Karo fukuiku coffeeroaster



On a short walk from either Midosuji Line Showacho station or Tanimachi Line Fuminosato station is a lovely hidden gem called cafe 'Karo Fukuiku Coffeeroaster'.

The café opened in December 2015 and is run by a young couple. The name Karo ( 珈露 - かろ)means ‘coffee dew’ and was the name of a café where one of the owners worked at in the past. When the owner of that café retired he let them take over the name and some of the roasting equipment. However since their first shop didn't have space for some of their coffee equipment they moved to their current location in Showacho.

The café sits in a small two floor building tucked away under the JR Hanwa line traintracks that was formerly a house and a storage place of which you can still find remnants in the café. The exterior consists of weathered wood and corrugated  sheets with a sliding door in the middle.
Inside you will find a narrow but cozy interior stuffed with antiques and coffee. You will have to climb a narrow steep stairs to the café area on the second floor, watch your head because the ceiling at the top of the stairs is low. On the second floor you will find a lovely showa style retro interior with many antiques and retro furniture. There are mostly seats for one or two persons so it’s not recommended for large groups and the café encourages a peaceful atmosphere without loud talking.
Karo’s menu consists of a hot sandwich with either ham/cheese, tartar egg or red bean paste. There are also toasts (cinnamon, honey and jam), various sweets and curry dishes.
Karo is a cozy café with a lovely interior that should be approached carefully if you believe the googlemap reviews. We had no issues on our visit. Some shopstaff need a different approach. The café is worth to visit for the interior alone.
御堂筋線の昭和町駅や谷町線の文の里駅から近くに素敵な穴場「karo 馥郁焙煎工房」があります。
