Hotel Monterey Kyoto The Library

The Library cafe and bar is located in the Hotel Monterey Kyoto, just one block from Karasuma-Oike Station on Karasuma Dori between Sanjo Dori and Rokkaku Dori.



The dark, rich wood interior of The Library reflects the feel of a British home library from the 1870s, including antique elements from the time.  



Tea sets include Japanese tea with wagashi, western tea with cake, and milk tea with cake.  

My selection for this visit was Earl Grey with a light and refreshing strawberry cake.



Service at The Library is excellent while being non-intrusive.  I had a delightful time catching up with friends I haven't seen in years in this setting and I look forward to many more visits.
