Sagafredo Zanetti Espresso
Sagafredo Zanetti Espresso is a popular Italian chain cafe in Japan. It specializes in espressos but you can get a variety of other drinks and some foods too.
The interior is pretty sleek and modern. It's the perfect place to enjoy a nice cup of coffee or a light meal in good company.

They have a couple of kinds of colds drinks that are either fruit or coffee based. Their Blood Orange Granita is quite popular on the juice side and the Espresso Granita is popular on the coffee side. They also serve some limited edition special drinks such as the penguin one above.
