Is everybody turning Japanese?
ELV really thinks so….based upon the recent, well-attended Aki Matsuri Japanese festival, and the surfeit of Rising Sun sustenance that’s surfaced on Spring Mountain — including the aforementioned Anime Ramen, and now Cafe de Japon.
Right about now, ELV imagines you’re thinking to yourself: “No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women, no fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it’s dark…”
…but the food and drink, including huge jars of fresh, house-made yuzu soda — not to mention the mellow and rich filter coffee and insanely light cheese soufflé dessert (what we would call cheesecake, although it really is a soufflé) — is damn tasty.
And the design will put you in mind of a cozy, Kyoto cafe.
And it just opened a month ago.
And you should go.
I really think so.

I’m just amazed ELV has heard of the vapors (the 80s band, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to hear him use that term to refer to personal maladies.)
This place is wonderful. If they have the Marron Chantilly dessert, do not miss it — too wonderful for words. Great spot, very soothing, comforting old-fashioned atmosphere, even fabulous iced coffee. Can’t wait to try those sodas.
great little spot.
good look JC
Kiichi the owner, used to be the sushi master at Sushi Roku in the Forum Shops. I hope he turns up the creative juice, as this spot with him at the helm, has a great deal of potential.
