I read several articles about this place and thought of having a visit but never managed to stop by at this neighbourhood during my stay in Kyoto. Thanks to my dear friend who gave me a ride weeks ago and we enjoyed a pleasant and delicious meal here.... The small building was uniquely designed to combine a mini library, art gallery, cafe/restaurant, music station, garden and two hotel rooms upstairs. It was located in a quiet residential area northeast of Kyoto, between the Chayama Station (茶山駅) and the Kyoto University of Art and Design, or I should say, closer to the university. The Kyoto bus can take you there or, take a walk from the Chayama Station, the Elian Line. It was such a laid-back and comfortable setting ; great for meeting friends or stayed alone for coffee and cake. Yet I was greedy to combine two meals together, lunch and afternoon tea. The menu was simple and brief, but the food was good and freshly prepared by a professionally trained chef. The chicken was properly cooked with crispy skin but juicy meat; the flies was tasty that I finished all.. ( I seldom did that.) The lunch came with a small corn soup. We also loved the green salad. I was not sure if all these were organic but the food quality was definitely good. Coffee and dessert ? Yummy. Price? Reasonable. The facility was not new, in fact a little dated and it would be great for some facelifting work (except the mini-library area, which was nice and well kept..)Yet I fully enjoyed eating in such a casual but art filled setting, surrounded by natural light, paintings on the wall, art work displays on tables, soothing jazz music, and greens from the garden through the glass... Recommended to the young and old, families with kids as well.
