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.

Reasonable priced lunch in a relaxing restaurant. Lots of different teas to choose from and a wonderful Japanese sweets selection.

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!

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

The restaurant is situated on Sanjo-dori which is one of the most interesting streets in Kyoto (especially for those who appreciate Meiji era buildings) I ate breakfasts and drank ocha (they're focused on tea) there for the whole stay in the city and I just loved the food, the tea, the staff and wonderful relaxed atmosphere. There's a feeling of... More
