Nihonbashi Cafést

Restaurants & Cafés


Though it sits on a narrow lane opposite some of Ningyocho's few remaining old buildings, Nihonbashi Cafést couldn't be more determinedly modern. This two-in-one venue boasts a cafe area with free wifi and ample power sockets for the nomad worker crowd, flanked by a large window that looks straight into a wood-panelled film studio that can be rented out for Ustream broadcasts. There are half a dozen small tables, plus a counter running along the window that's got enough space for a laptop and a cup of Joe. The funk background music is piped through expensive-looking overhead speakers, and there's a cherry-red La Marzocco espresso machine behind the counter, though judging from the acrid, virtually undrinkable caffe latte we get served, the staff don't know how to use it properly.

I think Cafést deserves another look -- possibly new barista or better training. Unlike the reviewer, I had a decent cappuccino with some impressive latte art. Btw, for others looking to find the place, it's tucked in the small alley right next to the post office.
