Our Story

KanataCafé は、公正で貿易、地元産のコーヒー、美味しい栄養価の高いカナダと日本の食べ物を持続可能な源泉から公正な価格で提供する、カナダで初めての、カナダをテーマにした家族経営のカフェです



Kanata Café is the first and only Canadian themed, family owned and operated café in Yokohama which will offer fair trade, locally sourced coffee as well as delicious and nutritious Canadian and Japanese food at a fair price from sustainable sources.

The name Kanata is an indigenous Canadian word meaning “village” or “settlement” which is the origin of the name of Canada. It is also an traditional Japanese word that means “far off” or “far away” and our goal is to be a hub for the community of Myoorenji, a bridge of diverse cultures, as well as a place where anyone can come and relax in a wonderful environment, learn to speak English, perhaps be a venue for local musicians, and most importantly, enjoy some of the best food and beverages around.

We strive to serve all members of the local area and beyond in the best way we can while constantly innovating and researching methods of food and beverage preparation in the most economically and ecologically feasible way possible.
