Shika No Oshiri


On a ten minute walk from Kintetsu Nara station, hidden in a quiet alley on the second floor of a renovated building is this adorable café with a very peculiar name.
The café is called 'Shika No Oshiri Coffee' which literally translates to 'Coffee from a deer's butt'. To drive the point home the cafe's logo shows a deer with poo in the shape of coffee beans falling from it's butt. A visual image, but that is all there is to it. This is not a café selling some new type of coffee like the expensive civet cat poo coffee 'Kopi Luwak'. In fact with a shop name like that you might be even more surprised when you see the interior.
The café is a little difficult to find with only a small sign outside in front of a flight of stairs in the middle of a renovated building shared with a couple of other shops. With the dark wood vertical bars in front of the building and noren (small shop curtains) hanging above the stairs make the entrance even a little harder to see. Going up the stairs and through the small corridor on the right you will find a lovely wooden door at the end of the hallway that leads to the café.
Entering the café you will be welcomed by friendly staff and a cute interior that is quite small and narrow. Immediately on your right you will find the order counter with a glass case with today's sweets and straight ahead on a raised floor is the café area. The cafe area consists of small tables, one larger table facing the window and two counter chairs. The entire café has a female geared atmosphere with DIY style interior that is decorated with dryflowers, stringlights and small deer toys,  as well as unfinished walls and fabric covering the windows.
While the café has coffee in its name the menu offers more soft drinks and sweets than coffee. In fact the café seems to be more geared to younger female audience with marshmallow cocoa, hydrangea soda and various teas. The hydrangea soda is a purple colored soda decorated with flower petals on top. With it comes a small glass of syrup that when poured inside changes the color of the soda which makes for lovely instagram photos.
Shika No Oshiri Coffee is an adorable cafe in central Nara with an interesting decor that could be fun for people who are looking for a something sweet with a peculiar setting.
