After lunch I stopped by a cute cafe that is also near my home but had never stopped to visit before. I was again pleasantly surprised. It’s called Cafe 1001, and seems to specialize in chocolate mint cakes and drinks (perhaps the menu is seasonal?). I ordered the mint chocolate cheesecake and the chocolate-marshmallow mint milk. I love choco-mint anything and these didn’t disappoint. Cake was soft and rich while the mint milk was hot, creamy (frothy?), and a little spicy. The chocolate marshmallows were a nice touch. Overall, I really liked this place, but the service was not great. I was the only customer the whole time I was there, and it felt like the master would have rather been doing something else. Not so welcoming at first.


Fabulous chocolate-mint cafe with a parfait, cheesecake, and hot and iced drinks with the theme. It is in a cozy machiya and the service was friendly and fast. I loved the rules on reducing noise level of talking because it made the visit very comfortable and peaceful.


For a great rainy day tour break! Had coffee and some excellent parfaits. The decor is traditional Japanese coffeeshop, mixed with a bookstore.


Translated from Japanese:

I went there because I heard that you can eat sweets mainly made with chocolate mint. I ate a chocolate mint parfait. There's a cute bear cookie on top and you can't see the back, but the chocolate cake is hidden and it's delicious...


Translated from Japanese:

Visiting a store that cannot be missed as a Kansai Chocomin party. I went there just before 12:00 on a weekday, around the same time they opened, and I was the only customer. I was prepared to line up so I was lucky! There seem to be some detailed rules, so check out the website in advance along with the menu...


Translated from Japanese:

This place is said to be Kyoto's ``holy place for chocolate mint.'' This is an old townhouse in Nishijin. The atmosphere is nice. Since it was close to Christmas, they had a Christmas version of the parfait, so I went for that. Of course it's a mint ice cream parfait. ...
