Simply serious coffee and home-made gelato shop. You won’t find better anywhere else in Nagano. Aussie couple who has devoted their lives to real coffee and gelato. The real deal.

If you don’t have a chai latte or hot chocolate or pistachio or milk gelato, you haven’t lived. Matt and his wife provide exceptionally friendly service and advice as well as warming hot drinks and flavoursome treats. We’ll be back!

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...More
