“eat here if you are visiting ginkakuji”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This cafe is amazing, and was an unexpected highlight of our vacation. We were on the way to Ginkakuji Temple and spotted a handwritten board advertizing the cafe, so we took a small detour around a corner to check it out. The main thing to say is that the food here is *delicious*. It is the best meal that I had for years. It's a raw food cafe, but don't be put off if you did not try raw food before. We had a salad which consisted of about half-a-dozen items on a single plate including 'pizza' (the base was made with onion which might sound weird but was great) and 'pasta' (made with zucchini). Every single thing on the plate was good. We followed up with a raw chocolate dessert which might just be the best chocolate thing that I ever ate.

The owner (maybe) is very friendly and has good English, and she took the time to explain to us about raw food and the menu. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing. Combine this with a Ginkakuji visit and enjoy...
