Interior
It’s a little dark inside, a bit like a movie theater. As you enter, you hear classical music being played by an antique audio system. Outstanding. This atmosphere is something you can’t feel without being there! (Oops, I got carried away?)

 

Foods
We got this coffee and a cake. It tasted great. Besides the music would add extra flavor to it…..(got carried away again)

 

Pick your Favorite Classical Music
You know what? Why don’t you play your favorite classical music? It has variety of classical music records. Pick a record and the owner would be willing to play it for you.. Make your self at home.

 

Lastly

How do you find it? It was a cool experience especially in a city like Shimotsui. Although we aren’t knowledgeable enough of classical music, we felt we’d come back some time. Totally worth a visit.

OK, let’s call it a day.

See you around!

There’s a nice photo spot near by also! Nice views with the Great Seto Bridge.

Hi there it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce you a double-decker bus cafe in Okayama this time.

The Double-Decker Bus Cafe in Okayama: Montague

It is located on public highway (Nishi-bypas) in Okayama City. I’d passed by many times and always thought it was an abandoned bus. Turns out, it is a bus cafe!

Step through the (bus) door then a waiter (not the guy in the picture below. Hehe), the owner would be waiting over the counter. He’d welcome and lead us to seats upstairs. The owner told us that it took him a year for renovating this bus turning it into a cafe! That must’ve been a lot of work.

Tada. It looks quite nice, huh? Let’s have a seat. I suppose the tables were installed for this cafe but some seats seem to be the original bus seats. Very cool. Some extra interiors match as well.

Here it comes. These are coffee, melon soda, cheese cake, and a muffin, I think. See this table is like a travel baggage? Hehe, cool.

I recommend to visit this place at night because it feels more relaxing and the car lights (passing) kinda look cool as well.

How do you find it? I found the food (sweets and drinks) pretty good and the bus itself is surely cool and entertaining. Please take a visit when you get a chance!

See you around!
