This is the kind of café you can get sucked into and never leave. Cozy, friendly, amazing coffee and homemade cakes. Such a simple thing but the toast was absolutely delicious. The coffee menu is vast with many different origins of beans. Our only regret was that we had to leave and didn't have time to go back a second... More

We stumbled onto the Higashide Coffee Shop by chance... wondering through the streets on Kanazawa. It looked like a very old-fashioned place, tucked behind 近江町市場 Omi-cho Market. It is paneled in wood and some interesting coffee selections are displayed on the shelves. There were only a couple of patrons during the day, a gentleman reading a newspaper and a couple... More

Not much except coffee, tea and one or two cake options in this lovely old fashioned coffee shop. It was a very pleasant place to while away some time on a wet, thundery morning. The best coffee we had in Kanazawa and probably the best we had in Japan.

Good coffee in this informal coffee shop which will serve more green tea than coffee! Good choice of snacks and local dishes as well, so a pleasant stop all round!

We had coffee here one morning - no english much spoken so we just said 'strong'. The coffee was 'brewed' for us and took a few minutes but it was amazing!
