Happened across this excellent historic restaurant by accident just walking off the crowded lane and eyeing the old stone architecture. Inside over 100 years old and not much changed. Had good lunch at a fair price but limited menu.

“Good food, but NOT vegetarian ”
We went to this tofu restaurant and we ordered the vegetable curry and miso pasta. It does not say anywhere on the English menu, but we found out both dishes contained meat :( it was tasty though so if you're not vegetarian I would recommend this place.

I'm impressed with the matcha shaved ice with red beans. My son ordered a hot sandwich and he loved it

“A haven from the hoards”
After walking for a couple of hours as we negotiated the streets near Kiyiomizudera we were looking for respite from the growing number of tourists, turned into a quiet lane to fine a beautiful old building with heavy wooden architecture and an English menu sign out front. Very formal (shoes off)..., seated at heavy wooden tables. Menu not extensive but our food was tasty if not great. Service was with a smile - the rest rooms very clean - not too costly - and we were on our way.

“Lovely architecture, food ok”
This lovely structure was built in 1941 in secession style. Used to be the home of a famous pottery maker. It was worth the visit to admire the wooden structure and mosaic table in the cafe. Came here for a quick break from sightseeing. Very close to kiyomizudera. Definitely a cozy place for lunch... or coffee. We ordered the vegetation pasta in soy, hamburger steak, and a vegetarian curry. Each came with rice and a small dessert. We also ordered coffee after lunch and it was served with a small cookie. Food was ok but not spectacular. The good thing was it was not crowded and we could rest our feet. There is a painting exhibition on the 2nd floor. I would recommend going to the exhibition and see the architecture without going into cafe.
