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.

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.

See you around!
