Maeda Coffee Main Restaurant (前田珈琲 本店)

4.0

Other Coffee Shop

A five-minute walk from Karasuma Station and Shijo Station. This long-standing cafe is located a short distance down Takoyakushi-dori Street off of Karasuma-dori Street. The cafe's distinctive, retro building was originally a kimono fabric store. One of the cafe's draws is that smoking is allowed in all of the seats except for the non-smoking area. Particularly recommended is a cup of coffee made with a direct heat roaster, together with one of the cafe's homemade sweets. The cafe's seasonal pies, cakes, and mousses make for popular souvenirs. Also popular are the cafe's light meals such as its signature spaghetti Napolitan and old fashioned cheese toast.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
