Lovely breakfast sandwich and a great coffee blend here. Place by the window on a chill street for relaxed people watching...owners have done a great job, recommended!

We stopped in for coffee and decided to get breakfast when we saw the breakfast sandwiches. The coffee was phenomenal, so much so that we came back again the next and last day of our trip to get coffee and breakfast again. I highly recommend the mexican mocha.
The staff and owners were very friendly and the coffee was top notch. I also overheard that the coffee is sourced from a local coffee roaster, and it was amazing. Thank you!

We visited Curio after reading the rave reviews and were not disappointed! I had the zesty mocha, and my wife had the cinnamon latte. Both were delicious, and I'd recommend the zesty mocha in particular because of how well the orange zest pairs with the chocolate. We had the pulled pork sandwich plate and a breakfast sandwich plate for a late breakfast. The plate includes a salad and soup of the day with your sandwich at a very reasonable price. The salad was crisp and refreshing, and the soup - a pureed corn soup for our meal - was very enjoyable. I had a bite of Rosa's breakfast sandwich and it was great. The pork sandwich was perfect for the meal and fit well with our coffees. The pork had great flavor without overpowering the other ingredients. It was subtle with a mild spice thst married extremely well with the sweet mustardy slaw, and the housemade sauce. The bread on both sandwiches was fresh and yummy, with just enough softness to tell you it's fresh, and just enough chew to keep things interesting.

Yuko, Sol, and the rest of the staff were wonderful and very accommodating. We'd highly recommend going, and will certainly be back on our next visit to Kanazawa.

We’re from Seattle so when we read the description of Curio Espresso, we had to visit. The coffee was fabulous, the house made chai was spicey and rich, the roasted veggie sandwiches were absolutely delicious, and the space was cozy and welcoming. We really enjoyed chatting with the friendly owners. Our only regret is that we discovered this sweet cafe on our very last day in Kanazawa. Our whole family loved this sweet cafe and we recommend it to anyone visiting Kanazawa.
