In our “home”, everything has a little story in it. Not just the people, even the dishes and the chairs inside our cafe, all have their little stories in it. (Ask us when you come visited, ok?) We believe that every story has a heart, it is exclusive and valuable, it is meaningful and full of memories and emotions. This is why we love sharing stories and listen to yours.

We are not just share the food & drinks that we liked; we also share our love with you. When we have time, we love to talk to you. Our customers are just like friends!!

Our story — The Dream of Y93

It all began with a dream deep inside the hearts of our chef, Alan, and his loving wife, Susanna, to create a place in this beautiful and energetic city where people can share their stories and connect with each other through good quality Japanese cuisine.

For Y93 café, 2018 was a year filled with hardship yet a new beginning as well. Chef Alan who used to be successful in his career became a man with brokenness. He was feeling lost and could not see happiness. In the midst of sadness, — (We see God!!!) however, it was also the time when Chef Alan and Susanna welcomed their youngest boy to the world. It was a year in which they found their passion and love together.

Alan and Susanna used to always invite their close friends and family over to their home to enjoy their private kitchen cuisine, where they shared their love of good food and laughter. With a passion for Japanese cuisine, they decided to open their own Japanese restaurant.

Alan and Susanna are thankful to be part of the community and hope that their customers will enjoy their food and services every time they visit Y93 café – a place to feel connected.
