Efish Cafe is a beautiful spot situated adjacent to the Kamo River.  On a nice day they will open up their floor to ceiling windows along the river, where you can enjoy the summer breeze.  The Efish curry is one of our favorites, Japanese style with chickpea, okra and ground pork.  They curry is available all day which is perfect for inconvenient hour cravings. Their sconces and sandwiches are also delicious and highly recommended.
