Another one up there in my top 10 would have to be efish, a small coffe shop come art gallery just round the corner from Kiyomizu Gojo station. The shop was started up by designer Shin Nishibori, currently well known for his work as a designer within Apple computers. Although Shin no longer owns the cafe a lot of his work is still up for sale there, if your interested you can check out the shop here.

eFish has moved in the last few years and has an amazing location looking over the Kamo river, very relaxing for a stroll during the summer months.

The cafe’s menu is written in both English and Japanese, if you want to take a look follow this link. Although the prices are not cheap, it’s not going to rinse your bank account either! if you are like me and missing proper bacon sandwiches living in Japan this is the only place I have found so far that does them!

At night the shop changes into a chic bar with great chilled out atmosphere providing a great hangout spot for all the creative locals.
