Cute cups of cappuccino at cafe near Iwakuni
I was watching a local Japanese show with my parents one evening when I saw a piece on this cute place called Yucafe in Waki Town that made the most adorable cappuccinos. I wrote down the name and added it to my list of places to check out.
Yucafe popped up on Google Maps right away, which made me super happy. I go to Waki every now and then, but I’m not familiar with the whole area. I saved the pin and tried to figure out when I would be able to go.
I finally found the time, and after an issue finding the place with Google Maps, I finally arrived with my friend Tani. I was definitely ready for a kawaii cappuccino!
It is a really cute cafe!
There’s not a whole lot of parking in front. Maybe just enough room for two or three cars.
I knew I was getting a design cappuccino before I even walked in. What I didn’t know however, was that there is French toast on the menu here! Chocolate banana French toast?? Um. Yes, please! I had already eaten lunch so this was going to be my afternoon “snack.” Tani had not had lunch yet though so she ordered the Baked Curry Doria lunch and a design cappuccino.
After we placed our orders, we looked around the inside of the cafe. It is just as cute as the outside!
After a short wait, she brought out Tani’s curry doria. It smelled amazing!
This has rice on the bottom with curry and cheese on top. I tried some and it was very good! If curry is not your thing, there is also a daily lunch special on the menu. Or…you can order French toast for lunch. I see nothing wrong with that at all.
My chocolate banana French toast came in a cute little castiron skillet. I really like the way she does her French toast! It wasn’t super mushy in the center and the bread is nice and thick. She also offers plain French toast and a berry French toast. Then she brought out our cappuccinos. Oh. My. Gosh. They were so cute!
I haven’t had a cute cappuccino in a while and I am so happy I can get my fix whenever I want again.
The prices were also very reasonable. For the two of us, our total was less than ¥2,000 (less than $20 at the current exchange rate).
Yucafe is open from 0900-1700 every day, except for Tuesdays.
P.S. Most of the drinks can be ordered for take-out also.
