Take the time to visit this cute traditional cafe. A stones throw from Higashiyama subway station, in a quiet side street, sit on traditional tatami mats and enjoy great coffee and homemade foods! Gen the owner speaks great English and is super friendly!!

We stopped here on the way back to our hotel...lured in by the sign for pita pizza. They were so gracious and the pizza was delicious. It was served with a small salad and homemade yogurt. Wonderful find on a quiet side street in Kyoto.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of

Cafe Green Door is a small eatery tucked away in the middle of the Gion district. It lies right of Sanjo street, near Higashiyama station. Stop by for a good american coffee, one of the monthly specialties, or when you're in need for a healthy lunch.
