A fresh and smart cafe quite in contrast to the rest of this traditional town, Cafe Lente is a a beautiful coffee stop.
With huge windows facing the trees, it has a cabin-in-the-woods feel, but in a really good, tree-house kind of way. The menu is pretty simple, with a couple of cake options, an unusual rare-yoghurt-cake (a bit like a cheesecake) fruit sandwiches and a couple of savoury options (both containing meat, unfortunately). Be sure to try the local yuzu cider (more like a lemon soda, there’s no alcohol in a Japanese cider) and enjoy the view!
The very nice owner spent a few months living in the UK and speaks English plus there’s an English menu available, so you’ll have no problems ordering if you don’t speak any Japanese.
