Sarutahiko Coffee, Ebisu & Sengawa

Went to this coffee shop in two different locations.

The Ebisu shop shares its location with another business.

Got an iced latte. It’s somewhat of a safer choice for me, here in Tokyo. It was ok.

Noticed these little dog routers around town.

The Sengawa location looks pretty sweet and has two stories.

Lol. I don’t even know what they were trying to say.

Tried a drip coffee this time. Disappointed. I think I should just stick to the lattes, or bring coffee from SF lol.

And the bathroom was clean. Tiny, but clean.

They’ve got fancy pastries.

I think this was an iced cafe mocha.

20160416toranomonkoffee09

 

Iced latte.

20160416toranomonkoffee10

 

Hand-drip coffee.

We tried the baked custard too; it was good.

The coffee was ok but nothing to write home about. I think a lot of places in Japan like to burn / dark roast their coffee beans. Maybe next time I’ll try more of the pastries.

Some friends worked here and decided to show us the place. It’s Italian style, but I’m not sure it really is Italian (not that it particularly matters).

One great thing about eating in groups is you can all share a large number of dishes! Overall the food was ok. Seems like a college-goer type of meal.

I liked the sauce on the steak and potatoes, which was some sort of sweet and savory demi-glaze.
