#101~150, Japan, Kyoto

#142: Zenkashoin, KYOTO Muromachi Store

The caffeine here is matcha green tea.

“Zen no Zen” – a bowl of matcha with Zenkashoin’s selection of cakes. Fluffy, chewy, and creamy.

A summer special – hojicha (roasted green tea) flavoured shaved-ice and jelly with a black sesame cookie.

This place is half cafe and half store.

#141: Brooklyn Roasting Company, Namba

Apparently this Brooklyn Roasting Company started in New York circa 2010, and now they have three locations within Japan – two in Osaka, one in Tokyo. This is one of the Osaka ones.

(They were doing a collaboration period with the Keith Haring Museum when I first went, and had art work all over. It was gone the second time I went, though.)

Token Pizza is right next door and they’re connected as one big floor room inside.

Coffee lemonade, canele, seasonal doughnut (orange).

Pepperoni pizza, Italian sausage pizza, onion rings, homemade pickles.

The Token Pizza side of things.

Latte – my choice of bean/blend was the Iris Espresso.

They sell a whole range of coffee beans and other merchandise.
