Only wish was this placed opened earlier! The only decent coffee in Hakuba, lucky we were staying right next door. Muffins were also excellent. Authentic service, very genuine.

I stayed in Hakuba from January - March 2016. We visited Sounds Like Café most days for their amazing coffee and did treat ourselves with their chicken burgers from time to time. Best to get in earlier during the day as they tend to sell out of their chicken burgers!! Must try.

We went to the cafe on 3 occasions and the service, food and coffee were excellent each time. We took our three children (2, 4 and 6yrs) and the staff were very accommodating with them.

The fact that it's so well reviewed caught our attention. We were staying in Happo-one and decided to take a walk to Echoland and found our way to this gem cafe. It's quite popular amongst tourists and locals. Staff there were polite - we were told to expect a 30min wait for our food even before we were seated. We... More

Great cafe and great service! The burgers they served definitely satisfied 6 hungry hungover boys. They were very busy and still managed to deliver at a reasonable time, very cool and cosy cafe.

Came here after skiing for 2 days and needed a rest. Was very busy during afternoon, but was seated within 10 minutes. Ordered a banana & sesame smoothie, coffee shake and cheese cake. Best choices ever. Cheese cake came with ice cream and the shakes were incredible. Saw many other diners ordering burgers and they looked awesome. Must try it... More
