With reasonable prices and a large menu selection of drinks and tasty food, Climax gives that other famous coffee shop a run for its money.

The Japanese café chain Climax Coffee has been serving Okinawa since 2007, and with its focus on atmosphere and customer satisfaction, it’s no wonder that more shops are cropping up on island, including American Village.


Expect to find all the typical café drinks, including lattes, espresso, and chai, and new twists on old favorites. The coconut chocolate latte was delicious, though more like a liquid dessert with all the whip cream and drizzled chocolate, while the earl grey latte was creamy and full of earl grey flavor.

Pancakes & Pastries

While the muffins and baked treats on display are tempting, many like to indulge in Climax’s pancakes. They offer plain pancakes or “American” style with eggs and bacon, plus five kinds of “dessert” pancakes loaded with whip cream, fruit, and other goodies. We recommend the milky macadamia pancakes or, for a Japanese twist, try the green tea pancakes with sweet mung beans and brown sugar syrup.


Climax’s lunch and dinner menu outshines most other coffee shops’ limited selection. Choose from small snacks like fries, sweet cream cheese-filled soft pretzels, or one of four paninis, or one of their fresh burgers (we love the avocado cheeseburger). In their more established Araha Beach location, there’s also pasta, omelets, carrot soup, and Japanese curry.


The investment in the atmosphere of Climax’s establishments is evident. Modern design with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and open floor plans attract lots of customers through its doors. Combined with its many delicious menu items, Climax’s cafés are great spots to meet friends for a meal, or stay awhile and get a lot of work done on your laptop.
