Feel free to follow favy!
bills Yokohama Akarenga ビルズ横浜赤レンガ倉庫
Bills Japan is a restaurant chain that originates from Australia. It has become all the rage in the capital region, and Yokohama's branch couldn't have been located in a better place: the Akarenga Wearhouse building. It's the perfect atmosphere to have a nice breakfast or an afternoon coffee break. The bay window terrace is particularly pleasant. Their claim to fame is their fluffy pancakes!
Goku Teahouse 悟空茶荘
Goku Teahouse is a Chinese cafe that serves sweets and truly beautiful flowering teas in transparent teapots. You'll be glad you stopped here if you plan to visit Yokohama's famous Chinatown. Not only are the menu items excellent, but the decor is one of the quaintest you'll experience in the district. You might want to try some fine Chinese teas such as oolong while you're here.
Located a 7-minute walk from ther Ishikawacho Station (North Exit).
Cafe Salon Sonji カフェサロンソンジン
Cafe Salon Sonji has a super serene atmosphere with a simple decor that blends together modernity and elements of traditional Japanese aesthetics. This is the place to have what Japanese call "hot cakes", which are basically super fluffy pancakes! With a cup of their selected coffee, you'll be in heaven.
Located near the Center Kita Station.
Hard Rock Cafe
This one is pretty self-explanatory! Hard rockers in Japan and around the world have made this one a pillar of the cafe/bar scene in Yokohama for more than 20 years now. The place is conveniently located in the downtown core of the city, near the iconic Landmark Tower (tallest building in Yokohama). You can have some of the most amazing American-style burgers here (with loads of bacon and various other toppings!), but if you want something more cafe-like, they've got you covered too with their sweets and coffees.
Pompompurin, the beret-wearing pudding dog is a super popular character by the Sanrio company (the same company that has brought us Hello Kitty). At this cafe you can get all kinds of light meals and sweets based on the world of Pompompurin. The decor is also from the Sanrio's universe and includes many Gutetama the lazy egg-themed furniture.
Located at a 5-minute walk from the West Exit of the Yokohama Station. You can't miss the store front!
