Four young men run a tea house/café called Rokuhōdō together. They often help out customers with their worries.
- Kyousui "Sui" Tougoku (スイ)
- Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe
- Shop owner and manager of Rokuhōdō. His first name is actually Kyousui, but he is fondly called Sui by everyone. He quit his office job to reopen the tea house he inherited from his grandfather. He learnt the art of tea making from his grandfather and is now a tea expert. His tea is known to have a relaxing attribute and is easy to drink too. Though he seems pretty clueless at times, he is pretty sharp and level headed at others. Although his tea is excellent, he totally sucks at cooking, and as such, his cooking is feared by everyone. He is a big fan of cats, and has a pet cat named Kinako at home, which was a stray he picked up. He is not really on speaking terms with his twin brother, whom he wants to make up with him.
- Tokitaka Nagae (ときたか)
- Voiced by: Yuichi Nakamura
- The main chef at Rokuhōdō. He was Sui's middle school classmate and a popular potter from a young age. After helping Sui with some tableware, he decides to join Sui in re-opening Rokuhōdō and thus becomes one of the first employees. He has a gentle disposition and gives pottery lessons to the retired elderly, who are also regulars at the cafe. He also makes the café's tableware and decides on the main menu.
- Gregorio "Gure" Valentino (ぐれ)
- Voiced by: Daisuke Ono
- He is the Barista at Rokuhōdō. He grew up and learned his trade in Italy. He was an 'angry young man' as a teenager, but after he was taken in by a Barista there, he learnt the art from him which also changed his character. This is also the reason he has a lever operated espresso machine at Rokuhōdō. He returned to Japan since it was his father's country. Although his coffee is extremely delicious, he is totally clueless about his iffy latte art. He is cheerful and outgoing. He is also a member of the local duck boating club. He often has friendly arguments with Tsubaki.
- Tsubaki Nakao (椿)
- Voiced by: Daiki Yamashita
- Rokuhōdō's Pâtissier. Although a terrific Pâtissier, he is an introvert, and tends to get nervous from people's eyes . Though he is completely at home with the others at Rokuhōdō, he is still shy when he gets complimented. He has an extreme sweet tooth, and goes around to other cafes to have their sweets and restaurants when they have sweets buffets. He is in charge of the sweets menu and also comes up with some original menus. He also guided Isago to enjoy eating sweets at cafes, and is referred to as 'Master' by him. He is usually seen teasing Gure.
- Kinako (キナコ)
- Voiced by: Kōhei Amasaki
- Sui's pet cat, but adored by all the members of Rokuhōdō and the customers of Rokuhōdō too. Kinako has a very calm and quiet personality and is often seen in front of the cafe, sunbathing.
