hibiki coffee

Saturday, while I waited for Satoshi to finish his German class, I walked to Tenshinbashisuji and had my second breakfast at Hibiki Coffee.

A tiny shop with seats mainly at the counter (they also have a few tables) the owner brews everything after you order.

I ordered the "just brewed" iced coffee since he had noted on his menu that it was a stronger brew...550 yen.

Instead of adding ice to the coffee, he "chilled" it in a bowl over ice.

It was a good cup but I think it could've been a stronger brew.

I had also ordered toast...250 yen (since he didn't have salad that day, he minused 100 yen off...whoo!) I was surprised because it still came with some scrambled egg.

Next time, I'm trying the other iced coffee he has on his menu...500 yen, for comparison.

I'll be back.

I wonder if the owner knows my former student! (She a professional cyclist--she was national champion a couple of years ago, and placed second or third last year). Incidentally, she mentioned a coffee shop called Emma Coffee which looks like the kind of coffee shop you would like! It's north of Ikeda (north of Minoo Falls, actually) and is likely not convenient unless you have a car, but if you happen to be in the 'hood...

Thanks for the tip, Rona :) dunno that I'll have a chance to check it out, but if I'm ever around there, will definitely try them out!

It really was Kirk :)

It really was Jalna & K :)

Take care everyone!
