Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a little break here and enjoyed some coffee, a great sandwich and the cakes. All was very good and the owner was very friendly and polite. For some Japanese flavour, try the matcha chcolate cake

We stopped here on our walk around the village. The Hot chocolate was delicious made the old fashioned way with a cheesy toast. Very reasonable price. Recommend a stop here to break up your walk.

We wanted a small lunch and this place was a hit! The toasted sandwiches and the matcha green tea cheesecake were surprising but delicious flavors. They make delicious cheesecakes and the menu seemed to have enough options to please any taste.

Having eaten Japanese food throughout our stay, we were wanting to try something different when visiting Koyasan. We came across this small cafe when browsing through the centre of Koyasan where most of the restaurants are located (near stops 6 and 15 of the local bus route). We tried the toasties (without the bacon) and they were delicious - loaded with veges, cheese and perfectly toasted. They also have a toasty with drink combo and I tried the hot chocolate, which was okay.

Nifty little place for lunch. From the front of the shop where all the little toys and crafts and antique tea sets etc etc are on display - to the back room with piles of cedar waiting to be trimmed and arranged for offerings , this place is a treasure. Be sure to read the signs on the wall explaining the uses of the cedar boughs. The food is good too. We loved our cheese toast sandwiches. The cheese cake was good too. A great place for a snack or a small lunch.

on the main road this quiet place attracted me by the cheese cake on the picture, the cake was just ok in my opinion ... not so tasty but may be I was on the wrong place, my friend agreed with me and chose a double expresso to get something strong but it was very light may not an expresso machine or a cheap quantity if coffee and i chose a matcha tea and i was so disappointed by the quantity, the waiter came with a big bowl ... quite empty, about 1.5 centimer high, what a bad joke with the picture comparison !! so it's ok for the first and last time. 2 dots for the overall quality +1 for the quiet place. No need to overate it for the followers.

Don’t pass by! It’s so small that it is easely overlooked but what a loss that would be! Having a nice toasted sandwich or delicious cheesecake is a welcome lunch after rice/tofu for breakfast and dinner. And for 7€ you get 2 sandwiches and a drink: a bargain. It’s also the only café in Koyasan where you can see trimming, bundling and selling of Koyamaki cedar ( for home alter and cemetary)! Try it! For sure!!!

We stopped by on a rainy day while waiting to check in to our hotel. The place itself is not the sexiest but the people working here are very warm and smiling. The espresso was good and the cheesecake and matcha chocolate cake are really devine! You can also get a toastie sandwich for lunch which can be a good solution for those who struggle to find a place to eat for later lunch.

A cosy little place on the main street to drop in for a coffee, tea and cheesecake. It has a couple of double booths and a large table up the front. The staff are welcoming and we found it easy to get chatting to fellow travellers who might share your table. The coffee is OK, nothing special, ditto the cheesecake.

We stopped here for a quick sweet bite and we fell in love with their homemade cheesecake and matcha chocolate cake. They are both absolutely delicious, fresh, moist and tasty.

A cozy small Japanese place with an amazing sandwich of ham, omelette, cheese and vegetables. You should definitely try if you wanna a time out of Japanese/Buddhist food. It is awesome!!! It is open only after 11 a.m. price of sandwich: 700 yen

Super cheesy toast and cheese cake we're the perfect comfort foods for a cold day in koya san. The owner also makes cedar leaf offerings for the shrines in the shop - very interesting!

We came across this restaurant while searching for somewhere to have an evening meal in November. Many places had already closed. It was run by a charming man who served us tasty toasties, cheesecake and excellent coffee. Prices were very reasonable as well. We can recommend this place to anyone wanting a similar style of food visiting Koyasan.
