Latte art goes 3D at this kawaii coffee joint in Harajuku

After a long day in Harajuku of eating colored treats and checking out the fun shops along Takeshita Street, you may be looking for a quiet place to unwind and recharge. Right around the corner and off the beaten path, there is a little coffee spot called Cafe Reissue. This is a small shop with friendly staff and a few tables, but since it’s located near Harajuku, the coffee is, of course, kawaii in every way.

What sets this unique coffee shop apart is its made-to-order 2D or 3D custom latte art! That’s right, you can either choose photo options from the menu or bring in your own picture to be printed right on your cup of joe.

And if you worked up an appetite from snapping all the Instagram-worthy photos, you can also order snacks or lunch to pair with your adorable beverage. There’s an even a spot to charge your cell phone or other portable devices. It’s definitely a nice place away from the hustle and bustle of busy Harajuku to relax before the next leg of your Tokyo adventure.


Grab your own 3-D latte

Where: 3-25-7 Jingumae Tanji Bldg. 2F, Shibuya 150-0001 Tokyo
Hours: Open every day 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Cost: Starting at about 600 yen ($5.50) and up if you want 3D art or other extras. (no credit cards)
