My favourite place is the cafe inside the Japanese building, from where you can admire the garden scenery while taking a sip of your green matcha bowl.
Come around for a peaceful place to rest during your discovery of the Nanzen-ji temple neighbourhood.

Personally recommend the rainy Murin-an.
Aim to create the mellow space which enables visitors to escape from everyday stress.
