A very uniquely Japanese experience. This is one of the oldest coffee shops in Tokyo and is worth going for the location and decor alone. The food and coffee is excellent too. I would highly recommend this place - but be prepared to queue!
Definitely worth waiting in a line, which moves pretty fast. Coffe was amazing, egg sandwich so simple but still delicious! The French toast was our highlight of a day, we came back 4 days in a row for it :D very polite staff too.
Worth breakfast stop.
Coffee was good, nothing overly special. They had a handful of simple breakfast sandwhiches available which were good (think soft white bread with eggs, ham).
The true standout was the French Toast! Delicious, and definitely the right choice over the pancake.
Quaint and cozy establishment. We ordered “Egg Toast”. Expect scrambled eggs on toast with a light slathering of ketchup/wisabi sauce. French toast is airy and delicious, though the middle was undercooked for our liking. Pancakes are good but not noteworthy, a little too dense. Coffee...More
Anyone who loves Japanese coffee has to drop by Smart Coffee for a break on their wanderings through the back streets of Teramachi. It's one of Kyoto's old coffee houses, passed on from father to son to grandson. Superb Japanese filter coffee and simple choice...More
We had French toast and maple syrup that was delicious, kids had scrambled egg sandwiches and pancakes and loved them. Fairly small place and limited menu so be prepared to queue, if you fancy an egg related brunch this is the place for you!
We had a really great brunch at Smart Coffee. We ordered one portion of French toast and one portion of hotcakes (pancakes). The French toast really is amazing, so soft and gooey. Hotcakes were also really nice, although I found them slightly dry after the...More
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
