“The best all around cafe in Okinawa!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

This is a great place to make new friends, have great drinks, awesome food, and absorb the local culture. I would recommend it to anyone. You will not regret it. Kaori, Mattu, and Owan are the best in Okinawa. Love this place!

“Best Gin and Tonic on Okinawa”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Each item from Kaka-fe has something special about it. Whether it's the Samarai chicken in its spicy sauce, the grilled to perfection grilled cheese, the homemade plum wine or the gin and tonic made with hand squeezed shikawa- this café takes the time do it right! You can sit inside at the bar next to Walter and watch the owner and her silent partner whip up a hot cup of Vietnamese coffee, balance on a stool while deciding where your dollar bill will be hung, or hang outside watching the gate two shinangins! Even the bathroom is a true Okinawan experience! ;-)

“Good food, good drinks, good people”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Like everybody said, the grilled cheese sandwich is the food item that really stands out. The cheesecake is honestly on the same level as New York City. It is incredible. What really makes this place stand out are the people. The owner, Kaori, is such a pleasure to talk to. On the weeknights Mattoo (sp?) is also good company. Overall, it is a shining gem in Okinawa City and I highly recommend stopping in and getting a grilled cheese, followed by cheesecake. Maybe have some Walter too (you will know it when you see it)

“Best little Cafe on Gate 2 street! Ask for Grilled Cheese!!”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

This cafe has the best grilled cheese sandwiches and coffee/tea. Daytime hours are laid back with locals and USA guests. Night time you can have a lot of fun talking to the owner- Kaori. Seating is indoors or you can sit at cafe style tables outside.

Also on the menu- japanese fast food (taco rice), cheese cake or apple pie and if you want to have a drink... beer or habu. Just to be clear- this is not a bar and you will not be harassed by juicy girls or hostesses. This is a cafe locally owned by a very nice person.

I highly recommend that you take the time to visit and have a snack.
