If you really love mochi, this place could be your second home. They basically serve lots of freshly made mochi - if you are walking and eating, try their "warabi-mochi", if you want to sit down and chill for a little, try their Ozouni (a little similar to miso soup, but with white miso based soup and their mochi!), their ice cream, grilled mochi (sweet or spicy), shaved ice, and more!

This place is famous for their olive oil! Their croquette is fried using olive oil (bless them for making us feel less guilty), and they also have olive oil soft serve too. Very casual style cafe. Try their Yuba-cream croquette to taste Kyoto.
