Occupying a beautifully restored timber warehouse, this combination roastery and cafe is a convivial and very hip spot to relax in for a serious cup of coffee or a mid-afternoon snack. The food is unexpectedly good, with nice grilled-cheese sandwiches and an excellent open-faced mozzarella sandwich (sort of a caprese on toast) studded with tasty cherry tomatoes fresh from the garden.

The New Zealand-based cafe offers Antipodean favorites like flat white and long black, along with cold brews, lattes, and machiattos. Fresh-roasted beans sell for around Y1800 for 250g. There are benches and a couple of communal tables inside, where you can watch the roastery in action through the glass walls, or you can grab one of the patio seats out front if the weather is nice.
