This coffee shop is a local's hangout – you can tell by the regulars that have breakfast every morning. The coffee is excellent; they don't do espressos, but still it's very smooth and drinkable. The breakfasts are an amazing bargain, with gorgeous fluffly buttered toast....More

Found this place walking to the markets to do some grocery shopping. It was exactly what we were looking for - a cute cafe with nice food and great service.

Old-school Japanese breakfast joint. Most regulars smoke cigarettes and sip on coffee as they read the morning paper inside this modest cafe whose interior still sports an older decor. It's very authentic. I actually hesitated to give this 4 stars; still, it's an experience, the...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
