Neighborhood: Japantown
Cuisine: Japanese

A nice budget alternative to the pricier restaurants in the Japan Center, May's Coffee Shop looks like a roadside stand in Kyoto. Seating is at picnic-style tables beside an ersatz bamboo waterfall (the goldfish, however, are real). The Japanese menu, which includes Teriyaki and Donburi rice bowls as well as American favorites like eggs for breakfast or burgers for lunch, is not fancy, but good and prepared with care. Try the house-made Tai Yaki, a traditional fish-shaped pastry filled with a wonderfully intense sweetened Red-Bean Paste. It's great with a steaming cup of bancha tea. Only cash is accepted.
