Hoshino Coffee - Ageo - Saitama Cafe Guide

We tried out Hoshino cafe for the first time today. For the coffee lovers they have hand drip coffee and the smell of freshly brewed coffee does hit you as you walk in.

The place is much bigger than it looks from the outside, there is the kura* room, the main room which is separated into small diner type areas, a couple of private rooms and a back room.

*kura is a traditionally built store house, lovely and cool in the summer due to its thick walls, small windows and high ceilings.

The menu choice wasn’t huge, I have to admit it was the soufflé that had caught my eye but I opted for lasagna and Ebi-kun had the soufflé instead. 

Yasutoki went for the ginger pork plate and the signature hand drip coffee.

What I didn’t realize until we were there was that it’s a chain restaurant, and although the food was OK, it did taste like chain restaurant food. I don’t know if it is so, but it tasted like frozen lasagna and not 
something made on site.

The serving sizes are quite small, suited me but the teen came home and made a toastie and then had ice-cream because he was still hungry! I also noticed that another family ordered a main meal and set of sandwiches for the dad, he must have been in the know on the portion size!

All in all, it was a pleasant enough place, it wasn’t busy even though it was lunch time. Clean and good service.

One of my favourite things to do is visit local cafes, enjoy great food and not have to do the washing up!
Plus we get to support the locals, win-win! 

As I write this we are currently in a state of emergency again, it’s all a bit wishy-washy, cafes are allowed to stay open but are not supposed to serve alcohol and should have safety precautions in place. So I’ll include a COVID safety with out reviews.

Quick note, keep in mind that menus change, prices change and so do opening times. I’ll provide a link to the cafes website, I recommend checking there or giving them a call for current times and opening restrictions etc.

And if you visit, let me know what you think!
