Saraca Nishijin information
This is one of Kyoto’s most interesting cafes – it’s built inside an old sentō (public bathhouse) and the original tiles have been preserved. Light meals and coffee (¥480) are the staples here. The lunch plate (¥940) is decent value. Service can be slow and scattered but the interesting ambience makes it worth a look. It’s near Funaoka Onsen.
