The Tsurajima area of Kurashiki is famous for renkon and huge factories. Pain Cafe Atelier is a small bakery just off the Mizutama Bridge Line. It’s also the only restaurant within a walking distance from my house.
Kurashiki is seeing some sort of rejuvenation with a lot of building restoring their storefront, Scarecrow Coffee & More is giving new life to an old liquor store.
Hocus Pocus / Little Nap Coffee Stand is a minimalist Donuts & Coffee shop that was conveniently located in front of the conference I attended in Tokyo. It’s the first time I visited this area of Tokyo which is a short distance from National Diet and the Imperial Palace.
Exploring Tokyo on a bicycle proved to be a great way to discover places I would probably never get to see otherwise. After grabbing lunch in from of the main gate of Yasakuni shrine, I headed back toward my hotel in Akasaka and stopped at Jupiters Coffee Roasters ジュピターズ コーヒー ロースターズ.
On a recent trip to Shimane Prefecture, we made a very brief stop at Kuri Kuri coffee 栗栗珈琲 in Masuda.
When I visited Melaka two years ago, I tried to visit Mods Cafe but got turned down by the staff because I walked in 5 min before they close down. This time, I got a slightly warmer reception.
While I am perfectly happy with drinking the traditional Malaysian white coffee, I wanted to try The Coffee Jar as soon as I arrived in Melaka.

Yamau coffee stand is located right the heart of the Bikan historical area of Kurashiki a short distance from Ivy Square and the Ohara Museum.
I stumbled on Cafe St-Henri when I visited the Jean-Talon market. This is a satellite of the original cafe St-Henri located on rue Notre-Dame.
I read about Dispatch Coffee in the coffee press . I knew I had to visit Dispatch coffee as soon as I arrived in Montreal. I visited the main coffee shop and roastery located on St-Zotique West street. The area is mostly commercial and feels a bit like it’s the middle of nowhere, but it’s worth the visit.
Caffe San Simeon was my surprise coffee discovery. I have walked in front of it for many years and never noticed it. I guess that Caffe Italia was my unique destination in Little Italy and never gave two shits about other places.
