Profile of Ace cafe
When you enter the café, you’ll see a beautiful night view of the Higashiyama area of Kyoto. It is one of the Ace cafe’s prides, adding to the fact that you rarely have a panorama from high positions in Kyoto because of local ordinance.
The café’s owner, Isao Fujii talks more about its attractions.
What do you have other than a breathtaking panorama view?
We offer professional level cocktails, Italian dishes, and café menu items like cake. I believe there is something for everyone to enjoy about this space.
Do you have any specific concepts or something for this café?
Not especially. Just that I’d like to create a space where people expect “something fun to happen.” Couples, friends, families, seniors, everyone is very much welcomed.
I hear the music is cool here.
Thanks. When I was young, I dreamed of having a café where I could offer a good meal while playing cool music. During that time I worked as a cook in Hiroshima, my hometown. I couldn’t realize it at that time because of my boss, but now that I’m the boss!
I’m really passionate about creating a good playlist since I believe it makes the food even better.
Oh, you create the playlist by yourself?
Yes. Sometimes foreign guests pay attention to the music and talk to me about it. I’m really really happy to get that kind of positive feedback. Japanese people don’t care for Background Music very much. I can say I create the playlist so that the next foreign visitors like it.
Do you have any favorite artists?
