Hoo, pronounced as 'phewww' as a sigh of relief is a stylish cafe that opened in May 2023 and is Loose Kyoto's second branch. Hoo sits in a renovated machiya in a quiet neighborhood, on an eight minute walk from Karasuma Line - Marutamachi Station.

Occupying a renovated machiya, Hoo catches your eye with its cashmere colored stucco exterior, large window with a clear view on the interior inside and stadium seats in front of the cafe. Inside you'll discover a two-story space, with the kitchen and order counter situated on the first floor, and a small seating area for up to 10 people on the second floor. Above the kitchen, an atrium allows natural light to cascade through, adding to the café's inviting atmosphere. The interior design embraces simplicity, with exposed mudwalls and a ceiling left uncovered, creating a raw and authentic atmosphere. Handmade tables, featuring natural hardwood table tops, and tree trunks repurposed as seats, contribute to Hoo's unique charm.

When it comes to the menu, Hoo caters to coffee enthusiasts with a variety of options including classic espresso drinks like lattes, americanos, and mochas, or soft drinks like, soda, matcha latte and houjicha latte. Hoo also offers additional options such as decaf, oat milk, and soy milk for a small extra charge.

With its stylish ambiance and a menu that caters to both coffee lovers and dessert enthusiasts, Hoo is the ideal spot for a leisurely coffee break.
