The place has very nice music and atmosphere. The coffee was not so good in our opinion, the apple pie also. Prices are average if not a bit high.

Service and atmosphere is wonderful. We had cappuccinos, mochas, americanos, apple pie, and cream puffs and all was delicious. Came here on two different occasions because we really enjoyed the place.

We are the first cafe in Takayama-city opened since in the year of 1951, one year after when the coffee bean import was started. Enjoy fresh and flavorful nell drip coffee brewed by the "master", the owner of the cafe. Try variety of sweets, and sandwiches made out of seasonal fruits, vegetables, milk freshly produced in local farm. The interior of the house preserves the classic and cozy atmosphere as original. The cafe opens from 7:30 am to 9:30 pm, and the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, and coffee-break for local neighbors and visitors from the world. We welcome with warm hospitality and looking forward to your visits.
