We dropped in for a Tuesday afternoon snack (around 3:45pm) and it was packed. The line wasn’t as long as I’d seen the day before walking around downtown but it went back to the entrance. Crazy.
Service is friendly but a tad slow. I’m sure they’ll work out the kinks with time. There’s room to sit when you walk further inside (with about 16 seats). There’s also a washitsu room, which was hidden but cool to find.
The menu is up front; o-matcha, sencha, other Japanese tea, latte; ice blended, float, parfait, soft cream and shaved ice. Hilarious that they call the vanilla mix soft cream “good for matcha beginners”.
They also had a few Japanese desserts (kinako daifuku, match daifuku and yuzu tarts) available at the counter.

About time we got quality soft serve in the city. Pretty close to the quality I had in Japan.
