The Most Visit Worthy Kissatens (Japanese Cafes) In Shibuya!


Kissatens (Japanese quaint cafes) are sort of a time-slip to Japan in another era. It's Tokyo like you've never seen it before. Although Tokyo is a hyper-modern city, these cafes transport you to a calm and retro place you'll grow to love.

Feel free to follow favy!

Lion (名曲喫茶ライオン)

This cafe is completely unique and you probably have to be an old soul to appreciate this kind of place. The cafe was established in 1926 and will directly transport you to another era. There is an impressive sound system which plays classical music. Please note that talking and pictures are not allowed. Although it's in the heart of busy Tokyo, it's a quiet haven where you can come sit and gather your thoughts and relax. Drinks are 550 yen and up.

Coffee Shop Top (珈琲店トップ 渋谷駅前店)

TOP Coffee Shop is a cafe with a retro vibe where you can come have a nice cup of coffee with some friends. You can also grab a bite here while you're at it! Their open toast sandwiches are quite popular. You can try the oyster toast or sardine toast for example.

Aoyama Ichibankan (青山壹番館)

Aoyama Ichibankan is also a quaint cafe with a nostalgic atmosphere. It has a very elegant interior with Mahogany wood and beautiful teacups. You can also stop by for breakfast for a nice morning set (550 yen), it comes with toast, a boiled egg, half a banana and coffee.

Paris COFFEE (珈琲の店 Paris COFFEE)

Paris COFFEE is a small cafe which has a limited, yet interesting and affordable menu. Coffee is about 500 yen and cake is about 500 yen. Most kissatens serve the famous pizza toast, here it's 300 yen. So you can have a snack to go with your coffee. If you order a coffee with whipped cream, you'll be impressed by the presentation's intricacy!

Cafe Renoir

Renoir is an old-style cafe with a relaxing atmosphere and great drip coffee. Simply put, it has the atmosphere of a luxurious hotel lobby. The kind of place you can enjoy time slowly going by and feel like you have nowhere to be for a short and enjoyable moment.
It is not the type of place to rush in and rush out. Here, you can slowly enjoy your hot cup of coffee in this cozy, yet fancy atmosphere. You can also have some light dishes, such as sandwiches, or sweets.
