Cafes in Tokyo

Cafés! Oh how we love cafés. The perfect place to grab some breakfast or while away an afternoon, writing your novel and watching swaths of humanity while only having to minimally participate. Sometimes you can even grab some wi-fi and they’re certainly good places to practice your restaurant Japanese in a low-stress environment.

And in Tokyo, there’s a café for whatever your thing is. There are endless incarnations from the far out to the familiar. Whether you’re searching for a super cheap place to get a cup of joe, want to weigh in on the best pizza slice debate, or want to drink on a patio, Tokyo’s got you. You can stay in a manga café, go to artist Yoshitomo Nara’s café, or grab a vegetarian bite.

And of course we can’t forget the allure of maid cafés, butler cafés, cat cafés, owl cafés, hammock cafés… we’ve either already covered them or we’re going to, so watch this space! We’ve even interviewed people about cafés.
