Tucked on a side street in Harajuku, this Italian-inspired cafe is stylish, cozy, and offers some of the best java found in Tokyo. The cafe is simple and comfortable, furnished with wooden tables and has some of Colani’s sketches on the walls. The coffee is outstanding – not the overpriced, watery sludge often offered in sadly too many cafes in this city. It is rich, full-bodied espresso with the perfect balance of bittersweetness. We also tried the hot chocolate, which came frothy and adorned with melted marshmallows.
