Basara House

Cafe in Beppu

There's a handmade, arty feel to this renovated 1940s house, filled with exposed beams, period tile work and eclectic ephemera. All the better to sip coffee, chai or ume (Japanese plum) soda and appreciate occasional art exhibits or musical happenings. Round things out with curries or fried rice for lunch (¥800), including some veggie options.
