The weekend brunches at this casual Western-style eatery, tucked away on a side street halfway between Shibuya and Ebisu, have made it a popular stop on the Tokyo expat circuit for well over a decade now. Good Honest Grub lives up to its name, serving wholesome, home-style cooking, using vegetables grown at a private farm at the foot of Mt Fuji. Head there at lunchtime on weekdays for a choice of daily specials or staple dishes including vegetable lasagne and turkey sandwiches – then come back at the weekend for the main event. Good Honest Grub's brunch sessions offer some of the same dishes you'd get at lunch, as well as an excellent eggs benedict (with toppings ranging from smoked salmon to feta cheese) and a meat-heavy ‘Lumber Jack’ plate of sausages, bacon, ham and scrambled egg. If you've still got room after all that, try one of their fresh fruits shakes or a slice of carrot cake.
