“Delicious, but expensive and smokey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

This place is right by Hatagaya station. They seem very serious about coffee and I got a dynamite cafe au lait served with natural rock sugar that really enhanced the taste. Service was patient and friendly to this gaijin.

So why only 3/5? There's no separate smoking section and it's not very big, so shortly after I sat down I realized I had to get my coffee to go as I'm allergic to cigarette smoke. The drink cost 550JPY and arrived in a 8oz. cup with 2oz. of room, so I paid roughly a dollar an ounce. I won't be returning for that price and smokey atmosphere.
