went there a couple of times for breakfast. They were open when many others were closed as it was end of season. Friendly staff and have nice western breakfast dishes.

We were in hakuba at the tail end of the ski season and most of the establishments were closed but we found an oasis where the best coffee by far is served in Echo land. Vegetable burger was awesome!

Desperate for a good coffee- this is the place! Great coffee and muffins. Nice and cosy cafe and friendly staff. I sat and had a coffee and read my magazine while family skied and no pressure to leave from the staff!

This place has great coffee and cakes, that we can confirm from our own tasting experience. The burgers looked great, just never worked out that we ate lunch there. If you there and you're lunch hungry check them out.

Even though breakfast was included in our hotel we ate here 3 mornings because their breakfast was soo good. We didn't expect to get Aust style smashed Avo on toast (sad I know but after a week of sushi you do crave some 'home style' food!) or French Toast and a soy late in Hakuba but so glad we found...

The burgers there are incredible!! Best burgers in the area for sure and at a very very good price! Coffee is great too. Can't recommend this place enough, make sure you go here at the start of your trip to Hakuba as if you go towards the end you will be disappointed you didn't eat there more!

A funky café located in Echoland with the best coffee in Hakuba by far which also does delicious cakes and muffins.
