Beloved Shibuya mainstay Coffeehouse Nishiya has moved to its new home in Asakusa with an updated name, but still serves up the same menu of Italian-inspired café drinks. Unlike its previous sit down space, the shop operates more as a standing coffee bar where you can stop by for a quick pick-me-up. Don't worry if you can't get a spot inside – just walk up to the front window and a cup of joe to go.
Behind the counter you'll find the jovial owner and barista Kyohei Nishitani, who has quite the coffee repertoire thanks to his experience at worldwide barista competitions. Ask him for a recommendation or go for one of the classic drinks like the cocoa dusted cappuccino, espresso con panna or espresso shakerato.
While the café lacks a food menu, some of the drinks on the menu double as a dessert, like the espresso banana shake or the simple affogato. Trying to cut down on caffeine? There are drinks for you too, including an indulgent hot chocolate (ask for the cioccolata) and a thick strawberry shake.
