Okashi Tsukuru

Report Abuse


In Northern Kyoto, between Kinkakuji and Shimogamo shrine is Okashi Tsukuru, a kyomachiya renovated into a stylish café.

During the renovation the exterior of the café was mostly left untouched. It has that typical Kyoto look and feel with the mostly dark brown wood façade and the dark grey Japanese rooftiles. It has a large glass display window through which you can get a glimpse of the interior inside.

The interior of the café on the other hand has been completely renovated and has a modern style with quite a unique layout for a café. It has a long wooden L-shaped counter with high class wood/leather chairs surrounding the kitchen, similar to an izakaya or sushi restaurant. You order the food and then you can see the cook prepare your order right in front of you which gives the cafe an intimate feeling.

Okashi Tsukuru has a small menu but it's options are of high quality. They have a selection of toasts, fruit-sandwich (using seasonal fruits), pancake, donut and a scone that comes with butter and red bean paste. Everything prepared carefully in front of you and served on stylish tableware.

The scone is fantastic and tastes like no other scones we've eaten before. They're freshly baked and when you take a bite it's crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside. That in combination with the butter and red bean paste makes it a tasteful delight.

Okashi Tsukuru is a lovely renovated kyomachiya with a stylish interior where food is carefully prepared in front of you and tastes absolutely fantastic. The service is also wonderful, which makes this a highly recommended café with a high revisit value.
