Hello world. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce a compact cafe nearby Okayama Station.

People (pronounced as Piipuru) stands quite close to Okayama’s bar area where many drunks hang out naturally. We found this place just by accident and couldn’t help peeping. Ended up stepping in. We were curious if this place would be non-smoking since it is near the bar area and take a look at a store next door.

Tabaco Mania!

Turns out, it has a non-smoking sign at the door. Hard to believe though.

As soon as we entered the cafe, a waiter popped out from nowhere as well as a waitress. Where the hell were they hiding? Apparently their specialty is waffles. The waitress also kept suggesting ‘Soft Yogurt’ which seems to be yogurt with fresh fruits on top. OK, let’s get waffles and some coffee this time.

Coffee is good but waffles taste…OK (I am being honest). Not sure how the soft yogurt is.

It was only us in the store first. The waitress told us that more people would come in later after drinking. Ah, so that’s how it works here. This place opens until late for this reason. In fact, some drunks came in soon after but it remained non-smoking. Coolio.

Let’s call it a day.

Kaffee Barnack in Okayama City

Kaffee Barnack in Okayama City

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce Kaffee Barnack in Okayama City this time.

Kaffee Barnack in Okayama City

Kaffee Barnack is located in the Aoe area (Kita ward), along the Route 30. The building looks not so visible but I wouldn’t miss it.

As you enter the cafe, a lady serves you over the counter. I suppose she’s the owner. It has huge selection of coffee beans displayed on the wall which is about 30. Some coffee beans look unfamiliar like …Mexico? I don’t think I’ve tried one.

So I’ve got this Mexican coffee with some pastry.

Speaking of atmosphere, I didn’t feel much pressure but this cafe isn’t a place for a long stay. A bit like a bar, I suppose. Drink and go. However, we were a bit amazed by its selection and our coffee was actually pretty good. Something different from regular coffee we have.

Let’s call it a day.
