さんさかSansaka

On Ainomachi Street north of Oike Street is a little café in a building called ポポラーレ御池POPOLARE Oike. I read about it in a book café book at another café and liked the sound of it, so I decided to check it out one day after work in October.

I found it pretty easily (a surprise, because I’m such a houkou-onchi).

I wanted to sit at the counter seating in front of the window facing the street…next time…

books in front of the kitchen counter

the left side of my counter seat table: the cups and saucers are the café’s original.

After looking through the menu and asking for suggestions from the staff, I decided on アイスコーヒーaisu koohii (iced coffee), ¥450 (¥100 off), because I was pretty hot from my walk there from work; for my food order, I got フレンチトーストFurenchi toosuto (French toast), ¥600.

FAVORITES

The coffee was stronger than what I usually order but refreshing and good nonetheless. The French toast was delicious; next time, I’ll make it a point to order it without ice cream with which I failed to notice that it came.

The smell of their famous stewing curry pervaded every corner of that little room; I smelled strongly of the onions used in the curry for a long time after I left the place.

Besides smelling like onions when I left, I really liked Sansaka which was quite cozy and quiet; I hope to go back again sometime, maybe I’ll try the curry then.
