Café Très Bon

Restaurants & Cafés


Never mind the location (right above a Seven-Eleven) – you’ll forget you’re in Tokyo as soon as you enter this speciality coffee shop, run by a fellow who looks like he could just as well be serving his masterful drip brews in 18th-century Vienna. Classical is the music of choice here, and there's a cello just sitting in the corner – could it be used for occasional improv sessions? The menu is a long list of coffee and very little else, starting from the standard cup (¥500) to the exclusive ‘Grand Café’. We liked the Kilimanjaro (¥650), a flavourful but soft variety with just the right amount of bitterness. If you need a complete break from the city in Ekoda, there's no better place than Très Bon.
