Kaikado Is Serving up Style (& Tea) in Kyoto

Tea Kyoto Kansai

For 40 years an old government building had remained vacant. Originally built in 1927, the Western-style concrete space had been used as a garage and administration office until it closed in the mid-1970s. But last year a group of young craftsmen decided to revitalize the space and turn it into a café that would also function as an outlet for showcasing the work of young Japanese craftsmanship. Inside, you’ll find a full menu of coffee (from Japanese roaster Nakagawa Wani Coffee) and black tea (from Postcard Teas London), as well as Kaikado’s own green teas. The café also serves snacks like cheesecake, breads and toast.

We are so excited for this new twist on a old establishment right in the heart of Kyoto. And the stunning pictures are worth the trip alone. Check out Spoon & Tamago at the link below to see them in their glory.
