Oysters, okonomiyaki, and momiji manju have long been standard Hiroshima specialties, but it is sweets made with lemons that are becoming a new standard. Hiroshima Prefecture produces the largest amount of lemons in Japan, and lemons grown in the mild climate of the Seto Inland Sea can be eaten right down to the peel.
Sweets made with lemons are not only sweet, but also have a moderate sourness, making them tasty even for those who do not usually eat sweets. In this issue, we will introduce six cafes that offer sweets made with lemons, a local specialty.

Hideaway Cafe in Miyajima

Coffee and Lemon Cake

We recommend the Hiroshima Lemon Cake and Coffee Set. The cake is soft and chewy, filled with chopped lemon, and is richly flavored with Setouchi lemons. The whipped topping and sweet and sour lemon in syrup are a perfect match. You can feel the high quality of the ingredients. The coffee that goes perfectly with the lemon cake is carefully roasted every morning by the owner himself. The coffee is made with the utmost care and goes perfectly with the lemon cake!
