Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Reputed to be one of Nakameguro's top coffee spots, Cafe Facon appears to be angling for a more mature crowd. It's pocked with Parisian references, including a small library of Francophone books and a grotesque faux-naive painting of cherubs frolicking around the Eiffel Tower. More confusing still are the wooden ornaments that resemble nothing so much as dreamcatchers – but iffy decor aside, Facon clearly means business. The shop roasts its own beans, offering four blends and a selection of single-origin coffees, plus a few milky variations and a variety of teas. If you're feeling peckish, the best bet is to order a cake or sandwich set – the latter being substantial enough to satisfy the lunch crowd. We order a cup of Facon blend coffee – a little on the acidic side, though with a relatively sweet aftertaste – which outclasses the flabby omelette sandwich that we get to go with it.
