Omotesando Koffee


Restaurants & Cafés


Good luck finding this intriguing coffee shop on the backstreets of Omotesando. Owner Eiichi Kunitomo is the man responsible for other caffeine dens including the nearby Bread, Espresso &, but his latest venture is far more distinctive. He works within a cube frame that can't be much bigger than 3 x 3 metres, pulling espresso shots on a pristine La Cimbali machine. But this is a pop-up shop with a difference: it sits inside a 60-year-old traditional Japanese house. It's a slightly surreal setup, and also one that doesn't leave any space for sitting around, though there's a small courtyard outside which customers can use if the weather's good. The coffee itself is even better than what they serve at Bread, Espresso & – the macchiato got a particularly emphatic thumbs-up on our most recent visit – and you can also get dinky cakes to go with it. Cube-shaped, of course. Omotesando Koffee was originally supposed to be open for just 12 months, but a lease extension meant that it's become a slightly more permanent fixture in the neighbourhood.
