Has no vegan options at all

We have asked the server if there is anything vegan, she said no. Also the chilli was not on the menu. Suppose they stopped doing it.

Only tried the good coffee!

Didn’t have time to eat there but when I saw the food I wish I had. It looked so good! We enjoyed ice coffee and a soy ice latte. Both were delicious and what a convenient location right in the station.

Pros: Good coffee, Vegan food and drinks, Great service

Cons: Closes quite early

Yummy chilli but soy latte didnt taste of coffee

Thought I would sample the delights of the chilli I had read about on happy cow for breakfast before my long day of travelling and wasnt disappointed. Wasnt waiting long for it and it tasted amazing! Unfortunately the soy latte didnt have a taste of coffee at all. The staff are lovely, very friendly and I found the place reasonably priced.

Pros: Yummy chilli and smiling staff!

Cons: Coffee game seemed weak

Good good, nice cafe

The menu has allergens labelled so it was easy to see the bean chilli is vegan, and staff confirmed. It's ¥700 for chilli with rice. It was very tasty, with chickpeas, kidney beans and some kind of soy mince, although not the biggest portion.
There was a sign on the table to fill in a tourist satisfaction survey. If you do that and show the staff, you get a free coffee bag to take away.
Friendly and welcoming staff.

Quick vegan fix before riding on a train!

This cafe is right underneath of JR Takayama station, so it’s great to have quick bite before riding on a train to your next destination!! The staff is well aware of veganism ask for a soy latte !! Great coffee in the mountain area of Japan!! I loved it!!
