With its minimal, Japanese-style decor, this café five minutes' walk from Kinshicho Station offers a stylish setting for enjoying some exquisitely executed traditional sweets. Seating is spread between a counter, tables, sofas and a zashitsu private room at the back of the shop. There's a good selection of savoury dishes on offer, including a daily deli plate, though many customers skip straight to dessert: try the kinako crepes, green tea warabimochi, or the summer-only array of kakigori creations.
