ROCCA & FRIENDS PAPIER KYOTO is a sandwich parlor known for their fruit sandwiches and original egg sandwich. Their Tapioca Smoothie Sweetened with Amazake and Panna Cotta Tapioca Smoothie are best paired with their sandwiches.
The famous SPAPIER Set
The shop’s SPAPIER Set (¥1,404) lets you choose two from four fruit sandwiches, three egg sandwiches, and three deli sandwiches (additional ¥54), and then select a smoothie drink.
Located on a narrow cobblestone street, ROCCA & FRIENDS PAPIER KYOTO has a distinct, traditional Japanese vibe. The shop is owned by Ms. Irie.
The latticework of old townhouses, built almost 100 years ago, projects a Kyoto-like atmosphere.
The logo design at the entrance has a modern Japanese aura feel to it.

Original Panna Cotta Tapioca Smoothie Mango Passion
The Original Panna Cotta Tapioca Smoothie Mango Passion (¥842) blends the flavors of panna cotta, mango, and tapioca. Its rich texture makes it even more delicious!
Tapioca Soda Float Lychee
The Tapioca Soda Float Lychee (¥702) is a limited edition, lemon-based lychee soda with lychee sherbet. A melon-flavored drink will take its place in August.
Tapioca Soda Float Strawberry
The Tapioca Soda Float Strawberry (¥702) is another limited edition drink that’s generously topped with homemade sweet and sour strawberry sauce. This will be replaced by a cherry-flavored float next.
Tapioca Milk Tea Matcha Milk
Mixing the panna cotta and matcha milk in the Tapioca Milk Tea Matcha Milk (¥734) makes the aroma of the matcha more distinct. The drink uses black tapioca pearls flavored with light brown sugar.
