San Francisco

dianaly Hyper


Located on the 1st floor near Kinokuniya in SF Japantown, Matcha Cafe Maiko finally made its way to SF! I recently went to the soft opening this past weekend and let me just say that even though I waited an hour (but was also the 3rd in line!), it was well worth it. 

I ordered the Maiko Special (pictured above) and it was pretty good! But one of the workers told me that what I had ordered isn’t the best on the menu (though it is in the Hawaii location!); instead, he recommended to order the drinks which I will definitely do next time when the hype dies down a bit so the lines are more manageable :’)

I also had the chance to try what my friends had ordered:
- Vanilla soft serve 
- Matcha Tea
- Kokuto Matcha Kuromitsu Kinako 

I actually prefer the last two listed above compared to what I had ordered so I’d recommend getting either of those two if you ever get a chance to visit this place. The grand opening is on 3/31 from 1-9PM and 4/1 1-10PM! Happy indulging! 😊
