Who knew Iriya had a place like this? Daisuke Matsushita's Davide is a very decent take on an Italian streetside café, sidestepping drip coffee entirely (simply because it takes too long to brew) and offering excellent espressos and lattes instead. Down yours at the counter or just get one to go – the man in charge of the machine doesn't care either way. Still, you just might find yourself lingering, as the mainly turquoise-coloured interior is rather fun to look at. The ground floor also has a bright orange wall and exudes a busy atmosphere, while the smaller space upstairs is more relaxing. There's also a basement, which is opened for the occasional pop-up shop, exhibition or other event.
