We had breakfast, lunch, and dinner at this place. All is good. But the best is matcha pasta. You should try it. Very worth to try. I am recommending this place to enjoy the time when you visit Kyoto. Won't regret it.

I recommend going early for their breakfasts. They sold out of some items. They accept my US Mastercard, which was nice. The pork and eggs sandwich meal was fantastic. My girlfriend found her raw egg and rice meal to be rather bland, but not disappointing....More

After a long wait had a high expectation, which is not met at all. Specialized in green tea, but there was nothing special about it. Nice modern setting though.

This place is great for breakfast and lunch. The food is amazing, it's not overpriced and the atmosphere is great too. Will definitely visit again.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
