Went here for cappuccino. We were a bit disappointed about the quality of the coffee (too weak and the micro foam was not as it should be for a proper cappuccino). You can get better coffee in Takayama. Staff is friendly and nice modern place.

We had a nice cup of green tea and a pleasant chat with one of the staff. She spoke extremely good English and told us a bit about Takayama and the region. The Cafe has a more Western design, very modern and a bit hipster.
