Great place to stop in after a day on the slopes. Coffee excellent by Japanese standards, cakes and pastries very good and the burgers are amazing. If it is full, can take up to an hour to get your food, so be patient.

Went to Sounds Like Cafe feeling tired and grumpy, came out full and refreshed. Prices are excellent for Echo Land with good portion sizes, meaning you do get your moneys worth. My cappucino was perfect and my bacon and eggs was more than satisfying. Wait staff are friendly and humble, and the cafe itself is adorable. Would recommend to someone... More

Friends raved about this cafe for a long time so a group of us thought we would give it a go. Usually the wait around lunch time is 1+ hours, but when we went, we only had to wait 10 minutes. However, they sat the 5 of us across two separate tables in different areas of the cafe and were... More

Great burgers, pizza, and atmosphere. A definite to try if you are staying in Echoland. Service was good - it does get busy at lunchtime so if in a hurry try to get in either earlier or later

Went in for late lunch at 300 and still had to wait for a seat despite 2 obviously empty tables. It was our 2nd trip in 2 years and same as last time, half the items of the menu were unavailable. However, the burgers are good.

Really good even if the service is very slow at times. Well worth the visit but be prepared to be patient. Excellent coffee.

Sound like cafe does breakfast and lunch, open until 5pm. Massive portion sizes for a great price and one of the best places for coffee in echo land. Been back at least four times. It does get busy after 1 though.
