Location is a little inconvenient though its selection is something. You should note that this bakery is open only Friday and Saturday. The more conditions it gets, the more it makes us wanna take a visit!

Here we come. Parking is available for a few cars in the back.

It is super compact. As I opened the door, the show case was right in front of us and the owner showed up from the back. She explained what’s available this day but I wasn’t sure what to get still. We picked Ciabatta, chocolate bread, and pita bread. Apparently she uses so-called spelt wheat. I would like to try and figure out what differences it makes.

We tried the bread at home. Chocolate bread was crunchy. I liked it. So-called Ciabatta, the owner told us that this would be great with olive oil, so here we go. Hm. It tastes good. Smell of four and perhaps some sourness from natural yeast?

Pita bread was also good. Prices are a little higher than average but it is totally worth it.

Cafe in Bizen City: Udo Coffee

Cafe in Bizen City: Udo Coffee

Hola amigos. We would like to introduce Udo Coffee in Bizen City this time.

Cafe in Bizen City: Udo Coffee

Udo Coffee is run by an owner of a popular cafe named Kinoshita Shoten. Let’s see what differences this place makes.

First of all, it is inside the JR Inbe Station. Inbe is the center of Bizen City (there is no Bizen Station, by the way) where it is famous for Bizenyaki pottery. The cafe is inside the building but right before the gate, so non-passengers can enter as well.

Interior looks nice. Oh hey, look at the view of the platform through the window! Trains pass by every now and then. It reminds us of Tsuji Coffee in Kasaoka City which is also beside the train rail.

We grabbed some chocolate cake and a toast. Of course with coffee (in a Bizenyaki mug!)

Let’s call it a day.

How do you find it? A cafe inside a station is such a catch, isn’t it? Well, not just a catch, it is awesome. Please swing by.
