Vegetarian and kids’ heaven in town!

Mumokuteki cafe is divided into three sections: The first one feels like home with casual couches and arm chairs, perfect for casual tea time, while the middle room is furnished with country-style tables and chairs. The “Family room” third section accommodates adults with children. The middle one is perhaps best for dining, the first room is best if you come simply for coffee, tea, and dessert.
For lunch and dinner, you'll find both set-menus and dishes a la carte.
During the lunch hours, an additional 200 yen allows you access to a vegetarian salad bar where you may eat all you like, and if you add 300yen, you will have both salad bar access and drink.

For dinner, I recommend one of the "ban-gohan setto”, or, “set-menu (prix fixe dish)”. Priced at 1,620 yen during a weekday, and 1,800 yen for a weekend, tax will be additional. To accompany the main dishes, the set comes with seven small side dishes of rice, miso soup, dessert, and one drink. The portions are generous and satisfying.

Mumokuteki café is a "vegetarian friendly" and ”Kids friendly” establishment since they provide a variety of a la carte meals (580yen to 1200yen, before tax); you'll find pastas, gluten free vegetarian ramen, curry, veggie burger, smoothie, and even "vegan" sweets.
There are four kinds of small sized children’s meals (520yen to 670yen; before tax).

The cuisine is free of white sugar, dairy products, and meat, but a few dishes may have fish broth in them, noted on the menu with a fish logo.
The vegetables served here are sourced mainly from a colleague’s organic farm, and the rice is grown at their own farm, and all are quite delicious.
At this cafe, you can have a casual meal all day long until 9pm.

Located in Kyoto city center, Mumokuteki stands in between Teramachi St. and Gokomatchi St., one block South of Sanjo St.
It’s about seven minutes’ walk form Hankyu Kawaramachi Station.

Though there are two entrances both from Gokomachi St., and Teramachi St. Gokomachi St. side is the main entrance, and may easier to find.

The cafe is part of a complex of Mumokuteki shops on Gokomachi side, and Spins second hand clothes shop on Teramachi side. On the first floor of Gokomachi side, you'll find a store that sells household goods, so make sure you ascend the steps to the second floor where you'll find Mumokuteki cafe.

Bilingual menu available (Japanese and English).
Cash only. Inexpensive.
