It is sad that this place has closed. The coffee and atmosphere were great. The house in which the pop-up coffee shop was located has been demolished. But there is still Toranomon Koffee, its sister operation in the Toranomon Hills tower, which makes equally good coffee.
The definition of out-of-the-way : hole-in-the-wall, this backstreets coffee house is as easy to miss as it is important that you don't. Wandering the backstreets of Harajuku and Omotesando, I walked past this place twice before finding it. I'd been told that it was THE place for coffee in Tokyo, so I'm glad I eventually found my way in. Friendly service and a chat from the owner, delicious baked custard cubes, and a fresh pour over on ice hit the spot. Soak up the serenity in the peaceful front garden (but don't bring more than 4 of your mates!), and enjoy coffee at its most Japanese - minimal, beautifully presented, and served with a big smile. Definitely my top pick in Tokyo so far.
The definition of out of the way / hole-in-the-wall, this unassuming backstreets coffee house is as easy to miss as it is important you don't. This has been the number one recommendation to me for coffee in Tokyo, and I quickly discovered why. The tiny front garden (don't bring more than 4 friends!), the minimalist layout, the peaceful atmosphere and friendly service make this a worthy entry on any must-visit list. Have a coffee (mine was iced), have a chat to the owner, try a baked custard cube, and soak up the serenity. It's well worth your time.
