E-fish is a modern cafe space-slash design store on the western edge of the Kamogawa (Kamo River) just under Gojo street. (Handy if you are in the Kiyomizu area and walking towards Kyoto station along Gojo)
The food is mainly western style, or a fusion of Japanese and western cuisines with a predominantly fresh, nutritious slant. It is indeed a lovely spot to while away the afternoon, particularly when the glass doors are opened up to allow in the breeze.
Fresh berries crushed with soda
Corn chips with guacamole
Vegetarian Taco salad
Broccoli and ricotta salad
I've been here on a several occasions and have found the service to be a little bit inconsistent - at its worst - well... arrogant. And there tends to be a bit of a "scene" from time to time ie a "cool" crowd of designer types (don't get me wrong - I love me some designer types but this particular crowd just seems to have a certain air about them...) - but the food, drinks and view plus the fact you can linger with a book for as long as you like make up a tight little package capable of diffusing any misgivings.
