【Cafe with a view / 海が見えるカフェ】

先日お邪魔したのは、川棚町(かわたなちょう)にある BUCO café (ブーコカフェ)さん。佐世保市のハウステンボスからは15~20分ほどのドライブ。2019年の5月にオープンしたそうです。

The other day we visited BUCO café (boo-ko cafe) in Kawatana-cho. It is about 15-20 min drive from Sasebo’s Huis Ten Bosch. The cafe opened in May 2019.


The building used to be a main house of a shipyard before it was renovated. A wood stove keeps the place warm during this season. Everything is so stylish!

Pizza toast & cheese toast (back).
Non-alcoholic beer & cappuccino.


I wanted to try their “Gratin-doria (rice au gratin, 850 yen)” but they said it’d take about 20 min. So I changed my order to Pizza toast (400 yen) which turned out to be very tasty. The rich foamy cappuccino (400 yen) was also good.

Though open only on weekends and holidays, the cafe is definitely worth the trip. Staff is not perfect in English and is yet to prepare English menu but is friendly and welcomes all guests. Highly recommended!
