Enjoy unique sweets with a local love at Yoro., a night cafe in Nagahama.

December 09, 2020 open

A 150-year-old Japanese house with an old clock ticking away the time. Yoro., which hangs its curtain only on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights, is a hot spot among café lovers. The person welcoming guests with a bright smile is Rinako Tsuji, who was born and raised here. After three years at a Japanese restaurant in Gion, where she worked after graduating from a culinary school, the situation in the restaurant industry changed drastically due to the Corona disaster. She returned to Nagahama and "wanted to do something to bring back many people to this place I love, where I was born and raised," so she started supporting her parents and running a night cafe at the same time.


From left, iiDonut 180 yen. The dough kneaded with rice from funazushi, a fermented food of Shiga Prefecture, has a slight cheese-like aroma. Kinmokusai and passion fruit cream soda 650 yen. Daringly colorless soda is not too sweet and has a floral flavor. Jasmine and lychee cream soda is also available.

The menu, which shifts with the seasons, such as floral cream soda in summer and terrine with chestnuts stewed in astringent chestnut bark in autumn, draws on the experience of studying seasonal Japanese cuisine. Tradition and innovation also coexist in the classic sweets that showcase local love, such as iced cheesecake made with local sake and sake lees, and donuts kneaded with funa-zushi rice. The qualities of such specialties, which are always properly tasty and comforting, can be felt.
