Craving a cup of delicious coffee, why not stop by Ebisu for a wonderful and relaxing day! Ebisu is considered to be foodie paradise in terms of the quality and diversity of food that can be found here. From traditional Japanese cuisine to modern Italian, you can find whatever tickles your fancy. So you could spend the whole day walking around Ebisu, simply jumping from delicious coffee shop to coffee shop or resto. Here is a list of the best coffee spots in Ebisu.
The Ebisu flagship store opened five years ago, but now there are five stores in Shibuya alone. This cafe is always busy, especially on the weekends. The flagship store only has a few seats inside, but there are also a few seats outside. The service is always friendly and welcoming and the coffee is great. Although Tokyo is a huge city, it is surprisingly hard to find a good brew, hence this coffee's popularity! They also have great sweets. You should try the croissant set!
Coffee Tram is by the same company as Bar Trench and Bar Triad, both being awesome bars you need to check out in Ebisu. If you're looking for an upscale and fancy place to have coffee, this is it. You will feel transported to another era because of the look and feel of this place. The coffee beans are roasted on the spot every morning, so you're sure to have delicious coffee. At night, this place becomes Bar Tram, and instead of coffee, you can have their delicious and unique cocktails. No matter the time of day, it's worth the go!
Cafe Park is a beautiful cafe located near Ebisu Park. Its concept is to serve great food made with organic ingredients. They have lots of healthy and delicious meals to try from, and also awesome desserts. If you stop by for a cup of Joe, you might be tempted to try their desserts too. If you like sesame seeds, you should try the Japanese parfait. Yum!
Antico Caffe is right outside of the South gates of the Ebisu station exit. Once you step into the coffee, you'll feel transported to Italy. There are even some terrace seats so you can enjoy people watching while sipping on your latte. The latte here is great and reasonably-priced! The biscottis are delicious too and go perfectly well with the coffee.
If you're looking for a Starbucks in Ebisu, you're in luck, there are five! Although you've probably been a thousand times to Starbucks in your home country, it's worth checking out the local differences and flavors. There often are Japan-limited seasonal flavors, such as the American Cherry Pie and the S'mores frapuccino! Give it a shot (pun intended!)
This lineup is part of a recurrent spring seasonal series featuring sakura drinks.
