Very Berry Cafe
CONTRIBUTED BY NAOMI K.
Almost hidden behind a building facing the street, this cute burger cafe might be easy to miss, but the several welcoming “open” signs beckon you in. With a large grass lot, parking is ample and there is spacious seating inside. Stylized like an American diner with big booths and Americana decor. I especially enjoyed the rotary phone mounted on the wall like a relic of the past and a poster of the Disney’s “The Rescuers” released in 1977!
The menu included several burger options (hamburger, cheeseburger, bacon burger, teriyaki burger, as well as a kid’s sized burger) which all come with the option of a set with drink only or drink and fries. There are several drink choices ranging from cola to jasmine tea to juice, and also a la carte options like an iced caramel latte.
The burgers were impressive, great tasting and generous in portion. They were also quite reasonably priced (¥550-¥650). The fries were potato wedges which could have been crispier but maybe they were in a rush.
If you are not in the mood for a burger, there are also options for curry, a couple different pasta dishes, chicken nuggets and taco rice.
Save some room for dessert because they offer a number of portion sized desserts (tiramisu, apple pie, cheesecake, etc).
They have kid friendly menus, do to-go orders, have English menus and take credit card! They also sell some handmade jewelry and coasters at the front counter.
Definitely a close drive from Courtney or MCT, for a great burger in a cozy diner atmosphere.
