Since this coffee shop is located close to Kitara, many people stop by to enjoy a cup of coffee with a sandwich or other food they bring themselves (food can be brought in if it does not disturb other customers) before a concert. Café latte, with a choice of two espresso varieties of coffee beans, is popular. Waffles (waffles with ice cream, pizza waffles, etc.) and baked confectionery from Pâtisserie Anne Charlotte are also served. Some dishes are only available during certain seasons. Please check the information on the shop's Facebook site, etc.

Attractive features

Like last year, the shop offers PMF Blend - a rich, flavorful, perfectly balanced original coffee (limited offer until August 10, 2015). The shop carries a wide variety of coffee beans (usually around 20 varieties). Although the clientele mostly consist of self-composed adults, young people are always welcome (PMF academy members often drop by found during the PMF season).

The Cezanne Set is popular among this shop's original dishes. The name originates from the serving style of apple pie topped with ice cream, because it looks like Mount Sainte-Victoire, which Cezanne used to love. Try it to see for yourself if it really looks like the mountain. Recommended dishes are hot sandwiches and coffee as a light meal before a concert, and coconut curry, hashed beef or pasta to fill the stomach after a concert.

Attractive features

As the base of Sapporo Art Labo - a cultural school of art and academics taught by various lecturers across various genres, 10 art lectures are organized annually. The shop also doubles as an art gallery. People enjoy a quiet time of their own: appreciating art works, or reading books over a cup of coffee. Some people are even composing music there.

Crepes and pies using Yoichi-produced apples that have been simmered in the shop are highly recommended (PMF staff members tried them and found the apple fillings extremely exquisite, highlighting the crunchy texture of the apples). If you cannot decide whether to order the sweet potato pie abundantly using the Beniazuma variety or the apple pie, you can even have a mixed sweet potato & apple pie to enjoy both. Soft-serve ice cream is also offered in summer.

Attractive features

Although the main customers at this shop are students from nearby high schools, the shop's clientele also include male customers and repeaters who come from a long distance away. Not only the excellent crepes and pies, but also the friendly shop staff, who always create a cheerful atmosphere, are reasons for this shop's popularity, which has spread by word of mouth. The shop is located a little distance from Kitara, but you may reach the concert hall without realizing the distance if you are walking with friends and chat over a crepe.

For those who want to have a quick meal before a concert, the pasta set (a pasta dish, soup, dessert and coffee/tea) is recommended. Although the restaurant offers various courses and a la carte dishes, customers are particularly impressed with the desserts. Cakes, ice cream and the special Kitara zenzai (sweet adzuki bean soup) are perfect for the PMF season.

Attractive features

Located inside Kitara, many people visit this restaurant before or after a concert because it is so very close to the concert hall. It is recommended to make a reservation to secure a table, because it gets very crowded, especially after a concert in the main hall.

Some people enjoy a quick meal such as a fried rice dish before a concert at Kitara, others take time to enjoy dinner over drinks after a concert. Recommended dishes are....all of them! Really, all dishes on the menu are popular among customers. At lunch time, set menus including rice, salad, soup and more (prices range from 630 - 1,260 yen) are good to fill the stomach. A la carte dishes can also be prepared for take-out.

Attractive features

When the restaurant opened at its current location in 1989, it used to be filled with families over weekends, because the site of the present Kitara was an amusement park called Kodomo no Kuni (Children's Kingdom). Now the restaurant is visited by even more varied people: familial local residents, people who enjoying walking in Nakajima Park and people coming to Kitara. It is not the usual Chinese restaurant. It takes pride in serving a very wide variety of home-style dishes from across China to meet everyone's taste.

The popular lunch-time menu includes Tanmen noodles and fried rice. The Tanmen noodles with pork and zha cai (pickled Sichuan vegetables) used to be served to members of the imperial family. Fried rice with herring roe is a popular dish among PMF staff members. If you have a large appetite, a voluminous lunch called Tappuri Tabetaiha Lunch (lunch for a huge appetite) is recommended. The monthly Togen Sansai lunch for people aged 65 years and over and dim sum dishes are also popular. For dessert, why don't you try Seiso Annin, a rare traditional kind of annin tofu?

Attractive features

You may imagine hot dishes when you hear Sichuan cuisine; however, the unique spiciness and tasty flavor have a good reputation among people who are not so keen on hot dishes. The levels of spiciness can be adjusted. Try the real world of Sichuan cuisine, which is deep and matches the taste of Japanese.

If you stop by at this coffee shop before a concert, the best choice is a light meal such as Kurashiki's croquet-monsieur-style sandwich or a hot burdock root sandwich with a cup of Kurashiki blend or today's straight coffee. Popular original dishes such as Kanazawa-style curry and Toast Fuji, which was created based on the image of Mt. Fuji, are also recommended. For desserts, you can choose from a wide selection of sweets such as handmade daifuku sweets and shaved ice, which is only available in summer.

Attractive features

The shop's name, Kurashiki, originates from a unique method of letting coffee beans sit in a storehouse (kura in Japanese) to increase their rich flavor. Coffee beans carefully selected from around the world are dripped using a siphon after an order is placed. The price is reasonable because the amount of one serving is about 1.5 cups. People stay for a relatively long time and to enjoy a relaxing time. This may be encouraged by the calm atmosphere. The shop is open late at night. It would be nice to feel the excitement after a concert while looking at the lit up garden.
