2.Retro Café “Ijinkan”

The green curtain is attractive☆

Ijinkan has been renovated in 2019. Although there are small changes compared to before, the cozy atmosphere inside the café remains the same! The green curtain outside is beautiful, too! I could enjoy the relaxing tea time there.

Ijinkan also serves breakfast food and lunch.

Today, I ordered a combo of unbaked cheesecake and blended coffee (880 yen, as of August 2020). Tasty!

The menu includes Ijinkan curry, Tarako (cod roe) spaghetti, butter toast, French toast, etc. The drink menu includes blended coffee, American coffee, Café au lait, coffee float, Lemon Tea, Milk Tea, and so on.

Although this is not exactly international café but Ijinkan will give you nostalgic atmosphere to relax!
