Please check out the cafes below for the best cafe suggestions in Shinjuku.
Blue Bottle Cafe
They have branches all over Tokyo, this one is located in Shinjuku at the South exit of the station.
Every cup of coffee is brewed for every customer in front of their eyes. So it takes longer, but tastes much better and is more flavorful.
The regular drip coffee is 450 yen. They also offer some espresso type coffee, like cafe latte (520 yen).
Cafe de Bore
Their sweets are particularly good, but they also have light meals such as pasta and curry rice.
The fruit tarts are great, and a coffee set is about 1,200 yen.
They are famous for the fire oven baked pizzas, but they also have delicious coffee and desserts!
There are a variety of desserts available. You can order NY cheesecakes, muffins and more from 260 yen. Drink sets are available from 600 yen.
At this branch, they serve savory galettes!
You can also get a dessert set. It is almost a crime to visit this cafe without trying the creme brulee, but if you can't decide which dessert to get, you can also get a beautiful cake assortment!
Honey toasts are huge so it's best to share, they're about 1,000 yen each and comes in ton of different flavors. For example soft tiramisu, chocolate banana, caramel, etc.
Cafe La Mille
Cake sets (cake + coffee) are a little over 1,000 yen.
Their "Souffle Pancake" is probably the most popular menu at Hoshino Coffee. You can make it double or single slice, and its fluffiness is what makes everyone want to come back and eat them again.
They also serve pancakes, parfaits, and light meals.
How about coming for an afternoon tea set (3,000 yen) and comes with sandwiches, different types of dessert, coffee, etc.
The system is quite nice, it's 390 yen for 30 minutes, 990 yen for 2 hours, and a 10 minute extension is 100 yen. And that includes an all-you-can-drink plan!! Quite a nice deal I'd say!
