Book café [EL SUR] opened in front of JR Yasu Station in Shiga.
In October 2023, a coffee shop that has been a favorite of locals for 40 years in front of Yasu Station will be reborn as a book café where customers can enjoy coffee, light meals, and reading books while retaining the classic Showa period atmosphere. The new owner, who enjoys collecting antiquarian books, has been collecting them for 25 years, and has selected a variety of genres to enjoy with coffee.
The owner says he still has enough books at home that the floor is about to fall out. He welcomes requests such as, "I want to read this book! She will introduce you to a book you didn't know you wanted to read. Although it is a café, it is also an antiquarian bookstore, so you can use it just for books.
During lunch hours from 11:30 to 14:00, you can enjoy a nostalgic dish of curry rice with beef tendon for 800 yen. Order a set with your favorite drink and receive a 100 yen discount on the drink.
We hope that book lovers as well as those who enjoy retro coffee shops will visit and enjoy this relaxing moment.
