Cold-brewed coffee is known for its smooth feeling and suppressed bitterness due to the steeping process not requiring heat. This unique process also brings out a deep rich aroma from the coffee bean.

We serve our cold brew coffee served in a specially ordered ice bowl. In order for you to enjoy your coffee at an ideal temperature.

When it is served you can appreciate the original aroma and flavor of the coffee, afterwards sweeten your drink with the ice cream provided to make a coffee float. Cool down this summer with a cold brew from cafe 33.

cafe33 Now Offers Take-out

33 cheeseburger JPY 2,200 

(Take-out and tax charges included) 

cafe 33's popular "33 cheeseburger" has a reputation for being an authentic gourmet burger. The secret to the deliciousness of our “33 cheeseburger” is our original sprinkle of BBQ spices on fresh 100% beef patties from Australia (170g). We are particular about our beef using a ratio of 85% lean meat to 15% fat to ensure a juicy and tasty burger. We grill our patties in a high-temperature wood oven so you can enjoy the smoky aroma and flavor that tightly wraps around the umami of the meat.

Enjoy the “33 cheeseburger” made with quality ingredients from our brioche buns that are baked fresh inside the hotel, to our carefully selected Australian cheddar. That has an emphasis on aroma and richness that matches well with our beef patties. Our burgers are also composed of fresh tomatoes, lettuce, and onions that offer a refreshing flavor to our meal. Taste a classic cheeseburger made for all ages.

On the side, we serve tomato chutney (a rich vegetable jam made by boiling fruits and vegetables with spices) to accompany the burger. It pairs great with the savory flavors of our burgers and potatoes.

Enjoy the authentic hamburger experience anywhere, with our new takeout menu.

Tamba Wine is the first winery in Kyoto Prefecture. They grow over 40 varieties and search for the best suited to the Kyoto terroir. 


Kyoto’s Blend Farm is a young company that brings together a variety of small independent farmers and vegetable growers across the prefecture giving them a better sense of community as well as better access to market the produce they grow. Kyoto has a long and illustrious history of growing vegetables that has been for some time and for many reasons somewhat in decline so It's great to see a passionate young company working hard to once again put agriculture and small farming firmly back on the map and do its part to help reverse the depopulation of Japan's countryside.
