Friendly and Relaxing Cafe

Posted on 10 / 29 / 2013

Despite being pretty busy, this cafe is a nice place to hang out. They display local artwork on the walls and the chairs are comfortable. There is only once choice for vegans, but that is more than you will find anywhere else in Onomichi (one of the staff members is a Vegan, which may account for why it is on the menu), and it is filling and delicious. If you are Vegetarian, there are other options such as pizza.

Pros: Delicious local food, Friendly Staff
Cons: Limited options, Limited English
