Guild Coffee


Restaurants & Cafés


Coffee roaster Yasutaka Hisamitsu ran the oddly named Dun Aroma shop in Toritsu-Daigaku for over a decade before opening this dinky sister outlet in Kagurazaka in late 2010. There's jazz wafting off the record player, but the interior at Guild is a riot of conflicting influences, somewhere between an old-fashioned coffee house and a theme park dungeon. With seating for just four people, they're clearly aiming more at the takeaway crowd, and while the coffee is worth the ¥600-700 you'll pay to drink in, it's a steal if you're taking out: ¥250 for the coffee of the day, and ¥350 for other drinks on the menu. There's a choice of four blends and a dozen-odd single origin coffees, prepared drip-style and available regular, strong or demitasse. We opt for the Dark 240°C Blend, which is rich but not overbearingly so, the chocolates offset by a citrus tang. Coffee beans are also available to buy, and the prices aren't exorbitant.
