We walked around Zenkoji looking for a cafe, and stumbled across this cozy little restaurant run by two very nice folks. The latte and cheesecake was simply amazing. The gelato is also a must-try. It is very different and unique compared to other gelato because the flavor is very rich and original. 11/10 would visit again. :)

Walking back from a 2 hour visit around Zenkoji Temple. An icy wind, 8 degrees celsius. The sun was low. We felt we could kill for something hot. We came across this small cafe that had a sign indicating that it is suitable for coffee snobs. Well, that was a challenge indeed. We're from Melbourne, a city with a legion... More

An Aussie guy and his Japanese wife run this wonderful little cafe just down from the Zenkoji temple. Matt makes all his own gelato from local farmers' fruit (eg raspberry), just delicious, and we also loved the miso caramel one...and the triple chocolate! Really good proper coffee too, homemade cakes and I think they do soups etc over the cooler... More
