Inoda Coffee Shop is one of the oldest cafe in Kyoto, dating back to 1947 (the “Hoten” – main branch). It is famous for its original blend filtered dripped coffee. The coffee shop also serves coffee that is pre-mixed with sugar and milk.

We visited the Sanjo Branch that was first opened in the 1970s. It has an oval bar where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the masters do what they do best.


We ordered a seasonal “yasai” sandwiches as part of our breakfast. It has a mixed of fresh and pickled vegetables with ham. It is very refreshing especially during a hot day.
