Admittedly we wouldn't have gone to this place without Tripadvisor in the first place - we were looking for a breakfast place near the "SCAI The Bathhouse" art gallery.

The coffees were definitely the best we've had so far in Tokyo - and the breakfast was also lovely. I had fresh greens for the first time in 3 days; the eggs on toast were yummy and the ham sandwich was absolutely fantastic.

We ended up not going to the art gallery as we found out it only opens at 12pm and we were too early, but the breakfast was definitely worth the 40 minute walk across the city.

What a quaint little coffee shop! Coffee is wonderful, toasted bread and butter also is a must. We did not wait too long for a table and after a long walk at the UENO park- the coffee and cakes- a welcome respite. ❤❤

One of the oldest restaurants in the area. Fresh vegetables with pickles, miso soup, Japanese pinchos, an eating experience which is worth the effort.

After a day walking around Yanaka we stopped here at night before our train home.

Sat upstairs in the traditional room and there were plenty of locals chatting away.
Had a great time, nice atmosphere which was helped by the sudden summer downpour outside.

Didn't actually sample the coffee, instead we tried some of the interesting beers on the menu. Including a potato beer and a very potent fruit beer. The cakes were delicious too.

The waitress (Maya) working at the time was very kind to us and left a very positive lasting impression. :)

Read about this place in Oliver Strand's Coffee column in the New York Times called "Ristretto." This place was fantastic. No English spoken, but their menus were decipherable. I had a nice breakfast and superb coffee. it was a really fascinating experience. it felt like something out of a Japanese noir picture, a la post-war Kurosawa
