Im not a coffee drinker, but this coffee late was amazing. I really loved it! The coffee and the milk tasted balance and not overpowered each other.

About one block, not far from the Kiyomizu-dera Temple is this coffee shop recognized by the"%" sign. There is a variety of different coffee blends. Small community table in back. It appeared popular with the local population.

This small coffee stand serves up a really good caffeine boost. Really smooth iced latte. Order up the sandwich and it will be a really great breakfast fuel.
