I used to say you can't find good coffee in Tokyo, but not any more. Skip the Starbucks and go to Taru's Cafe Il Solito. Taru is a legend in Ginza, dating back to 1953. And definitely off the beaten tourist track. While they're more known as a jazz bar, an amazing barista named Glen-O has started catering to us caffeine snobs with his heaven-sent skills during Cafe Il Solito time at Taru. The best cappuccino I've had anywhere. Tell him Erika sent you. I can't guarantee a discount but it's a good convo starter with one of the most interesting people in Tokyo. Don't worry he speaks both English and Japanese.
