Kannon Coffee Kamakura
Kannon Coffee opened in 2017, as the second branch of this chain originally from Nagoya. This small cozy cafe, inside a renovated former kimono shop, offers great hand drip coffee alongside a delectable sweets selection. They’re known for their miniature Big Buddha biscuits, which top the menu’s crepes and parfaits which come in seasonal varieties too.
There are always at least 5 types of coffee prepared, including a seasonal blend and monthly single origin speciality coffee. For teas, they use leaves direct from Shizuoka’s Sasama region for their Hojicha Latte, Matcha Latte, and Japanese Black Tea.
Its proximity to Hase-dera Temple and Kotoku-in (home to Kamakura’s Great Buddha) make it an excellent refueling point after any visit to one of these nearby attractions. The affiliated Ekiyoko Bake is also just minutes away in the direction of Hase Station.
