Organic coffee and tea, breads made with 100% natural yeast, and a completely smoke-free environment - Bio Cafe provides body and mind a bit of respite in junk-food-glutted Shibuya. With its soft-spoken staff and walls that fade from fuchsia to pearly pink, this quiet little cafe along Spain-zaka attracts a stylish, almost exclusively female crowd.

The front of the shop is a bakery selling fresh breads and pastries. In the afternoon, the cafe is full of ladies who come for the quick and healthy business lunch plate (Y980, until 3pm). At night, the dinner menu brims with salubrious intentions, featuring prix fixe menus designed to beautify the skin (Y3100) and prevent metabolic syndrome (Y3400).

If all the tofu dips, fresh juices, and low-cal desserts start to make you feel like a sinner among saints, fear not. The drink menu offers a selection of reasonably priced Italian wines (Y1900-5000 per bottle) and mixed drinks, like the vitamin-packed organic tomato cocktail (with blood orange juice and Cointreau, Y750) and the mojito-garnished with organic mint (Y650).
