chanoma nakameguro
Perched above Nakameguro station in an ultra thin building, Chanoma is a cosy and late night cafe that makes for a great spot to spend the afternoon, or entire night reading, sketching or chatting with friends. The food is good, the lunch deal is great value and the numerous cakes are always a hit with the ladies.

It can get pretty popular at weekends, especially the much coverted window seats as pictured above (doll for illustration purposes only).

NB there’s also a Chanoma up the round in Daikanyama, but we think the Nakameguro one is nicer.
