Toranomon Koffee, Toranomon Hills

Looks like a proper third-wave coffee house.

They’ve got fancy pastries.

I think this was an iced cafe mocha.

Iced latte.

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.

Bridge Coffee, Kappabashi

Had some coffee here while in Kappabashi kitchen town, though I forgot to take a photo of it. It was ok; not particularly special.

I think what people seem to like is their ice cream, which I didn’t try.

Lol. Wasn’t brave enough to try these.

Tried an iced latte. I liked it better than other Tokyo coffee houses I checked out, but I still prefer SF coffee.
