First Review by soflo

Awesome place - Edit

Went here with a friend for a quick drink and ended up staying till close. This place has an awesome atmosphere with great staff who all speak good English. Met lots of local regulars and quickly became friends.

I think the pricing is reasonable for drinks, I only had a peanut butter sandwich for food so can't fully comment on the menu but it was a pretty good peanut butter sandwich.

There are meat options on the menu but there are many vegetarian options and also at least two or three vegan options I recall seeing so likely they have updated the menu.

Definitely would come back here again, recommend it to anyone looking to relax and have a good conversation with some chill people =)

Pros: Friendly staff, Good atmosphere , Reasonable pricing

Friendly place for locals and foreigners alike - Edit

I need to balance this out... the previous review was unfortunate, I'm sorry that person maybe had a bad experience, but I go there regularly, so I think I have a better idea of how this place runs...

This is one of my favourite places in Tokyo, staff are always very kind, and the idea of the place is to have a friendly English speaking environment for locals to mix with foreigners without any social pressure, and I made a lot of new friends there...

As far as the food and the philosophy, it's not solely for vegetarians, but even the non-vege products are sourced locally and they use as many organic ingredients as they can, so I find it hard to believe that anyone was served any form of convenience store food.

I am vegan, and we can always discuss a food item and where it came from before eating it, there's no problem there.

The main reason I love this place is because of the people, the staff, and the regular guests, and how this atmosphere happily allows any new visitor to the cafe to join in the conversation and feel welcome.

And of course, the owner, Noah, is one of the kindest people in the world, and made me feel welcome in Tokyo right from the beginning :)

Pros: Friendly staff, Good conversation, Changing menu with variety

Cons: HappyCow wont let me give a 5 star rating :/

Not vege friendly - Edit

I went here with an omni friend for breakfast. There was nothing on the menu that was suitable for vegans so I asked the staff and they recommended peanut butter on toast. However this arrived on convenience store bread which contained animal based lard, and the peanut butter was made with milk. Despite the whole interaction being in Japanese the staff were reluctant to let me read the ingredient labels "because they are in Japanese". Even after all this they still charged me 1000yen for the meal I could not eat, which would have been overpriced even if it didn't contain lard and milk. I could not recommend this place less.

For what it's worth, my omni friend's breakfast was apparently not good either.

Cons: dismissive staff, hidden animal products , expensive
