Siphon coffee is the speciality at this Sangenjaya cafe, which looks like the kind of space you'd expect to find attached to a gallery or arthouse cinema, complete with exposed cement ceilings and walls and a well chosen library of art and design books. There are two blend coffees ('fruit' or 'chocolate', both ¥500 and aptly titled) and a rotating selection of single-origin ones (¥600), with beans roasted – and sold – at a separate site known simply as the Laboratory. The food menu includes toasted sandwiches and chiffon cake. Bonus points for service that manages to be attentive without ever feeling overbearing.
