Stylish Cafe in Bizen City: Coharuni

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce stylish cafe in Biizen City called Coharuni this time.

Stylish Cafe in Bizen City: Koharuni

Pass through a view of traditional houses and here it comes Coharuni. Seeing a modern building like this in a place like Bizen is odd but I find it cool as well. Walking distance since it is not far from Bizen central. Let’s go investigate!

 

As I enter, it’s so bright and clean. Stylish, I’d say. We gotta order drinks before getting to the seats.

 

OK, let’s take a seat. Hey look out, this table is neat! I guess we could play with it while waiting for our drinks.

However, we learned that this store is owned by an architect and turns out, and it is one of his works for sale. So staff asked us to move to another table. What a shame. >x<

Trying to stay cool….

 

Seats are all facing a tree in the middle.

 

Iced coffee (300 yen) with a scone (200 yen). Mine came with local honey and Mrs. Wada’s was with blueberry from Hiruzen, Maniwa City (where we usually camp). Pretty good.

 

Gallery

There’s an art gallery upstairs. The architect (I suppose he’s the owner) showed us his works. I sense that he’s full of passion for art. Great. He told us that he designed this cafe itself also. The miniature version of this cafe he made for design was in so much detailed.

Other stuff is rather art. Though he is considering producing something more practical/useful. That’s a good idea. Heh heh.

 

Let’s call it a day.

Cafe Belle maAdo in Ushimado (Setouchi City)

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!
