Green is more than name at Cafe Green Green

Date Posted: 2008-11-21

There’s green, and then there is more green. And if that’s not enough, there’s still added green inside Café Green Green.

It’s absolutely green! Visitors to the Kitanakagusuku café find themselves inundated by green, enough to watch, feel and smell the green. Greenery is interspersed throughout the café, and then extends to the outdoor deck. “I want customers to relax here, says Mr. Iwabuchi, the owner of Café Green Green. “I want them to chat with friends or lovers, read books, visit for a couple beers and delicious pizza with friends, and I want customers to feel time slow down as they look at the green.”

Fresh ideas are always popping into Iwabuchi’s head, and he quickly translates them to reality. Tomorrow night it’s a Beaujolais Nouveau Party, complete with a touch of green and plenty of music to accent the fresh vintage French wine.

He’s experimenting, noting “we are hanging some art of Toshikazu Shimoji, an Okinawan artist here.” Iwabuchi says it goes beyond that, as he’s “changing the inside interior almost every month, sometimes decorating Okianwan art, sometimes pictures. We want to push up people to be more interested in art,” he says.

Set menus are a part of Café Green Green beginning this month. The dinner sets include salad, soup, rice or bread, and drinks. All menus are drawn from famous mainland Japanese restaurants, and Iwabuchi reminds customers not to “forget special homemade apple pie, too. You’ve never seen this kind of apple pie before. It’s wonderful.”

Café Green Green is importing a number of drinks like IZZE, Lorina, Fire Fly and Wilkinson ginger ale. Iwabuchi says he wants to incorporate all sorts of food and drinks at the café. Café Green Green accepts Yen and credit cards, but not U.S. dollars. There is an English menu and an English-speaking staff. Party reservations are available. Parking is available at the café.

To visit Café Green Green, go out Camp Foster’s Legion Gate, continue straight across Highway 330 and continue toward Awase, about 2 kilometers, until you see Kitanaka Soba Restaurant by a traffic light on top of a downhill slope. Turn left at the traffic light, then right about 50 meters later. Follow the small white signs with green lettering down the hill to the restaurant.
