Best Cafe in Echoland. Great burgers, terrific muffins and cakes. Always popular so be prepared to wait to get a seat in rush hour.

Amazing breakfast!!! Lived in Japan for a few years and this is the best breakfast we’ve had. Moist, delicious muffins. Eggs and bacon on toast was delicious too!

An absolute DO NOT MISSS in Hakuba!! I have been here multiple times on my husband’s recommendation, with him. Never gets old! This time I had the spicy chicken burger, super succulent chicken with a creamy peanut sauce. Burgers are massive for the price you...pay, all come with sides of fries and quinoa salad and on in house baked buns. The bakery sweets are delicious and plated beautifully! Coffee is great, and vibe is relaxed service with a big smile. Will always come back 💖 Oh and they roast their own coffee ++More

The french toast is just delicious here at Sounds Like Cafe. It's got maple drizzled around whipped cream and some wonderful cream in the middle. Honestly, the best french toast I've had in awhile. The lady also ordered avocado toast that she loved as well!...Felt like the coffee was a bit expensive and the register guy could use some help, but this review is for the food and that's a 5/5More

Great breaky food such as bacon and eggs, eggs with avocado, pancakes, muffins etc... Have eaten breakfast here 3 mornings. Would be nice if there was some lighter options such as fruit, yogurt, granola. A good lunch menu, but haven’t tried those yet. Good coffee.

This busy and popular cafe serves amazing coffee and breakfast. Better Eggs Benedict than I can get back in Perth with perfectly poached eggs. Highly recommend - get there before 11 if you’d like the breakfast menu.

Great cafe. It’s one of those places when you know you are going to holiday you start to salivate at the thought of eating their tasty food. We come and visit frequently every year. One of our favorites is the Chicken Karage burger. But everything...on the menu is delicious. They make an awesome coffee, and both soy and almond milk are available. We have only been in town a week and have dined here twice already. The setting is cosy and if they are busy, which they usually are, they kindly place you on a wait list for a table. Great place. Well run. Awesome food.More

Lovely intimate cafe with great service, good menu options and decent coffee. Family friendly and the child curry made us envious.

Great burgers, both the kid's and adult's versions were large sizes and hit the spot. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Liked it so much we went back for more a few more times during out stay.

A great place to grab a coffee and lunch (their kitchen is closed in late afternoon/evening). Lots of seating and tasty menu options. You get to select your coffee beans upon ordering. Best coffee we've had in Japan!

Always busy and difficult to get a table but great coffee, yummy burgers, and muffins to die for! Breakfast menu is also delish but ends at around 11am.

Went here for breakfast on New Years Day. I was a bit worried when the waitress advised it would be a 40 minute wait for coffee but we decided to go ahead anyway! She must like to underpromise and over deliver because the wait for...food and coffee was not too long. My son ordered bacon and eggs on toast and my daughter had the banana and chocolate muffin, I had the avo and eggs on toast. Meals were huge, none of us could finish!! All was delicious and well presented. The coffee was pretty good too! Nice atmosphere and can cater to larger groups.More

Great coffee and burgers One of the few cafes which were open on the day we arrived. Service is great and the burgers were delicious. The coffee is excellent and they have a roastery on the site. Visited the next day for muffins and coffee...which was delicious as well.More
