New cafe is opened near Cape Maeda. Nice Open space and nice music. Dog friendly as well.

The pasta lunch is around 1000 JPN Yen, you can choose the pasta from 3 kinds. Including soup, salad, bread and coffee.

We ordered the tomato based pasta. Taste nice, but we need a bit volume. We'll order the large portion next time.

We love the space and music, you can see the small mangroves in front of the cafe. I didn't check WiFi availability but if available, we will stop by for cafe time as well next time.

A bit luxury supermarket 'My kitchen'

If you get bored to go to the typical supermarket, like 3A or Max Value, in Okinawa, You should try 'My kithcen' near Outlet mall in Naha. 'My kitchen' seems to be organized by the department store, Okinawa Mitsukoshi. You can find a bit different and luxury food grocery there. We stop by this supermarket after shopping the outlet mall. We are always exited and enjoy there.

Smoothies and Scone at Nishihara

One weekend we enjoyed driving near Ryukyu University at Nishihara. We tried to find nice cafe for lunch without any information. Finally, we found the sign of 'Cafe' and decided to stop by.

After we entered this cafe, we realized this cafe is scone shop, not for lunch. Well, we ate sweets and smoothies before lunch. Sometimes opposite order might be fine. Customers continuously come in the shop and ordered scones. Very famous scone shop in Nishihara local. And I totally understood cheap and tasty scones in this shop. and we loved smoothies as well.

After this sweets, we went to Italian restaurant sola, pretty closed from this cafe.
