Streamer Coffee Company


Restaurants & Cafés


Latte artist Hiroshi Sawada is a celebrity on the Japanese coffee scene, so there were some fairly heightened expectations when he opened his own cafe in Shibuya in 2010. Streamer Coffee Company lives up to the hype, especially if you're a sucker for the kind of ornate foam squiggles that are Sawada's speciality. With its unfussy decor and long communal table in the centre of the room, the place might remind Western visitors of coffee shops back home – complete with free wifi. The star attraction on the menu is the Streamer Latte, served in a soup bowl-sized mug so as to give the resident artistes a large canvas. The designs are invariably exquisite – it's always tough to resist taking a photo when it arrives – though the drink itself will be too milky for some people. There's a tempting selection of cakes on the counter that seems to change each time we go; the cinnamon roll isn't all that spectacular, but the carrot cake, when they have it, is a delicious indulgence.

I checked this place out nearly a year ago. It was pretty comfy and quiet when I went out there. It kind of reminded me of the coffee shop back at uni.
