It is located near the World Heritage Katsuren Castle Ruins and Kaichu road. There are 5 popular lunches available at all times, such as their original “three meat and cartilage with wasabi sauce” served with Western-style sake and Okinawa ingredients and their “Ikasumi curry” which has a surprising appearance. They also have Homemade cinnamon rolls that are baked every morning, and are available for take-out as souvenirs. Lunchtime on weekends is often crowded, so you may want to come at another time.

Enjoy an elegant tasting lunch in a cafe located in a remodeled foreign residence!
Plowman’s Lunch Bakery is located in an old remodeled foreign residence. This cafe always has good music flowing through its inviting space. The bread they sell is created by the owner who is a self-taught baker. He started making his bread by copying what he learned from other shops. The key to his bread’s success is the large amount of moisture in his dough and the fact that the fermentation time is considerably long. Items from the sandwich menu can be ordered at any time of the day. Every day at 8:00 a.m. and noon he makes available just 10 special sandwiches that he sells until they are gone! It is also recommended to get some bread for take-out and enjoy the view of the sea and nature of the East coast.
