We stopped for a pancake and a milk floater - absolutely delicious and worth going. From the outside as well as from the inside the Café looks quite artificial and pink. Nonetheless worth going and enjoying a good stop for same cake in the afternoon.

Came here for a short break from the shopping. The Teramachi is a great retail haven but does not come with many cafes. Shin-setsu is one of the few and it offers lovely pancakes. Tried the pancake with potato egg and caramel milk shake with...More

Spotted this place while walking down a busy shopping strip and vowed to come back to it. Seats only about 15pax and is decorated in pink with barbies, chandeliers and colourful prints on the walls including a pop art print of Marilyn Monroe. Fantastic ambiance,...More

I went in because I saw a huge line in front of the store. They serve wonderful icecream floats and delicious and fluffy pancakes (with icecream and maple syrup) on a hot, iron plate. Delicious!

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.

Shin-Setsu is a café on Teramachi Shopping Street where you can enjoy 24 different kinds of soda floats Do you know what “cream soda” is? It is a special drink that in my childhood I could only have when we went out to the town. There is a café right here in Kyoto that has, gasp! 24 kinds of melon soda, or as they are more commonly known, soda floats. This retro cuteness of this café Shin-Setsu is the reason for its popularity among women in Japan. Melon, mango, strawberry, are just some of the flavors they have available, and they are all cute and photogenic! Besides their soda floats, they also have piping hot pancakes served to you on hot metal plates and the cuteness of the place that makes it a favorite among women. How about trying the Japanese version of soda float, cream soda, here at Shin-Setsu?
