Kitaoji Roastery Lab



Located in North Kyoto on a short walking distance from Kyoto Botanical Gardens and Kitaoji station is 'Kita Oji Roastery Lab' a new cafe that opened in September 2022. The cafe is located on the groundfloor of a new building in the shopping arcade along the Kitaoji Dori.

As the name says, the cafe's concept is a coffee 'laboratory' and with that has a sterile modern and minimal interior that uses mostly concrete and metal. The kitchen counter wall and cupboards however are coated with Kyoto Kurotani washi (Japanese handmade paper), which is apparently one of the strongest in the world. To complete the 'lab' look the staff wears long white lab coats which features a diamond logo that represents a perfect unique cut shape which represents coffee drops that also each have a perfect shape.

Besides the interior, Kitooji Roastery Lab also uses stylish ceramics for its drinks and foods made by Kasamayaki in Ibaragi prefecture and have a unique design.

Naturally the menu consists mainly of coffee including: drip coffee, aeropress, espresso (cafe latte 550 yen), shakerato and espresso tonic. All in various blends and milk, soy milk or oat milk are optional extras for cold brews. For the non coffee drinkers there is also apple juice. For sweets they offer delicious cornbread and coffee jelly.

Please note: The store only accepts electronic payments.
