Breakfast specials were great. When we were leaving we checked out the bakery side and spotted some lovely looking breads and sandwiches. During our Japan trip we did not come across any other independent cafes' like this. It's a must do in Matsumoto.

This cafe next to the river in Matsumoto provided us with a high quality good value western style sandwich lunch. Menu includes soups and salads too. It also has a good range of American style cakes,pastries and bread for purchase in its small shop.

We needed a little change after a week of ramen and sushi for breakfast. What we found was such a surprise - eggs and butter, great coffee, and even baguettes. Oh, and you can sit outside and observe the people walking by (which is not very common in Japan, I suppose). We enjoyed a lot.

A little piece of France not far from Matsumoto Castle. We decided to drop in for breakfast, and it has a really warm feel about the place. The food was amazing, and the coffee was really good too! Highly recommend.

What a great way to have a break from a riverside stroll in Matsumoto. The staff welcome you inside and are very helpful about selecting your food. The caramel croissant and red bean paste donuts were a highlight. The aroma of fresh baking was delightful all set in a very relaxing dining area. Well worth visiting.
