This place is a tiny little cafe in Shibuya. The coffee was really good! The service was really friendly. Limited seating, but we went early so was nice and quiet. If you like coffee you’ll like this place.

While on our way to some nearby attractions, we stopped for a coffee at this place which opens early and is therefore a great option for people like me who wake up early. The place is a "hole-in-the-wall" as others have pointed out, but staff...More

From a western perspective. This latte was equal to good quality coffee from home. Don’t blink or you miss it. We stopped in on our way to join maricar tour.

About Life is a glorified window, not a coffee shop. There is no seating to speak of, and it’s really a place to grab a cup of coffee on the go. It’s the exact opposite of the kind of cozy, spacious coffee shops most people...More

We’ve spent 7 days in Japan and finally found a hole in the wall that serves Melbourne-like coffee, even a soy latte to boot. And they open early! On Wednesdays there’s also a mobile pastry truck that does the best pastry I’ve had in Japan.

The coffee was excellent and the stuff very well to the point. They took their time to make the coffee in order to get the quality required for an excellent cup of coffee. You can only seat outside therefore don’t expect Starbucks experience. But expect...More

About Life is a pleasant 10 minute hike up from central Shibuya. It is best for takeaways (little sitting room) and if you need a good coffee before 10 am (when most other cafes open).

This is a very tiny place just along the road who serve very good coffee, cappuccino and pastry. They have also a very small room in case of bad weather

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
