Vegan cafe in Kyoto

This vegan cafe opened in March of 2008 in the same place where Cafe Peace used to be. The interior has been changed to modern and minimalist. It's small with about 6 tables.

The staff speaks some English and offers English menus. The food is an eclectic mix of Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, and even a Mexican rice dish. They offer some sandwiches and smoothies and desserts as well. Prices are generally about 1000 yen per main dish. They do not serve alcohol.

We ate here both nights in Kyoto. Everything was terrific. From a large menu, we chose a teriyaki tempeh sandwich, a set Chinese special, the spring rolls, goreng (with fake egg that was to die for) and the tofu steaks with miso soup. They make a terrific homemade ginger ale with bite. They were our favorite restaurant on our trip to Japan.

They have English menus. You choose your order and go up to the counter to pay at the beginning. After that they serve you at the table. The staff chatted with us about our trip and were really friendly and spoke pretty good English.

The Hyakumanben bus stop is right across the street from the restaurant. (The closest subway station is a 15 minute walk away.)
