During our visit in Kasaoka City from my last post, I wanted to go to a cafe before going back to Okayama City. I found this one cafe not too far from Kasaoka Bayfarm. It’s actually just few minutes of walk from JR Kasaoka Station. The cafe’s name is Tsuji Coffee. Now, shall we have our coffee time in Kasaoka?

Located in the shopping street, next to JR Kasaoka Station

 

It’s a small-size cafe that serves coffee with their own roasted beans. It can accommodate up to 10 customers. The location is pretty cool, one side of the cafe faces towards the railway, so you’ll have a clear view of the trains passing by.

Coffee and Dessert Menu

They have their own blend and lineup of single-origin coffee beans. For desserts, it says to ask the staff for details.

Kasaoka City manhole

Addition to our Japan manhole collection and this colored fire hydrant cover too. The design shows an image of kabutogani (カブトガニ), horseshoe crab. It seems kabutogani is the symbol of Kasaoka City. There’s even horseshoe crab museum that we passed on the way to Kasaoka Bayfarm.

This is our previous cafe hopping if you haven’t checked yet.

Enter HONEST COFFEE

It looks like an ordinary cafe, doesn’t it? Well, not super entertaining but sure it’d be relaxing on the other hand. I wouldn’t feel much pressured to step in.

Coffee and Sweets

Quiet but not a dull place. Nice atmosphere, I’d say.

I got a cup of coffee with a fruit roll cake.

760 yen in total. Wow, good deal, isn’t it?

Note:
Smoking is NOT allowed in this place. A very good point, that is.

Coffee Beans for Sale

I am not sure if they roast coffee beans but at least grind. Varieties of coffee beans are available for take out.

Snacks are also available.

 

Lastly

This place isn’t for staying all day but ideal for chit-chat! I’d recommend. I have to admit it was honest enough. Where’s your favorite cafe or any place to hang out in your city? Feel free to leave a comment!

See you around!
