Located close to Umekoji Park, but tucked away from the street, it is a hideaway that makes you forget the hustle and bustle of the city. The former fruit and vegetable store [Maeda Shoten] on Shichijo-dori has relocated and undergone a major renovation to create this new store. The previous store also served fruit drinks and other items, but I wanted to offer customers the chance to sit back and enjoy drinks and food as well," says the owner, Maeda Kisa, with a smile.

The concept of the restaurant is to incorporate fruits into the menu, and the menu features dishes such as shrimp and grapefruit cocktail salad and butternut and fig sautéed in butter, which are unique to this restaurant.

Today's snack Iroko plate for 1,620 yen. On this day, carrot rapé with nuts and handmade dried grapes, sauteed chicken wings with fig sauce, etc.

In fact, Ms. Maeda is a mother of four children. With the motto of "food I want my children to eat," she pays careful attention to pesticide-free vegetables and additive-free seasonings. She also offers a wide selection of alcoholic beverages, mainly bio wines, as well as sake and other drinks selected from a woman's point of view. I would be happy if even a single woman could enjoy a casual lunchtime drink. It is also a great place to drink without feeling guilty because you can consume a lot of fresh nutrients.
