Description: Our Cafe in Shugakuin is inspired by the concept of 'No Factory Food'. We make almost everything from scratch using fresh ingredients, including our sun-dried tomato sauce, our family-made fresh pasta, flans, sausages, home-cured ham, cheese, ginger ale, and our ice-cream. We also have free Wi-fi and speak English and Japanese. We also have a great wine selection. Very reasonably priced, and fun!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our two lunch experiences at Foodelica. Service-outstanding, menu simply wholesome and healthy, food delightfully delicious. We sampled four different dishes all superb. The team of chef Sasha and Aki, are difficult to beat. We would have gone back again, but our return flight to Canada was too early.

Absolutely worth the bus or train ride. It is only 30 minutes from the city center. You will not be disappointed.

We have a family member with celiac so we needed to find a place that could accommodate gluten free. Our tour guide called Foodelica and they can prepare gluten free. We all decided to have the chicken curry which was delicious and came with a fresh green salad. The owner was very careful about being gluten free which we greatly appreciated. The food is cooked to order and it's just one person so it did take a bit of time but it was delicious.

Local organic veggies, handmade pasta, handmade sausages, handmade desserts, handmade everything! Great veggie options, everything is top-quality and tasty so you absolutely cannot go wrong here. Borderline between you should ALWAYS come here if nearby, and you should go out of your way to make a special trip to come here wherever you are--it's that good! Very reasonably priced for top-tier food by a chef who knows her rotating local ingredients. Hop off at the Shūgakuin station on the Eizan line and make your way here!

Was nice to have an English speaking staff and menu. Food was fresh and delicious. Menu was not extensive but the coriander curry and garlic toast were just what we needed after a day exploring Kyoto. Last order was at 8 pm and we got there shortly beforehand. Staff were very polite and accommodating. Price was very reasonable.

Whilst the menu was not massive, everything was as fresh and tasty as could be. The salad was to die for, the coffee was good and the pasta excellent. Quite a find
