Stopped by for coffee and dessert on the way back to town from the Miyajima ropeway station. The cafe felt rather cozy with only a handful of tables. Servers were very nice, as you would expect from all restaurants/cafes in Japan. We were forced to...More

If you are in Miyajima, you definitely need to stop here! Pasta is delicious and the bread is the best I've ever had! We also tried the gateau au chocolat and it was great! Worth a visit!!
