Inside the ACTUAL store

Shijo Omiya's [ACTUAL] is a good balance of hospitality and attention to detail

April 14, 2023 open

Concrete is poured, hardened, and poured again...the countertop, the result of painstaking labor, is like a work of art.

Mr. Kitaura, owner of ACTUAL

Kohei and Mayumi Kitaura opened a café in an old private house with materials and space that are particular about their space, utilizing the old house with the Randen train passing in front of it. The missing parts of the mud walls are covered with rock paints, and carved wooden roses fill in the frames of the pillars.

Inside the ACTUAL store

The sense of space is enchanting, taking advantage of the natural materials of the old private house.
The couple's gentle customer service is also comforting, as they emphasize the importance of "hands-on experience," saying, "In an increasingly digitalized world, we want people to feel the charm of a restaurant in a real store.

ACTUAL iced coffee

Iced coffee with your choice of beans, this time drip coffee (quenching iced coffee) from 750 yen. On this day, El Salvadoran beans with a lemonade-like fruitiness will be used

During weekend night hours, a special nighttime cheesecake that goes well with drinks will also be available. For more information about the nighttime business, check out their Instagram.
