Sarasa Nishijin

Report Abuse


Located in Nishijin area, famous for its Nishijin-ori (Nishjin Fabric) industry in Northern Kyoto is this charming café called 'Sarasa Nishijin'. It's the second one to open and one of six other Sarasa shops (we featured Clamp coffee Sarasa before) located throughout Kyoto and is also the most popular one.

Sarasa Nishijin is quite special since it's located inside a renovated public sento (bathhouse). The seating area is divided in three sections.
The cafe has a lunch, a dinner and a sweets menu with plenty of choices for food and drinks. For lunch there is a karaage (fried chicken) plate, Turkish rice, curry lunch and more. For dinner they serve: Napolitan, taco meat rice, mentaiko cream pasta, omuraisu (omelette over rice) and sometimes they also have a vegan/vegetarian dishes.  Depending on the day, for sweets they have cheesecake, parfait, apple walnut cakes and many other delicious goodies.
The café is located on a 20 minute walk from the nearest Karasuma Line's Kuramaguchi station so for people who have walking difficulties its recommended to take the bus. We recommend making a reservation or arrive way before opening time since the café is extremely popular and often has a long waiting lines.
Sarasa Nishijin is a little out of the way but it's interesting interior and exterior alone are reasons enough to visit. The staff is friendly and they serve delicious food.
