Chamama Vege Cafe - Edit

We drove 1.5 hours to try the food and it was worth it. The staff was very kind and helpful even though they were not well versed in english. The cafe had a neat set up. There's more room inside than you would think. So happy we made the time to try this place out. We will definitely go again.

Pros: Reasonable Prices, Extra parking spaces, Kind/Helpfull Staff

Cons: None

Long way but worth it - Edit

Vege Café Chiyamama, Midori 1 chome 12-29, Aomori 030-0845. This was a long walk from Aomori station so worth trying to catch a bus from there (go 13 minutes or 9 stops and get off at the first stop over the big overbridge that takes road 120 over the railway lines). You’’ll be in the vicinity of Midori 1 chome so just walk about until you find block 12 and then building 29. Ask somebody if you find it difficult – and see photos of business card and front of the premises. Hiring a bike would make it easier to get to.

Spacious restaurant with a calm atmosphere on the first (ground) floor of owner’s house. Well patronised the day we went. Staff understood veganism and recommended lunch set C. Macrobiotic style rice and little bowls of various pickles (cabbage with mustard, beans, daikon, seaweed etc plus), a couple of beautifully deep fried ‘mock fish’ cutlets, a bowl of miso soup and a small bowl of salad. Lovely and cleansing.

Hours 11-4 but last orders at 2.30. Not sure about evenings as business card doesn’t mention them. Closed Sundays and public holidays.

Despite not being in the centre of town, well worth visiting for a delicious meal, lovely atmosphere and very helpful staff.

Pros: Good food and more of it than further south, Nice atmosphere and staff, Reasonably priced

Cons: Just a long way from centre of town

A little vegetarian cafe treasure - Edit

This is a cute little cafe with a friendly staff. Even though they don't speak English, they will try hard to assist you. At lunchtime they offer 3 set meals. Set A (¥1480) comes with a drink and dessert. Set B (¥1180) comes with a drink only and set C (¥1080) has neither a drink nor dessert included. The set lunches have 6 items, garnishes and soup. With sets A and B, coffee, hot tea or apple juice are beverage choices. Iced tea is ¥50 extra. Besides being tasty, the food is well presented.
The cafe seats about 35, and has 2 unisex restrooms; both are very clean and are well stocked.
They have some shelf stable items for sale like coffee, tea, soy sauce, etc. In the entry way are gift items for sale including candles, cups, decorative socks.......
It's fairly easy to find as the cafe is only a couple of blocks off of one of the major roads in town. Google street view it, and you'll be fine.
