#168: Blue Bottle Coffee Kyoto

Blue Bottle Coffee from California first opened its cafe doors outside of America in 2015, in Tokyo. After opening 7 locations in the capital city of Japan, it opened one on 23 March 2018 in the country’s ancient centre, Kyoto.

Merchandise are sold in the front house.

The little outside area before the second house, which is the cafe area.

Packed with people because it was the second weekend after opening.
It was much less crowded and there were extra seats in the gravel area when I visited again a few weeks later.

A gibraltar and a Liege waffle.

A second round with my friend – two lattes (one blend, one single origin from Honduras)
A yuzu & poppy seed cake.
A cheese & tomato scone.
