Paddlers Coffee


Restaurants & Cafés


Found on the second floor of the shiny Todd Snyder store close to Shibuya’s Miyashita Park, long-time Portland resident Daisuke Matsushima’s tiny but virtually flawless Paddlers is the only place in Japan dealing in beans from Stumptown Coffee Roasters, the Rose City’s famed Third Wave pioneers. Despite its curious and somewhat hard-to-find location, the bare-bones shop attracts an international crowd of roast enthusiasts – hardly surprising considering the quality on offer. Impeccably executed hand drip is the order of the day here, so you’re sure to get a cup of smooth and fully aromatic brew on every single visit. Expect to pay around ¥600 per drink, and avoid going on an empty stomach – you won’t find any sweets on the menu here.
