My friend and I went to this cafe for a light meat in the afternoon. The place is extremely cozy and it serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Their menu is very simple, however I tried their 'Green Tea Pasta' and it was heavenly!!! The taste of this food is so incredible, it's a combination of Japanese flavor married... More

Most of us don't take breakfast too seriously especially on working weekdays but not for my father who takes his meals regularly. This is also a good thing when we are traveling together as we would wake up early to have proper quality breakfast. One good place that I would highly recommend for breakfast is Iyemon Salon, a modern Japanese... More

We have had our booking a month ago, telling them that we also have a baby with her pushchair. We went there half... More

We had a lovely Matcha tea with wagashi the typical Japanese tea, very sweet, to be eaten before drinking the slightly bitter powder green tea. The cafe is pretty, rather spacious abd - I dare say - typical Japanese. A wonderful treat offered from my Japanese friends.

We loved this place and visited for lunch one day and returned for dinner the following. The space is beautifully designed and has a lovely relaxed yet funky vibe and friendly service. Try and sit at the back - which looks onto a small courtyard - if you can. Lunch menu was quite short, but my rice bowl topped with... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch at around 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon and it was still quite busy, but we were seated after about a 10 minute wait. They had an English menu and provided us with their fresh tea of the day (no charge) right away. They had several lunch sets to choose from and I... More

Iyemon is a famous brand of Japanese tea produced by Suntory, and the Iyemon Salon is possibly the best location to enjoy it, along with a tasty selection of perfectly suited food of course! The tea here does not just come hot and wet like we know it here in the UK, it also comes in the form of cakes,... More

I often had breakfast here on nearly one week we stayed in Kyoto. The food was nice, especially the traditional cake. I couldn't remmember the name of dozens of cakes I ate but i can say that most of the cakes they have really nice. They are perfectly matched with Janpanese traditional tea. Drinking tea and enjoy the crowded scene... More
