We stopped here to pick up take-out sandwiches. Cute coffee shop in a picturesque location. The owner is really nice and efficient. The sandwiches were good - ham and cheese and chicken/basil. We didn’t try the coffee.

Great coffee and a delightful owner. Close to Yasaka Pagoda. Good place to rest after sight seeing. Walk typical Kyoto neighbourhood not too busy.
