Title said it all, even you don't like dessert if you are there go and give it a try...It maybe a bit tricky to find the shop even it located on the main road.

Not usually such a huge fan of green tea desserts but i have to say being in Kyoto, we knew we had to try a good one after so many of these green tea houses dotted around in Kyoto. The signature tsujuri parfait was priced ard $12aud and was the best dessert we had the whole trip. So good without... More

We arrived around 5 pm - the place was a little hard to find but it is on a main road and you just need to pay attention to the signs and not be fazed by the shop selling green tea on the bottom floor. It really doesn't look like a restaurant - look for the model parfaits on the... More

Theres is always a queue. But the parfait alone is worth the queue. And you get 30% discount to buy the goods downstairs.

Whenever I'm in Kyoto, I will definitely pay them a visit. I was so looking forward to have their matcha soft serve but only to find out that they do not sell them in winter time. I was pretty shocked! I seldom eat their parfait as the portion was too huge for my appetite as I'm not really a dessert... More

Bought home 2 bags of Uji tea. The taste is superb. Even leaving tea leaves in pot for a while, the taste is still deliciously mellow. It is said the desserts there are the best of the best. Alas when I visited there, it was 6 celcius outside and I'm too frozen to try matcha ice cream. Totally need to... More

This place is hard to find if you don’t know Japanese. I had to ask around a little bit to find it. But when I did, it was worth it! I had the Shirakawa meal which included matcha soba and shiratama parfait. It looks simple but very good and filling!! The service was great, I really enjoyed it there. I... More

The food here is all matcha based and is really quite good. It is a little on the expensive side so be prepared to spend at least 800 yen per person

Me and a friend went to this cafe on a very hot day. We were quite anxious about locating this place, given how it is hard to find shops in Kyoto if you dont know how the outside looks (this shop was located in a residential area and it looked like the shop was developed from a previous house) and...
