Daizawa 2-29-1, Tokyo, Japan, 155-0032 Tokyo-to, S

Serves meat, vegan options available. Really close to Shimokitazawa train station, this cafe is friendly and relaxed. A bit of a hippy vibe, complete with hammocks and a little shop selling incense, etc. Menu has a few vegan items, all clearly labeled. Address: Japan, 〒155-0032 Tokyo, Setagaya, 代沢2丁目29−14. Reported to have unreliable opening hours, check ahead. Open Mon-Sat 1:00pm-12:00am, Sun 1:00pm-10:00pm.

Cute place

I love the atmosphere, but they are quick to hustle you to order more food or drink every hour.

Great atmosphere, nice food, a bit pricy

Nice little spot away from the hustle and bustle of the street, where you can cozy up in a book lined nook with a hot meal. Not a 1 $ sign place though.

Cons: Expensive , Few vegan options

Such a cool vibe!

I really enjoyed my first visit to Cafe Stay Happy today. They have an incredible range of teas, coffees, smoothies, cold drinks, craft beer, wine and the meals looked great too. I had a delicious soy chai tea and baked cheesecake. Will definitely be back!

Pros: Really extensive menu of drinks and food , English-speaking staff and menu, Quirky and cool vibe inside

Chilled coffee and cake

I came here with a friend and had a really nice soy milk latte and a piece of vegan cake. Both were great.
The cafe itself is chilled and amazingly decorated, with lots of wall hangings, hidden tables, bookshelves and many many beautiful things on the walls! You can choose to sit at a table or on the floor on a tatami mat.

The only negative was that it was really obvious the guy working there wanted me and my friend to kind of hurry up and pay and leave (we had been sitting chatting for a while) even though it was really quiet. But I still liked the vibe in general and I would still totally go back.

A good place to stay happy!

The cafe has a Lovely chilled out feel and the food was good. I had the vegan organic vegetable curry that came with brown rice and a small side salad. Both tasted nice and fresh. Note this cafe doesn’t take card payment so make sure you take cash to pay. Nice food and relaxed environment.

Lovely place to relax

The hammock portion of the restaurant is divided into small areas, each with tatamis, small tables and cushions and one hammock.

I adored the tiny folding table made entirely of hardwood and the relaxing hammock.

My friends are taller people and I wasn't sure how they would do, but they were game for the experience, even though one of them had a bit of trouble eating pasta with thin carbonara sauce off a plate on a tiny table.

I had a falafel sandwich, iced soy latte and vanilla coffee shake and everything was great.

The owner speaks good English. The menu was marked clearly for both vegan and vegetarian options.

I would happily go back.

It looked kid-friendly- another area had a family seated there with their two very small children.

They have a blog showing the interior and menu:

Excellent vegetarian meal in Tokyo

Of the many vegetarian restaurants we visited in Tokyo, this was our favorite. Great, laid-back vibe, and menu changing daily. We especially loved the soup on a cold day. Make a reservation if you want one of the special tables.

I would happily give this 5 stars but it says that only 100% vegan/vegetarian restaurants can be rated 5 stars on Happy Cow!

A really great cafe! We had a set lunch menu and vegetarian nachos, everything was really tasty. There was a good selection of vegetarian and vegan options which were all labelled very clearly. The staff were really nice and made sure that we understood what we were ordering. Would definitely go back again!

Pros: Really tasty food, lots of vegan and vegetarian op

Cons: No cons!

Cozy Cafe

This cafe is so cute! They have multiple areas for seating including hammocks and traditional Japanese seating. The decorations are super cute and give a hippie vibe. The curry was amazing and the staff was very helpful (great English) when I was ordering as they even offered to vegan-ize other menu items for me. There are also vegan desserts. Try the teas!!! Can’t give full stars because it’s not fully vegan.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Nice Vibe, Great Food

Cons: Small menu

Laid back place

I discovered Cafe Stay Happy last year when exploring Shimokitazwa. It is in a really convenient location, and pretty easy to find (see the picture of the exterior). They have a selection of vegan things, including onigiri, curry, bean croquettes and sandwiches. I always get the bean croquette sandwich, as I love it! It's so flavourful and just right for a light meal or snack. The curry is also really good. They always have vegan desserts, too, but I haven't tried them yet. The owner is really friendly and helpful. They also have DJ sets and events there, so check out their website for details. There are chairs and tables, also an area where you can sit on the floor, and a raised platform with hammocks.

Pros: Tasty food, all clearly labelled, Laid back

Cons: The vegan food selection isn't huge
