We found this place when looking for a dessert after a restaurant. The style is traditional and the food is good: the hot chocolate was great and the home made Apple pie was delicious. Pick up the "a la mode" one for the ice cream...More

Very nice place with good cappuccino and cakes. The people who run the place are very friendly and helpfull. It feels like a Casablanca movie because of the Music and feel of the place. We loved it.

We just happened to find this amazing little cafe. Warm and welcoming. Really nice coffee ( a rare find in Japan) and yummy cakes. Wish we 'd found it on Day 1 of our stay in Takayama.

The oldest coffee house in Takayama ..opened in 1951. Family run. So welcoming! And what a coffee selection! I went with the latte and rum! The famous song from Casablanca was playing as we walked it. We loved this little cafe. Try mama's pudding! Wonderful!...More

Needed a coffee and came into this place after asking a shop owner.. Nice quaint place. Good coffee and cheesecake is a sponge cake with cheese filing.

A long bar typifies this coffee bar which doesn't seem to have changed much since the 1950s. Local people smoke and read newspapers while the coffee is made in front of you. Staff very nice, even to foreigners. Very much Western-style cafe/bar.
