Mugs/
Nakano: Cafe

€Data
Nestled in among a
warren of residences
and mom-and-pop
stores, this Nakano
chill zone offers a
place to meditate
over your mocha. A
placid gold Buddha
sits beside an old-
fashioned globe in
the center of the
room, which is domi-
nated by an autumnal
color scheme.

Mugs Cafe is the
joint venture of
three young design-
ers, and the decor
is a fusion of fif-
ties cool and Asian
lounge. Sheep dangle
from a mobile over
Eames-style fiber-
glass chairs and
black leather
couches. On the
walls hang paintings
and photos by local
artists.

The pan-Asian menu
is written on the
wall-cum-blackboard
behind the kitchen
area and lists un-
usual items such as
bahn mi Vietnamese
sandwiches (Y800)
and cold tofu topped
with Chinese pre-
served eggs (Y500).
They also have a few
Middle Eastern
dishes like falafel
(Y700) and Turkish
rice pudding (Y450).
Thumb through the
stacks of design
magazines while you
sip on a cup of
coffee, or tuck into
a late lunch. Lunch
specials change
daily and are avail-
able until 4pm.
