Takayama is a sleepy town during winter season so we were so glad to find this family run cafe which we can laze for most afternoon. This is located near to the morning market. Note they are closed on Tuesday. The cafe owners are very...More

I didn't expect to find such good coffee in Takayama. The cafe itself is also really cute and has a bit of a European feel to it. Definitely worth a visit while in town.

Great place to get out of the snow in the morning. The set breakfast with toast "large", boiled egg, juice, and coffee was a great value. Definitely beats a over-priced hotel breakfast buffet.

Their service is more like family oriented, A choux cream is just an average but you should give a shot at their cheesecake.

Coffee Don, established since 1951, offered good coffee, great atmosphere and tasty hot sandwich. It is located in the middle of takayama with french cafe feeling. Good to try.

We are the first cafe in Takayama-city opened since in the year of 1951, one year after when the coffee bean import was started. Enjoy fresh and flavorful nell drip coffee brewed by the "master", the owner of the cafe. Try variety of sweets, and sandwiches made out of seasonal fruits, vegetables, milk freshly produced in local farm. The interior of the house preserves the classic and cozy atmosphere as original. The cafe opens from 7:30 am to 9:30 pm, and the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, and coffee-break for local neighbors and visitors from the world. We welcome with warm hospitality and looking forward to your visits.
