Cafe Kinoshita Shoten (Setouchi City)

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce Cafe Kinoshita Shoten this time.

Cafe Kinoshita Shoten (Setouchi City)

Kinoshita Shoten is known as one of the best roasters, often seen on magazines or books as reference in Okayama. We have seen it many times (even on TV sometime). There is no reason not to take a visit huh?

The cafe itself is not so visible. We followed the Google maps direction but couldn’t tell until we took a closer look. FYI, free parking is available.

It was after lunch time but still crowded. We sat at the counter seats. Alright, let’s grab something.

Coffee is surely good. We just couldn’t stay long because of the crowd. That’s dilemma for popular cafes, I suppose. I am not being negative but we have to be sure that we got enough time for lining up.

Hola amigos. Soy senor Wada. I would like to introduce Cafe Belle maAdo in Ushimado (Setouchi City) this time.

Cafe Belle maAdo in Ushimado (Setouchi City)

Belle maAdo is in the Ushimado area of Setouchi City. Quite close to Cafe EASE. Their specialty is galette. Galette is a French cuisine which is like buckwheat-flour pancakes with a savory filling. Not so major in Japan but sounds fancy. Why don’t we go investigate?

Here we are. Seems that the owners (a couple) live downstairs, so go up the stairs to the store entrance.

 

It was very busy since it was around lunch time. How is that possible to run this by two? Anyway let’s get something to drink and eat. It serves dessert gallete as well but most of menu is for a meal.

I got their standard gallete with ham, cheese, and an egg. I found crunchiness from buckwheat pretty good. Had a coppa joe after eating as well.

 

Mrs. Wada had this dessert galette with diced apple and nuts. Yum yum.

 

Nice view.

Lastly

How do you find it? We liked the place but one thing we noticed is that the owners are too busy to communicate with customers. It is not my business but I hope they would slow down a bit…

See you around!
