33 of the Best Coffee Shops in Tokyo

So here’s the thing, I know this post is about 33 of the best coffee shops in Tokyo. But spoiler alert, I don’t actually drink coffee, I’ve never enjoyed the taste – not in drink format, not in cake format not in candy for format, basically not in any format. Instead of coffee, I usually fill myself up with pastries and non-coffee drinks such as matcha green tea, tea lattes, smoothies or simply just water. However, I do adore going to coffee shops, especially when I travel because there is nothing like strolling around a new city with a fun drink in hand or sitting during the late afternoon and chatting away about the days’ plans and reflecting on all the amazing moments.

33 best coffee shops in tokyo japan

We are going to Tokyo in November and because I love going to coffee shops so much I wanted to prepare, so I rounded up the cutest, most Instagram-able, best coffee shops in Tokyo for our trip. I know there are a bunch of other “best coffee shops in Tokyo” list that exists but I found them to be 5 shops here 10 shops there and none of them gave me what I wanted all in one place, so I wanted round up as many as I could find and include any notes I had on what I’ve heard about the shops

In all transparency, I don’t think it’s physically possible for us to visit all of these during our 7 days stay in Tokyo, so I made sure to highlight my standout favourite coffee shops in Tokyo for our upcoming trip down at the bottom. Also if you are going to Tokyo as well and looking on for a guide on where to stay in Tokyo find mine here.

Sidenote, this list of most Instagram-able coffee shops in Tokyo is just in alphabetic order.

PS: For ease, I also added everything into a Google My Places list!

Out of all the coffee shops on this list, this is actually the only one I visited back during on trip in 2017. We came up here late at night, got a hot tea to share, went upstairs to the 2nd floor and just sat and watched people cross the street. It was actually extremely enjoyable because you could see people getting so excited to do it for the first time.

Personal Roundup: Best of the Best Coffee Shops in Tokyo

And that brings me to the end of my overall round-up, we don’t leave for Japan trip until November so if you have any recommendations or comments on what you think are the best coffee shops in Tokyo please let me know in a comment below!

In an ideal world, we would go to every single one of the 33 coffee shops I listed, but realistically my personal top contenders are also probably the places what also feature pastries, sweets and baked goods in their photos:

Top 10 Most Instagram-able Coffee Shops in Tokyo I Really Want to Visit

  1. Alfred’s Tea Room, purely based on aesthetics
  2. Aoyama Flower Market Tea House, because it looks absolutely stunning
  3. Blue Bottle Cafe, because a friend of mine couldn’t stop talking about how good their actual coffee is
  4. Café Kitsuné for the Instagram
  5. DUMBO Doughnuts and Coffee because of the image with the doughnut on top of the drink
  6. Little Darling Coffee Roasters because of their take out boxes
  7. Melting In The Mouth because they have ice cream and what looks to be tasty smoothies
  8. Path Cafe because of note on that chef that travelled to learn the secrets
  9. Starbucks Reserve Roastery because it’s actually what started this list
  10. The Local Coffee Stand cause again the gram seems popping.
