Mid-way between Oku station and the modern Setouchi Library, Kinoshita Café is a hidden gem for any coffee lovers and deliciously fresh food aficionados. The coffee beans are carefully selected from countries around the globe, such as Indonesia, Brazil, Congo and so many more, and are lovingly roasted in Kinoshita’s own coffee roaster, making it one of the most delicious coffees you will taste in Japan. Add to it one of their generous BLET (bacon, lettuce, egg and tomato) sandwiches, or ragout pancakes, and maybe even one of their lip-licking desserts if you are feeling a bit cheeky. And there you have it: the perfect lunch break!
