Kaori’s cakes look good. So good, you just know they’re going to be scrumptious. Born in Kitakyushu, she spent a few years in Australia’s Gold Coast and then ran her own cafe in Kyoto before returning to Kyushu to open shop in Itoshima. Noticing how her family and friends loved sweets, and out of concern for their health, she perfected recipes for ‘crazy cakes’, cakes made without butter, eggs, and dairy. These account for about half of her lineup. Not only are they healthier but they’re guilt-free too! Kaori is also a coffee connoisseur. She pairs desserts to specific blends of organic, fair trade coffee which she also sells inside her shop. For her popular Banana Cake, it’s definitely Ethiopian. Everything is baked daily and all handmade. But don’t arrive late, she sells out!
