Shibuya: Coffee shop

¤Data
There are plenty of
third-wave cafes
around Tokyo, but
this old-school shop
is decidedly first-
wave, one of the
pioneers that in-
spired today's crop
of specialty coffee-
houses, both in
Japan and abroad. As
such it's become
something of a pil-
grimage destination
for coffee fanatics
from around the
world.

If you take a seat
at the long front
counter you can
watch the coffee-
making process up
close, and also take
in the display of
exquisite porcelain-
ware that's used to
serve the coffee
here. In addition to
the counter there
are several individ-
ual and group tables
in back - the shop
is a lot larger than
it looks from the
outside - with some
rather large flower
arrangements that
dominate the space.

Although it's the
kind of place you'd
expect to be non-
smoking, smoking is
in fact allowed. A
cup of the very
strong house blend
is Y850, with other
options like cafe au
lait priced at
around the same
level. There's also
tea, and traditional
coffeeshop dessert
options like chiffon
cake.
