History of Coffee sya Noda

Founder Mitsuhiko Noda’s work around 1970


“Coffee sya Noda” started its history in 1966 on Tsushima Koji Street in Hakata.

Originally named ‘Kissa Idol,’ the establishment was renamed “Coffee sya Noda” in 1970 when it relocated to the second floor of the Fukuoka Asahi Building, a name it has retained to this day.

As a historic ‘old-fashioned coffee shop of Hakata coffee,’ we have maintained the tradition of being a ‘high-quality coffee-centric coffee shop’ since our establishment, earning the patronage of numerous customers regardless of age or gender.

Thanks to our customers, we now operate two brands (Coffee sya Noda and Cake Shop Régent), and our nationwide online shop has also been well-received.
