Hello, everyone. Today I am here at Ogaki Bookstore’s Book Café, located on the 4th floor of the Aeon Mall Kitaoji Store. Please listen, everyone. This is exactly the right place to spend time after buying a book, at lunchtime, and at 3 o’clock snack time.

Ogaki Bookstore & café AEON MALL Kitaoji Store's stylish interior

Hey, look at the interior of the store.

You can spend your own book café time in this kind of store. Well, as to what kind of food is available at the book café…

The menu is like this.

In addition to coffee, juices, and smoothies, their main products are hot sandwiches, but they also have curry and pasta. The price range is from 580 yen to 800 yen. I think they are so-so affordable.

Well, what I ate this time among them is this product.


Hot Sandwich Cream with An Butter

Hot sandwich cream with red bean butter (1000 yen)

mango juice

By set with Mango juice.

Yeah, it has been very hot recently, I was thirsty and sugar was in short supply, so I ordered this product. And this product is…

This was really delicious!

The sweet bean paste stuffed into the freshly made hot sandwich is also exquisite. I can’t get enough of this moment when the heavy sweetness lands heavily in the mouth and the bean paste spreads over the entire tongue ~~! And if you add cream to it, it tastes even better.

The harmony of the sweet and creamy bean pastes and sandwich is wonderful!

Yeah, this is a truly delicious dish. No exaggeration or anything. Actually, I ordered it with no intention, but it was delicious. I would order one again.

Yes, that’s right. By the way, when I bought more than 1,000-yen worth of books at Ogaki Bookstore, I could get a 50-yen discount coupon for the café. So, I feel like I’m saving 50 yen♪

Recently renewed Ogaki Bookstore and book café attached to it. I think this is a good place to spend half time at an affordable price.
