Sounds like cafe is located in Echoland, an easy walk from Wandano where we stayed this ski trip. We visited this cafe for coffee and ended up having cake too. My partner had the Apple Pie, served with ice cream and stated that it is the best warm apple pie she has had in a long time. I enjoyed a... More

The food and drinks here are really good western style food. The food time was a bit slow but we were told about that as soon as we entered. Loved the fresh juices. The cafe is shut on Thursday and Friday so only got to eat there once. Would eat here again. I had a smashed avo with ricotta and... More

Great coffee, beautiful muffins and cakes all made on the premises. The burgers looked huge and delicious, the veggie burger is supposed to be fantastic! Lovely service and staff, very helpful in every way. We've been there 3 times!! .

The food and drinks here are really great. The BLAT sandwich and chicken burger are tops!! The staff are super friendly and speak great English. If your in a hurry don't bother, although the service is great it is quite slow. I would highly recommend being patient though. The burgers are worth it.

Unreal burgers! Unfortunately only got to visit once (Thursday's and Friday's are shut..I'm sure) had the chicken burger and added bacon and avocado. Will definitely hit this joint up again when I'm in Hakuba!

This is great place to have lunch. Western style cafe food (try the hamburgers) with the best coffee I had while in Japan. You need to go early or the food will run out due to high demand, which is understandable!

We stumbled across this cafe not even knowing it was so highly rated. We managed to beat the crowd as the cafe is small which typical of Japanese restaurants. The service was first class and the food delightful. We waited a while but were told of this before we sat down. The burgers were outstanding and well-priced. They soon ran... More

I actually love(d) this place, particularly the breakfasts. Unfortunately, it seems we are either unlucky or management still has some work to do. On average, 7/10 visits are "unsuccessful." Either, the cafe is randomly closed, or there is no breakfast that day, or menu items are out of stock. It is inconsistent enough that we have stopped going. Too many... More
