Time Out says
Kissaten are usually thought of as Japanese coffee shops, but Kissamako is no ordinary kissaten. A typical kissaten is like a moment frozen in time: picture vinyl seats, chrome-edged tables and lace-trimming everywhere, then add a layer of retro 1960s Japanese charm. Kissamako has been open since 1961, so it’s got the 60s charm in spades, but unlike a normal kissaten, this place is all about seafood. The house special is the ozoni, a bowl of aromatic clear broth with grilled mochi, poached chicken, clams, scallops and vegetables (¥1,600 or ¥1,800 with coffee). For a quick bite, grab the quintessential kissaten egg sandwich for ¥500.
Kissamako is tucked down an alley and up one set of stairs. You’ll know you've arrived once you spot the scarlet glass door. Inside, pull up a lace-covered chair in that unmistakable 60s shade of brown and listen to the sweet sounds of old soul and jazz records.
