Suzuki-seisakuzyo - it's a local cafe located in Machiya, pretty small space but quite comfortable. it's a good way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. You can see their dishes at this link below: https://tabelog.com/en/tokyo/A1324/A132401/13107909/dtlphotolst/1/

Coffee Shop Galant It's a kissaten (喫茶店), literally a "tea-drinking shop", is a Japanese-style tearoom that is also a coffee shop. They also serve sandwiches, spaghetti, and other light refreshments. You will feel time literally stopped there in the 80s...

Right by Shibuya station, this understated cozy coffee shop supposedly was the inspiration for Blue Bottle Coffee. My recommendation is to sit at the counter to watch the baristas do their work. From warming the cup, hand selecting each piece of coffee bean, hand dripping, to selecting unique coffee cups, there won't be a dull moment just sitting and watching their artisanal coffee crafting! For something visually unique, order the cold "Au Lait Glacé" which will be served in a wine glass. Amazing rare cheesecake to pair with your drink, huge beautiful seasonal flower arrangements. Aim for weekdays and avoid 3:00pm cafe rush hour. No Wi-Fi.

Love the interior of this cafe. They renovated Japanese traditional house into a modern cafe. You can feel warm wooden touches as they remain some parts of old house. They serve handmade desert and delicious food! You will definitely love being there!

This is one of the best cafe to use when you work at night since this place is 24/7. This cafe is a part of a hotel lobby, so the service is very nice. You can stay here very long and even you can bring in a little food or snacks. The price is very reasonable as well.

This is a workable cafe with WiFi and plugs near Gotanda Station. It is very hard to find a workable cafe in Tokyo.

This cafe has a long table and a great view. There is a Mexican restaurant next to this cafe and you can use the table there as well. Very workable cafe with plug and WiFi, and located in the station, so it is really a great access.

This coffee shop is popular for foreigners, so there are always many foreigners and some staff can speak English. Of course the coffee is amazing. Although there are many shops where the taste is not good, at this shop it's amazing.
