cafe marble

cafe marble opened in Summer 2007. It started when the design team of set up a cafe space in their then new office space. We are proud of the uniquely calm atmosphere found only in traditional Kyoto town houses and our menu which we take the time to prepare with great care.
When we set up the cafe, we took care to preserve the beauty of the 120 year old building, the high ceiling knowns as a "hibukuro" as well as the support beams were left as they were where possible. The garden we landscaped ourselves. On the "shikkui" plastered walls we painted Marble's mascot bear.
