Matcha is delicious, but matcha desserts are even better, and the place to have them in Rockville is at Kyoto Matcha. Just about everything to eat and drink inside this modern café in The Block Food Hall at Pike & Rose is a shocking shade of green, from the delicate macarons and crepe layer cakes to creamy soft serve and blended latte drinks topped with cream, red beans, or boba. Lots of flavors complement the earthy taste of matcha, and Kyoto Matcha masterfully blends the powerful green leaf into tiramisu, creamy cake rolls, and sweet lemonade.
Other Asian specialties on the menu include purple sweet potato layer cakes, mochi ice cream, and yuzu cheesecakes, along with plenty of hot or cold drinks with your choice of sugar levels. Kyoto Matcha offers a clean, roomy space for you to meet up with friends to enjoy a dessert, and lots of new items to try on each visit. The café is open seven days a week, starting at noon.
