Café Find: Omotesando Koffee Tokyo

Omotesando Koffee Tokyo has been reported CLOSED

It was never meant to stay open for more than a year, but this coffee nook has quickly become a neighborhood staple in Omotesando.  If you can find it, you’ll join coffee aficionados lining up to be served by the sole barista running this one-man show.

Turn onto an obscure alley (directly across from a vacant, knee-high, grass-filled lot) and duck underneath the shade of an amber-flecked Japanese Maple.  This coffee den isn’t on a commercial street.  It is nestled inside of a 60-year-old, traditional Japanese house.

You might wait in line for 30-45 minutes.  The most popular drink is a shot of espresso poured over ice, served with thick Japanese milk, and drizzled with a creamy chocolate ganache.  Apart from the beverages, a selection of cubed cannelés is available for takeaway, or to stay: if you can snag the one bench available to patrons in the courtyard.
