen classics: ajitsuke tamago (seasoned boiled egg), narutomaki kamaboko, and chashu pork. It looks just like ramen! Ramen and koppepan are an unlikely combination, but the saltiness in the noodles goes surprisingly well with the bread.
Shirokuma
3Check it out!
Shirokuma / ¥350 (Including tax)
Shirokuma (polar bear) is a koppepan served chilled with fruits and condensed milk. It was named Shirokuma after its inspiration, the similarly named shaved ice dessert from Kagoshima. This chilled koppepan is just what the hot summers of Kyoto call for. Although the bread is chilled it’s still soft, and the combination of the sweetness of the condensed milk and custard with the slightly sour fruits is exquisite.
Shiso Syrup Soda / Drip Coffee
4Check it out!
Shiso Syrup Soda / Drip Coffee / ¥600 and ¥400 respectively, including tax
The shiso syrup soda is made by mixing red shiso (beefsteak plant) syrup into soda. Not only is the graduation of the colors in this drink beautiful, the taste with the slight sourness of the shiso leaves you feeling very refreshed. The coffee is made from a special blend of beans, blended especially to go with koppepan. Enjoy a coppepan with coffee.

HAPPY BUNS specializes in something very special: Japanese bread rolls known as "koppepan." Their koppepan is very fluffy, but it has more taste to it than most other koppe offerings. I especially want to recommend their Japanese omelet koppepan; it is topped with some Japanese pepper, adding a nice tanginess to the sweet taste.
