Seasonal chestnut parfait with a view of the murmuring Kamo River at Cafe [float] in Kiyamachi.

April 07, 2023 open

A little south of Shijo Kiyamachi. A little south of Shijo Kiyamachi, the cafe "float" is located in a rented machiya house called "Kamogawa Creative Base," or "Kamo Base," which stands quietly at the end of an alleyway. You can enjoy seasonal parfait, cheesecakes, and baked sweets in a relaxing space with a beautiful view of the Kamo River.

The store is run by food creator and photographer Konatsu Marumoto. She ran Blister Coffee from the time she was a university student until the fall of 2022, when it was closed for various reasons and reopened as Float in April 2023. Cheesecakes, raisin butter sandwiches, and other baked goods, as well as the monthly parfait that started in August, have become so popular that reservations are already difficult.

Chestnut parfait with float

Chestnut parfait for October only: 1,800 yen. Parfait will be discontinued in October, and the menu will be changed to a plate of baked sweets and other sweets from November.

Marumoto's goal is to create a parfait that you will never get tired of and will enjoy every bite. The adult, rich marron cream with a hint of rum, chai-flavored granola, vanilla ice cream, and pear compote lurking at the bottom refresh you. The bittersweet caramel mousse is also an accent. There are 5 servings available, but reservations are recommended.
