晴れている穏やかな日には、オープンテラス席でひと時を過ごしたくなるスターバックスです(但しオープンテラス席は夏季限定)。鴨川を臨むため景色は素晴らしく、またオープンテラス席は納涼床としても活用され、涼を感じながら京都の雅な夜を過ごすことが出来るでしょう。 京都市内には他にもスターバックスがある一方で、景色の良さなどからこのスターバックスに客が集中してしまい、休日を中心に店内の座席を確保するのが非常に難しいです。加えて客の回転もあまり良くないことにも注意が必要です。そのため、テイクアウトでコーヒー等を注文し、鴨川を散策しながらそれらを堪能する客も多く見られます。 注文カウンターを1階とすると、客席は1階と地下1階にあります(地下とは言え鴨川を見渡せる窓があります)。地下への昇降は階段だけでなくエレベーターもあるため、車椅子等の障碍を持つ方でも気軽に利用できると思います。お手洗いは地下1階にあり、利用には専用の暗証番号が必要になりますが、注文後にスタッフよりその番号が伝えられます。 給仕されるドリンクや料理の質、スタッフの接客対応の質は、他のスターバックスと遜色ありません。 On a clear, calm day, you'll want to spend a moment on the open terrace (however, open terrace seating is only available in summer). The view overlooking the Kamo River is spectacular, and the open terrace is also used as a...noryo-doko (a traditional Japanese floor for the cooler months), so you can spend an elegant evening in Kyoto while feeling the cool air. While there are other Starbucks in Kyoto, this one is concentrated with customers due to its scenic location, and it's very difficult to find a seat inside, especially on holidays. In addition, note that customer turnover is not very good. Therefore, many customers order coffee and other drinks to take out and enjoy them while strolling along the Kamogawa River. The ordering counter is on the first floor, and the seating is on the first floor and the basement (although the basement floor has windows overlooking the Kamo River). There are elevators as well as stairs to go up and down to the basement, so even people with disabilities such as wheelchairs can easily use the restaurant. The restrooms are located on the first basement floor and require a special code, which is given to you by the staff after you place your order. The quality of the drinks and dishes served and the customer service of the staff are comparable to other Starbucks.More

Starbucks at Sanjyo Kyoto! You can sit on the terrace for an hour max and enjoy the view. This almond cream chocolate cake was so delicious. The cream was so nice I wish they had put more!! ・ このスタバの 「アーモンドミルクホイップのガトーショコラ」 めっちゃおすすめで〜す

I’ve been in Kyoto a long time, so I get to all the Starbucks - like every day. For a tourist, this location is good as it’s along the river by the bridge. A major, convenient area in Kyoto. That said, this is not one...of my favorites, as it can getting really crowded with a long waiting line. Starbucks is often criticized here for not having more counter staff. if you want to chill with a sort of river view, go downstairs where there’s much more room and get a table facing the river. A nice break if you’ve been out walking in the sun.More

It is a cute, stylish cafe where we were regulars at every morning during our stay in Kyoto. I recommend the chai latte it was very warming.

The shop faces the river. It is tastefully decorated for Kyoto. There is plenty of seating space. Well located, good service. The coffee, well, Starbucks.

This was my first trip to Starbucks during this visit to Japan. I liked this spacious ( by Japanese standards) , neat and peaceful store. The seating with view of the Kamo river was fantastic! The staff were very nice and courteous. Worth a visit...for sure !More

Get your dependable Joe in a relaxing venue that sits adjacent to the river. There’s a huge open window patio to view the various riparian activities. During peak hours, you may see a long queue of people. From my experience, this moves relatively quick. In...~ 10 minutes, you should be sipping away.More

Like every Japanese Starbucks, the staff here are friendly, smiley and very helpful, more so than those in the US, UK and Ireland. This Starbucks is in a great site, overlooking the Kamo River. My only negative point is the volume of the awful jazz...they were playing. Otherwise, top notch.More

I don't want to step in Starbucks but it's so hot in summer time here, I think all the Starbucks served similar foods and drinks. The most different is this Starbucks at the Main Street sanjo and along the river side, you may sip a...cup of coffee and enjoy the sunshine and view.More

We just had to go to this branch! We had coffee (and I had cake) and admired the view from the bridge. It's too bad they didn't have the outdoor terrace set up. I think this is only done during spring or summer. I think...it's too cold to be sipping coffee outside.More

It would be great if I visit this place during a clear summer weather. Unfortunately, I visited this shop in a rainy autumn weather. On top of it, I went there at night, so there's pretty much nothing to see, because it's so dark outside...and you can't see anything if you're not in balcony.More

The place is "ok" because although the view from the window is pretty neat, the chairs are not. Their a bit uncomfortable both in size and height, and the same goes for the table. But this is only when sitting next to the window (and...the far wall) - the rest of the seats are great, tables too! Comfy, large and the right height. The music was too loud for my taste, though. Couldn't even listen to my own music because their speakers were so loud...More
