Pronto Caffe And Bar For Coffee, Drinks And Pasta Any Time Of Day
Pronto is a famous chain in Japan that has 267 addresses accross the country. Pronto is hard to define: let's say that it's not quite a restaurant, not quite a cafe and not quite a bar, but a bit of every one of those at once, which means you can go there at any time of day and you'll find what you're looking for. This might be why Pronto is such a popular place!
Pronto defines itself as a Caffe (Italian syle cafe) and Bar, but you can also find an array of fairly hearty meals at a reasonable price.
During the day, people tend to go there for lunch or just to have a cup of coffee and a dessert or light meal. There is also free wi-fi in all of their shops so you can even study or work with your laptop there.
In the evening, people tend to go to Pronto more to have some alcoholic drinks, pasta dishes and bar foods.
As part of its Caffe menu, Pronto serves a delicious Kyoto Uji Matcha Latte that you can have cold or hot (380 yen for regular size). It also has a nice cafe latte and, in the summer, it offers a selection of limited time cold drinks such as the ice earl grey tea or the cold brewed tropical mountain blend coffee.
Tomato Spaghetti with Eggplant and Bacon
Pronto is known for its tasty pasta dishes. The tomato Spaghetti with Eggplant and Bacon (690 yen) is a popular item on the regular menu. They have 12 pasta choices to choose from and prices range from 590 to 790 yen.
Pronto also has a good selection of desserts. Their Mont Blanc is worth the try.
Gin Tonics and Moscow Mule
And when you feel like drinking, Pronto has a good selection of drinks. You can order for instance a Tropical Malibu and Pineapple cocktail (690 yen, summer limited edition). They serve premium malt beer for 490 yen and gin tonics and Moscow mule for 590 yen among many other options.

For a coffee break, for an Italian-style lunch or for having a drink after work, Pronto is the place to go. You'll get reliably good foods and drinks at very reasonable prices!
