Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The service was bad. We paid 700 yen for a coffee and waited 15 minutes ..the service forgot our coffee to prepair. The taste was ugly and we left without drinking. Never again.

We spent four days in Kyoto and this became our daily wake up call. Just a couple minutes walk from Kyoto central station, this very modern and clean coffee shop stands out for two reasons - amazing coffee, and impeccable service. It opens at 8am...so be prepared to join the queue as its very popular, however I don't think I ever waited more than about 5 mins to be served and the same to get my order. There is a little bit of room to dine in, but we decided on takeaway. The staff are very friendly and speak very good English while also being super tolerant of my very bad Japanese. On the first day they took my name for the order and then remembered it for future days and go out of their way to make every customer feel special. All the staff thank each patron as they leave the shop. They offer two blends of coffee which are both very good.More

Best coffee in Kyoto, maybe Japan, maybe the world. Small space, standing room only, great atmosphere, even better coffee. Matcha Espresso latte will set you right for the day. Lovely and attentive staff, went here everyday. Thank you again, can’t wait to come back.

I'm a fan of their matcha latte (but at their Singapore branch), and I've always wanted to drop by their original store in Kyoto. I finally made my way there in Feb 2023, and I was so glad I was able to visit them. Ordered...matcha latte (as usual) and it was very smooth, as expected. Sweetness was just right too! Love the ambience of the cafe, very laidback and cozy, but dine in area is limited and small.More

Work your way from the busy street; past a local shrine; and find this upscale coffee shop. Enjoy a delicious latte and watch the shop life and steet-life.
