It was late afternoon on a cold December day and we longed for a warm place to stop for some hot tea and cake. But most cafes had already closed or featured big plastic ice cream cones outside. So we were delighted to see Miyakeshoten...open with a menu posted, featuring cakes and other sweets. Inside, the traditional house exuded charm with much wood and low tables without chairs. We opted to sit at the unusual communal table with benches just inside the entrance. The curvy functional piece of art actually worked well in the much earlier-era setting. Staff greeted us immediately and we received menus in English. There were set menus and also individual offerings. We both chose set menus and thoroughly enjoyed our tea and homemade cakes. I ordered chocolate and my husband went for the pound cake. A woman nearby managed to finish the biggest parfait I had ever seen. Before leaving, we bought two slices of lemon cake to go. Throughout our stay, we received the gracious service that we have become accustomed to in Japan. I noted that the cafe is open for lunch and offers a special curry dish. Packaged coffee and preserves are some of the items for sale here.More

I saw a healthy queue outside which was a good sign as it was generally fairly quiet in Kurashiki so put my name in the list and did not have to wait long.Very friendly staff and a pleasantly simple menu to choose from - Essentially...a curry rice lunch with desert of the day if you want it and a selection of drinks ( mostly soft but the one bottled beer on offer was very good ) plus ice creams etc. The curry lunch was very good and great value.More

Lunch with my younger son and brother-in-law. This place opens at 11:00am, but it is recommended that you write your name on the waiting list well before that so that you can get a table at this very popular restaurant when it opens. We had...Miyake Curry & Rice Sets, two with Peach Frozen Parfaits and one with Peach Shaved Ice. They are very good combinations.More

They have an English menu but I recommend the set of...a vegetable Japanese curry and cake with drink. The curry is very tasty and the cake light and not too sweet.More

It’s a perfect pLace to have a authentic Japanese homemade flavor curry rice in a historical architecture. Price and service are friendly enough to have me come back to visit! It’s a worth of waiting on line to taste!

Had lunch here on a November weekday. It was about a 30 minute wait. The curry was fantastic. I usually order my curry mild and i dd not find it too hot. What a great place. The desserts looked so good that we ordered the...Curry à la cart and then chose 2 different desserts to share. The Curry À la cart also came with a delicious soup.More

They only offer one actual curry dish -- vegetable curry -- but it is delicious and very filling! The desserts are also good. Definitely a good place to eat lunch at while in Kurashiki.

The only good thing traveling in the winter time is probably that we didn't have to wait (or wait too long) for popular restaurants/attractions. We got a huge table for just 3 of us on the tatami. My daughter loves the places where we eat...on the tatami. I think that is her excuse not to sit properly. They only serve curry rice for meal, and we were worried it would be too spicy for my 6-year-old daughter. The waiter was so friendly and thoughtful and gave my daughter a tiny scoop of the curry sauce to try out for taste. It was not spicy at all, and we, including my daughter, love it very much. The dessert that came with the meal set was also very delicious. The staff in the restaurant came out to help us having our photos taken with the restaurant without asking!! We are really touched by the amazing services. This place is highly recommended!More

The shop only sell curry rice. A 5 stars curry rice you ever get in Japan. The desert is also excellent. A must try when you are at Okayama.

This cafe serves several types of desserts and coffees, but only one meal, a vegetable curry. It was unexpectedly filling and extremely delicious, with a sweet, complex flavor with many chunks of artfully presented vegetables. Dessert was a highlight, the best shaved ice (kakigori) we've...had this year. The huge bowls were filled with fluffy ice and plenty of flavorings. The fruit parfait was also generous with lots of fruit throughout. Though there was a wait to get in, we did not feel rushed to eat quickly, and were able to enjoy the tatami rooms in the refurbished old house. The atmosphere added to the charm of the entire experience; definitely a place to go back.More
