⭐3.6 Payment.Credit card when making online reservation

Maybe I was expecting too much...
The first item is a special cake. For the second item, you can sample about 10 different products (baked sweets and chocolates) sold at the store.
Shimehaha gelato.

Visiting the store for the first time was exciting and fun, and the desserts were delicious, but there were no repeat customers, and I thought the main cafe would be enough.


Sweets in Kyoto after a long time,
Came here looking for something to eat.

[About the store]
・Opened in 2019🎉
・Dessert course restaurant that requires reservations

[Dessert course (alcoholic drink included)] ¥4,200
・I've been to the main store before, but this is my first time at Hanare!
・It's really delicious, really.
・The first plate is the same for everyone, but after that, you can choose as many chocolates and baked goods as you like from what's in front of you.
(No two pieces of the same item)
・Of course I ate all the types, but the white coconut chocolate and the financier were extremely delicious.
・You'll be pretty full, so I recommend going without eating anything lol
・However, perhaps because the ingredients are good, it doesn't feel heavy on the stomach at all, and it doesn't leave a sweet taste in your mouth!
・I requested red wine and it was really delicious!
It's French 🇫🇷 and goes well with chocolate!
・Since it's red wine, I imagined the glass to have a large mouth, but is it a champagne glass? I was concerned about something like
・As it was a variety of anniversaries, I had already filled out the reservation form, so they wrote a plate for me!
thank you! !

[Atmosphere inside the store]
・Only 6 seats at the counter only
・Experience an extraordinary experience in a special space
・Inside the store you can feel the warmth of wood

[Sakity one point]
・Reservation online from the URL posted on the official Instagram
・Approximately 80% of the customers are from Kanto.
・Because the main store is famous, Hanare is a hidden gem where you can easily get reservations.
-The content seems to change every two months.
・I think it would be better for one person or two people.
・I thought it would be nice to go alone on weekdays and spend some time relaxing because it feels even more special.
・The chef was a really wonderful person! I want to go again! !


April 2023
This is my first visit in a year.
This time, the timing was perfect and the place was reserved.
This is my favorite restaurant in Kyoto, no matter how many times I visit.
I'm full, so I visit here for lunch instead of skipping breakfast, or during snack time after eating breakfast and skipping lunch.
It will really fill you up, so I recommend adjusting accordingly.
I sometimes hear that the prices are high, but I think they are reasonable.
Alcohol is the main dessert that would cost around 1,800 to 2,000 yen if purchased separately. Moreover, they have a good sense of alcohol selection.
Also, one dessert from each case that I want to try. It may not seem like it will fill you up, but it really does fill you up,
I don't think you can afford this price if you live in Tokyo. In fact, at restaurants in Tokyo, one main dessert and a glass of wine usually costs around 5,000 yen. The atmosphere is also better here.
To be honest, I'd like it to remain a hidden gem, so I'll give it 4 stars.

Revisit in August 2022
Make a reservation for the dessert course (4,500 yen) that includes alcohol. If it includes a soft drink, it will be 3500 yen.
I like to enjoy desserts with alcohol, so I asked for pairings for each dessert. I ordered about 3 or 4 drinks in addition to the 1 drink included in the course, and it cost less than 10,000 yen per person.
Some alcoholic beverages are a bit expensive, so
I wonder if I could talk to the staff about that.
I was able to get the pairing right at a price that fit my budget.
Next time I go to Kyoto, I'm not sure whether to use the main branch or Hanare.

First visit in winter 2022
I like the desserts at Kakimoto main store(?),
I found out that there is a separate store called Hanare and made my first reservation.
The main dessert here seems to change every two months. The system is such that you choose your main course and several desserts from a glass case, but if you have the stomach, you can eat them all, so it felt like a great deal.
Also, if the timing is right, it seems like it can be reserved for private use, which I was very grateful for given the current circumstances.
As for the head office staff,
Regarding the food (dessert this time)
There's no shortage of restaurants that can tell you exactly which drink will go well with it.
On this trip, I only went to the main store to take the cake home, but I want to use both there and there again, so it's a bit of a problem (lol)
