Walking to my Air BnB, Efish caught my eye several times before I committed to walking in, and when I did I loved it so much I went again the next day. Efish is located on a charming little street with a river running through it, and many different kinds of colourful springtime flowers. On the other side of it is the Kamo River, which makes a very pretty view when seen from the second storey.
Over the two times we were there, my little family and I tried the coffee, hot cocoa, a curry, BLTs, a tuna and cottage cheese sandwich, smoothies, and the green tea flavoured scones. Everything was well priced and very fresh. A highlight for me was the hot cocoa (made quite differently both times, but each was huge and rich) and the green tea scones.
The staff were incredibly lovely as well, and very attentive and helpful. At least a few of them spoke English and I noticed a sign in the cafe advertising English lessons. Efish is a store and a gallery as well as a cafe, and the cards and artwork they have for sale are very beautiful. If I end up in Kyoto again I will definitely pay them another visit!
