Tsukushi, a nearly 50-year old café, is a hidden gem among locals and a staple in the Hida Furukawa area. The brick exterior painted muted brown creates a cozy entrance, and the large black and white coffee sign out front speaks to the restaurant’s theme. The nostalgic interior is equally as relaxing, where you can meet the charming elderly couple who run the shop. Close to the station, Tsukushi is a great place to grab a bite to eat while waiting for your train.
Tsukushi serves a host of delicious breakfast items with its morning set of thickly sliced toast with jam or butter, a hard-boiled egg, vegetable salad, and cup of coffee providing a great energy boost at the start of the day. Other notable dishes include savory omelettes and sweet fruit sandwiches and ice cream!
The shop’s most popular dish is its meat spaghetti. The rich taste of the pasta, meat, and vegetables is paired with the mellow flavors of soft-boiled egg, creating a wonderfully balanced dish that is served on an iron plate.
For a relaxing meal time spot with cute café vibes, Tsukushi is worth stopping by.
