Omotesando, a boulevard to rival those in Paris, is prime Tokyo real estate. Running from Meiji Shrine in Harajuku down to Aoyama-dori, it is the place to see and be seen; a hotchpotch of experimental architecture housing exclusive stores, restaurants and cafes in numbers you won’t believe. It is the latter category we want to focus on today, and boy are you in for a treat.  

Cafe culture in Tokyo is booming. From old school joints to the super hip, the city has it all, and Omotesando is one of the scene’s hubs. A must-visit for any coffee hound, tea junky or pasty addict, you’re sure to find what you are looking for here. Find our top 14 Omotesando cafes below:
