When I posted the link to Cafe Du Monde Japan yesterday, I should have known that some globetrotting Gambiteers would have already visited there. Sure enough — Lindsey Capdepon, a New Orleans native, sent along a bunch of her own photos, along with this note:
I have actually visited the Cafe du Monde location in the photo that you provided a link to. Its not in a kyoto mall, but in Kyoto Station, one of the busiest train stations in the world. My husband and I (both native new orleanians) stumbled upon it a couple of years ago while traveling through mainland Japan. I took over a dozen photos of the place, and I've attached a few for you.
Lindsey gave us permission to share on Blog of New Orleans, and here they are. Thanks, Lindsey!
More pictures under the cut.
