I feel like some really good coffee now. I haven't had one for a while I realize. I thought I'd do another coffee post, most of these photos and cafe infos have been shared here before but now you can see them all in one post :)


01. cafe ohanaya - one of my favourite cafes in Jiyugaoka. they do lovely lunch using fresh vegetables from Kamakura. Italian style food and coffee, good selection of organic wines. Vey cosy and lovely but mostly packed with people especially busy hours like 12-3pm.
2-14-20 Jiyugaoka Meguro-ku (google map)
3-4 minutes from Jiyugaoka Station. Closed on Wednesdays and 2nd/3rd Tuesdays

02. OMOTESANDO KOFFEE
Always so so good. See the previous post for details -->

03. Cafe 6-chome
Not that the coffee is amazing but the atmosphere and the food is really good.
Near Jiyugaoka. See the previous post -->

04. Cafe ikanika
You might have heard too much of it here if you are reading my blog for a while...
I'm missing their beautiful cheesecake!! See the previous post -->

05. Amameria Espresso
Musashikoyama may not be the area many of who visit Tokyo would go to, but they make great coffee.
If you are staying in Claska, it would be nice to take a morning walk to Musashikoyama (about 20mins) and also you can take a lovely forest walk in the Rinshi-no-mori Park on the way!
3-6-15 Koyama Shinagawa-ku (google map)
3-4 mins from Musashikoyama station (Meguro/Namboku Line), 1 stop from JR Yamanote Meguro Station.

06. Lo Spazio
Not the best, but one of not so many places to get Italian style espresso in the Gakugeidaigaku area.
3-3-5 Takaban Meguro-ku  2mins from Gakugeidaigaku station.

07. Pan to Espresso to (Bread, Espresso, &)
Cute cafe near Gaienmae/Omotesando.
3-4-9 Jingumae Shibuya-ku (google map)
website

08. Rose Bakery
They now have 4 cafes in Tokyo! I've only been to the one in Marunouchi and Ginza but Kichijoji one looks really nice.
See previous post -->

09. Taste & Sense
Lovely cafe to have in the neighborhood for coffee and lunch!
See previous post-->

10. Coffee at Home
We enjoy hand drip coffee on the weekend. We buy fresh coffee beans from Voila Coffee in Kagoshima, actually many of the great coffee places in Tokyo buy beans from them. They don't ship internationally but if live in Tokyo I recommend shopping from their online store :)


So, I feel like some really good coffee even more now.
Where is your favourite place for a really good cup of coffee in your city?

Hope you are enjoying summer, here it's boiling.... Keep cool!

    1. Hi Cara, hmmm near Okura... I can't think of one around there, closest would be Bar Del Sole in Roppongi but it'd be about 15-20mins walk from Okura. If I remember a place I will let you know!
      My shop is very close from Okura, if you have time and interest please pop in to say hi :) (open on fri, sat, sun only)

      Delete
  13. Thank you so much! I actually ended up booking a place by Shiba Park, but will try Bar del Sole and also visit your store. Again, thanks much! Best, Cara
