Walk south along Otakebashi-dori from Machiya Station and you'll eventually see this old-school café on your right. Although they apparently haven’t even been open for that long, the interior at Hanamoto looks like something straight out of the early ‘80s, complete with a vintage pay phone, flower patterns and classic toy cars. The menu is essentially the same as at any neighbourhood kissaten like this, consisting of simple sandwiches, toasts and Japanese-style spaghetti like the famed napolitan, but they do brew some pretty decent coffee (from ¥400). A fun place for people-watching, but those sensitive to cigarette smoke will want to stay away.

Coffee tastes bland.... The blend coffee that being recommended to me by the shop keeper doesn't have enough body to be called decent coffee. Won't ever come back. :(
