Come here for the nice atmosphere and the lovely cakes and tarts from the bakery next door. Unlike other cafes in Kyoto you get the feeling that it is ok here to sit and read a book while drinking a coffee.

Coffee was great and the BLAT was pretty delicious also. Only downside was it had a distinct ash taste due to the guy next to me smoking. If you don't mind involving yourself in a nicotine compression session, than this place is actually great!

We visited this place a couple of times during our week in Kyoto. We loved the coffee but also the wide food menu. Great and relaxing place for a drink as well! It looks amazing inside, really inspiring for home decor :)

clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
