乳児連れのふらり旅で立ち寄ったカフェ。出発が遅くなったので中休み直前の来店になってしまいました。そのため本当は食事メニューは終了とのことでしたが、、お店の方々が、カレーはなんとか出せるということだったので無理いって注文。待つことしばし。出てきたのは2種類のカレーがのったプレート。一口。優しい味、おいしい!ご飯にのった松の実の食感と甘めの野菜カレーが見事に調和してる。次にひき肉のキーマカレーを一口。こちらもおいしい!ちょっと辛めのルーで、プレートの中でバランスがとっても良い! 乳児連れだとなかなかプラン通りには動けないことが多いけれど、優しいお店の方のおかげでおいしいご飯にありつけました、ありがとうございました‼ Although we arrived around the end of the lunch time, the staff member of this cafe kindly managed to serve a plate of curry for our family. There were a 2 curry source on the plate; mild vegetable curry and spicy keema curry. Pine nuts on the rice matched with ether curry, very yumyum. Travelling with baby is... More

First, try the Japanese beer with Japanese snacks and then you choose one of the delicious options they have for lunch. They also serve coffee if you are not that hungry, but I strongly recommend you try the food! Surely this place is one of the best options around!

The place and atmosphere were very relaxing. If you want to have nice coffee, then this is the place for you at Shimaonsen. Also they serve very good food like curry rice and pasta ramen ! It was unique and yummy ! I will definitely come back again.

If you're visiting Shima Onsen then check out this little cafe on the main street. It has an upstairs area overlooking the bar counter and view to the river. I visited on a Sunday lunch and enjoyed the curry set with excellent cappucino. The curry was two flavours, a sweet Japanese style beef mince and the other a coconut based... More

This was one of the few restaurants that was open on the day we went (a Wednesday). We tried their pasta, salad, drinks, and dessert--all were delicious and very affordable! The staff was super friendly and they had a menu in English, with pictures. It was the perfect afternoon lunch stop after a busy day.

We chanced upon this cafe while exploring the vicinity prior dinner time & we decided to have cappuccino, tea & cheese cake just for starter & also to keep us warm from the cold winter evening, everything was excellent. So the next day after checking out, we'd decided to go there for lunch & for the coffee & cheese cake... More
