Three of Shimokitazawa’s best coffee houses: The Plaster’s Café

Metropolis Magazine

Opened a little over a year ago, The Plaster’s Café is a five-story hive of funky goodness, not the least of which is perfectly brewed coffee. Visitors start on the first floor, dubbed “the Food Cart,” where they have the option of treating themselves to organic coffee and ice cream, craft beer, or homemade curry. From there, beverage and snack of choice in hand, they can settle outside at a table or wander up to the rooftop gardens. In between are floors of shops, galleries, and artist studios that charm and entice.

Fair warning: the coffee is too delicious to let it go cold, but it will be easy to lose track of time.

Open daily: 11am-7pm (8pm in summer)
