#151~200, Japan, Kyoto


A burst of kawaii opened early April 2018 in the middle of a shopping arcade in central Kyoto.

Their matcha tiramisu latte, complete with cream cheese cream.

They have a trick mirror that brings up quotes and patterns.

#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.

#166: WTe

Short for “Way to Emue”, WTe is run by Emue, a hair salon in Nishi-Kyogoku of Kyoto. Above it stands their second hair salon, Ensue.

They are open for both lunch and dinner – this is their lunch set up.

Out of the 10 deli menus on display, you can choose 5 for your deli lunch plate. It comes with some soup, and your choice of bread or mixed rice.

A latte with the mini dessert of the day: gateau chocolat.

A cafe on the first floor of a hotel in between Hirano Shrine and Ritsumeikan University.

(Their name on the front of the building is longer than the title of this post, but the title is based on their name written on their official Instagram page.)

A cafe latte and the pasta lunch plate (carbonara dipping pasta);
A cup of hand drip coffee and the deli plate (chicken and rice).
