It was just bound to become an 'odd-couple'-type of relationship when bookstore employee Serizawa bumps into the Goliath (but apparently very meek and timid one), Keito. Falling in love was easy, but how will Keito overcome his meekness to show Serizawa his true feelings? On the other hand, how will Serizawa vanquish his own insecurities about relationships and accept Keito's affections for him? A lot of things can happen under the cafe latte-colored sky...

It was....pretty cute. I liked the fact that it was the seme that was the cute one, always crying (haha) But what really made me curious was.....do the Japanese really see foreigners like that? I mean, Keito is only half foreign, and she's written him as some guy who can only half speak Japanese, is blonde and can't use chopsticks. But still, the idea is pretty cute.
Love it but
I love everthing about this manga and also got teary-eyed over it...but somehow made me sad that relationships in real life aren't like that ... I mean.. Where can you find a real Keito-san these days?...
Fluffy romance with nonexplicit sex at best.
I stumbled across this one a couple of times already, but never read it because of the reviews, mentioning the seemingly unbearable shoujo-like sweetness of this manga. Since I'm a person who likes to read sincere mangas I was worried to have another clueless "I'm-so-cute-and-stupid-and-that's-why-I-cry" kind of character. But this manga wasn't like that at all, so don't worry. It was a calm, perfectly paced romantic read. The art was nice and neat and the storytelling was great too. All in all a very enjoyable read.

Cafe Latte Rhapsody
This was so damn cute. There's something refreshing about reading a yaoi manga that's sweet and romantic, with no unnecessary forcefulness and purely lust-driven feelings. I loved Keito and Serizawa so much. It broke my heart when Keito cried over being treated differently, when he was so kind and pure-hearted. And Serizawa's character surprised me as the manga continued on. Though at first he appeared always cheerful and confident, a different side of him gradually appeared, one that didn't hold himself in very high esteem and even made him feel guilty for wanting to monopolize Keito. He became so much more easy to relate to, and really, he and Keito are such a perfect match. I also couldn't believe how likeable the side characters were. Girls are usually made to be very annoying in BL, but not the girls in this manga. Riri-chan was awesome. Even the troublesome, broke ex-boyfriend I couldn't grow to dislike. Definitely read this one.
I agree with Prettykitty200034 that the story really wasn't that wonderful. Somehow, I just didn't sense the same touch that Kawai-sensei gives to her other stories. Maybe it's that her art and story style is changing, but then I've gotta say that I rather miss her style like in 'Cut' and 'Bond(z)'. Or maybe it all just got lost in the sweetness and the cuteness.
Well, if shoujo-y characters are your type, then this is for you, but personally I miss the intensity of sensei's other works.
without being diabetic. they are the most likeable couple ever. the seme is so cute and such a cry baby and the uke is a kind level headed guy, they are both extremely adorable. the drama is light, and their interactions are pure. the art is appropriate to convey the sweetness of their relationship. must read.
Cutest of the Cute!
This is one of my favourite magnas! It is soooo cute, so freakin' cute! I can't help but smile when I read it and I've read it so many times and I never tire of it. It is so refreshing from your usual yaoi couples. I love that they both have insecurities. I love that Keito is so tall, awkward and shy, not your usual seme. I love Seri's freckles . I love their personalities and how they just work so well together as a couple. I recommend this highly if you are looking for something romantic, sweet and cute
This is the ultimate in feel good fluffy romance <3 amazing. Beautifully constructed, a lovely simplistic plot yet you never get bored and the characters are so full of life and emotion. I felt myself get all teary eyed at times just because of how beautiful some moments were. I seriously want to hug both main characters
I Want a Latte
It's inconceivable how endearing this story is! I, for one, adore these types of sweet, adorable stories, full of sweetnes and adorable characters. ( Too much? ^^ ; ) Although, I love those very mature *nudge wink* mangas, this got me hooked! I can not express just how much I loved this.
However, if you are one of THOSE people who are all, "OmG, ! donT l!k3 n33dy cH@r@cT3rs. SuCh @ crYb@by!" ("omg, i don't like needy characters. such a crybaby") then don't bother, b/c your negative attitude does not need to be directed towards this lovely manga! so there! *humph*
~i don't actually think people on here would dream of writing like that...just trying to convey/exaggerate a point^^ Also, for those of you who have read this entire thing *snaps for you* do you know any other mangas like this one? I'm loving this innocent, naive, pure type thing this story has got going. Sooo....please, with cherries on top and the whole shabang?

TOO GOSHDARN CUTE OMG!
I can't even. Just. Too. Damn. Cute! <3
This is honestly the one pick-me-up manga I can always count on among the 500+ yaoi titles I currently own. Whenever I'm feeling down - whenever I'm worried - I pick this up and whoosh! All the pain goes away! It's like those magic kisses my Momma gave me when I was little...
The characters are so sweet and their love so pure that I feel like I'm being wrapped in layer after layer of exquisitely soft candy-floss, and I don't mind. The thing is, the romance is STILL realistic despite its extraordinary sweetness - people do fall in love like that, as simply and beautifully as that, no questions asked. And people with painful pasts do, indeed, occasionally find that one person that makes it all worthwhile. This is just so beautiful on so many levels. Soul-healing stuff that'll become a staple dietary requirement whenever you're feeling down and your emotional 'sugar levels' need picking up. Don't miss it.
