"Umino": a cafe in Hamanomachi, Nagasaki

A little break at "Umino", an older "traditional" cafe in Nagasaki (and a bit of a local institution).

The shop's retro interior, complete with antique decorations and glass floor by the windows, overlooks the main shopping arcade. There's a hint of quirkiness to the place (and even to the hardworking servers) making it a memorable and comfortable hangout. It has great coffee and snacks too.

Starbucks and Seattle's Best have made their inroads in Nagasaki; hopefully, the "old" cafe culture will remain popular, as it continues to provide some of the more unique and endearing places in the busy commercial areas.
