Kadoya Shokudo has been serving cafeteria food like udon noodles and rice bowls in Minoshima Shotengai, one of Fukuoka’s shopping streets, since 1920, but it wasn’t until the ice candy boom after World War II when the second-generation owner started selling ice candy.

Today, the cafeteria is being managed by the fourth-generation owner, and a lot of good things have stayed the same. From May to October, the ice candy is on sale. You can choose from six ice candy flavors--milk, azuki red bean, coffee, matcha, pineapple, and orange--for as low as ¥50 each!

Look for the Japanese-style building located at the crossroad of Minoshima Shopping street.

The ice candy is held together by a stick embedded from an angle.

The cafeteria has a lot of history.
