If you’re a lover of all things matcha—listen up. The award-winning Matcha Cafe Maiko is opening up their doors very soon (Hello, Spring!).


It has been made popular in Honolulu and has been slowly expanding across the U.S. since. The Canadian location is set for Richmond, on Saba Road. They’re best known for their matcha (obviously) ice cream and shaved ice.

The decadent ice cream is as lavish as it is delicious. Known as the ‘Shogun,’ the cone is filled with premium soft-serve ice cream and topped off with a golden leaf.

Their claim to fame is their matcha or houjicha soft-serve and you have a variety of toppings to choose from. They include: chestnuts, mochi, azuki, chocolate syrup, black sugar or soy bean flour.
