Café MALDA, located on a quiet street nestled in central Kyoto is furnished with iconic Jurgen Lehl designed, artisan-crafted wooden stools. With open windows facing Aneyakoji Street, we invite guests to take time out of a busy day to take a break and enjoy their time.
The café takes inspiration from the food philosophy Jurgen Lehl shared and Babaghuri celebrated through their two recipe book publications: featuring a no-sugar sweets menu and a vegetarian lunch menu served at the company cafeteria located in East Tokyo, Kiyosumi Shirakawa.
The ingredients used have been sourced from natural farms and we choose to select organic (pesticide-free), as much as we can. With this principle in mind, we bake fresh muffins daily and have cookies available as a perfect gift item to take home or enjoy in the cafe. Both have been celebrated sweets from Babaghuri's publication and events.
In addition to the muffins we offer a eat-in menu, such as a coconut cardamon flan, homemade gelato, and a seasonal fruit galette. All of our desserts have a natural tasting sweetness to them; in most cases from the natural taste of the fruits themselves or maple syrup or honey.
Our drink menu features Babaghuri's original blend bean tea, organic coffee, as well as a natural wine list. When in season, fruits, herbs and citrus from Jurgen Lehl's farm in Ishigaki, Okinawa inspires our cafe to create a seasonal soda.
During the lunch hours of 11:30 to 2pm, we serve a vegetarian curry, a favorite menu at Jurgen Lehl's company cafeteria.
Feel free to visit us on your way out and about in Kyoto.
We look forward to having you at our cafe.
