If ever you find yourself in Kanazawa, dropping by The Cottage is a must. It has now moved to behind the Excel Hotel Tokyu and Kohrinbo 109 department store. If you get lost ring them, because this charming cafe/bar/restaurant is definitely worth seeking out. A highlight of our Japan trip, the first night we tasted delicious homemade pizza, pasta and...

Dropped in on a rainy Monday night and had a great evening chatting to our hosts. We ate the pizza of the day, and had a few drinks to pass the time. Very comfortable atmosphere and Tony and Momo were great hosts, listening to our travel stories. Would highly recommend for anyone who is tiring of the Japanese food and... More

We spent 4 weeks in Kanazawa and have ate out every night. This was by far the best food, service and atmosphere we experienced. Tony and Momo are wonderful hosts and Tony is an amazing chef! We went 3 times in one week.

Had a really good evening at The Cottage. We had a great veggy lasagne and an Irish stew especially made for me because of allergies. The food was great and all fresh and homemade. Lovely owners. They recently moved and people have trouble finding the new location apparently. Its really easy to find: they are located in the street directly... More

Just behind the 109 department store, I was moved to babble street! Sign of "Kikuhime" is the mark! Use cherish Liquor shop after the ancient Japanese, it has become a more lovely shops! Desserts and pasta making of Tony's is a delicious love none, but lasagna is I'm a favorite! Talkative bright peach's, sake also go fun!

Tony and Momo were wonderful hosts and the homemade pizza was a delicious respite from two weeks of rice (love Japanese food but nice to get some home comforts sometimes!). They were so kind and friendly, wishing us well on our travels. Tony has some great stories and we had a great evening. Thanks guys!

We saw the review and wanted to check the place out. Unfortunately all we found was a note on the door mentioning they moved. It doesn't say where they moved to, nor does the website. That's a shame

One of the best things about visiting the Cottage is its finely brewed Irish coffee. Along with dining topped with a coffee / whiskey cocktail, do open up for an engaging conversation with owners, Momo, and Tony, and find out a little more about Japan you may otherwise not have learned from popular sources. It's a good boost to the... More
