Attractive cafes are scattered around in Uruma City on the east coast of the central part of Okinawa, where idyllic landscapes still remain.  “hinata café” standing on the small hill, most of which was sugarcane fields, has a cute orange appearance, which reminds you of a carrot.  Since its opening in 2011, mainly the local customers, ladies as well as families and the elderly get together with smiles in this relaxed space.

The store that has 4 rooms, large and small, have totally 22 seats, and you can feel at ease in a spacious room.  From the large window of the main space that the natural sunlight come in, you can enjoy the rural landscape beyond the lush garden, and several km further ahead, the glittering surface of the Pacific Ocean.  Landscape unique to the countryside of Okinawa invokes a less-than-subtle nostalgia.

The best thing that repeat customers support at this café is meals with a concept of “Be healthy inside the body!”  Every healthy dish using mainly fresh vegetables from Okinawa has simple, elegant flavor.  I can guarantee men and women of all ages happily savor the taste.   

The most popular lunch meal is a buffet style of “healthy plate (1,188 yen with tax included,” which includes brown rice, main dish (white-meat fish with special tomato sauce), 5 kinds of appetizers and a soup.  You can enjoy various well-prepared vegetable dishes as much as you like.  Especially handmaid miso soy milk soup is really healthy and has a fairly good reputation.  Please note that the healthy plates are sometimes sold out by 2PM at earliest because of the popularity. 

In addition to that, if you pay additional 324 yen (tax included) for “lunch cake”, you can enjoy authentic coffee and choose from every kind of handmade cake.

Cute sundries sold at the entrance of the café bring you a happy smile for its variety.   While waiting for your meal to be prepared, you can take a look at the lovely items.  You might find an unexpected souvenir item.

At a comforting location, with healthy dishes with a concept of “locally-grown, locally-consumed,” you can spend a graceful afternoon.  I became full, both body and soul.
