Coffee in Tokyo: Streamer Coffee Company, Shibuya


Right, I’m going through a lot of old photos that I need to put up on my blog… And here is an oldie from Streamer Coffee Company from over a year ago! You’ll hear a lot about them if you Google “best coffee in Tokyo” or something similar.

That, unfortunately, is a bit of a stretch. They’re famous because the coffee is pretty. Served in giant bowl-like mug that would be quire inviting for a quick dip if diving right in wouldn’t destroy the beautiful feathered milk patterns on top.

There’s free Wifi (for tourists only last time I went – don’t know if they’ve changed this bizarre policy… it is 2016, or so I thought…), plug sockets and a nice minimalist environment in which one can settle down and study with one’s mood boosted by feeling comfortably hipster.


But the latte – pretty thought it is – is fairly weak. I remember it being comforting yet dull, as warm milk is wont to be *sigh* And at ~550 yen a pop, it ain’t cheap.

Their Military Latte – green tea, white chocolate, espresso – is stunningly pretty but also eye-wateringly pricey. I’ve not tried it but if someone wants to buy me one, I’ll happily sample it 😉

In the meantime, watch this space for more caffeine recommendations coming this way…

  1. Maybe the “tourist only” thing is to avoid people to hung out in there for hours or something. Dunno, ot looks awesome anyway. Miss Japan so much…everything they do is so well-done and neat!

    1. Yeah but they have the plug sockets all set up so it’s kind of unavoidable. They should just make a “order every 2 hours” rule if needs be… But yeah, I agree at how neat and beautiful things are here. Think it really has become my home ^^
