We had a really great brunch at Smart Coffee. We ordered one portion of French toast and one portion of hotcakes (pancakes). The French toast really is amazing, so soft and gooey. Hotcakes were also really nice, although I found them slightly dry after the French toast.
The accompanying syrup is not at all sickly sweet which is good.

Really good coffee, and the freshly squeezed orange juice was very refreshing.

The interior is like an old European coffee house. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

Smart coffee is near my hostel thus I eat he breakfast here almost everyday, they have different kinds of breakfast, you can try French toast, hot cake or pudding, with coffee. It's good place for breakfast or you might visit anytime if you would like to have relax time.

Stopped on here for a quick brunch having read the other reviews. I agree with them - the French toast is great, as are ham and egg sandwiches. Stop here if you want a good dependable breakfast with no surprises to the western palette

By far the greatest French toast I have ever experienced, washed down with an iced coffee. Excellent service too - heartily recommend if you are in Kyoto. We visited around 11:30am on a weekday and we were seated almost straight away.

Chocolate cake was great service impeccable as we are finding in Japan. Everywhere we go we are experiencing exceptional customer service from the most polite people.
This place was no exception either. We ordered an americano which turned up not quite as strong as we'd have liked. Maybe ask for an expresso with hot water on the side!
