Cafés are the best way to break up a day out in the city; they can even be destinations in themselves. That being said, if you're not looking to end up in a Starbucks, Doutor or yet another overcrowded chain, having done your research beforehand will make the difference between caffeine-deficient exasperation and sitting down with a relaxing cuppa.
Thankfully, the Shibuya-Harajuku-Omotesando area is littered with cafés, teahouses and coffee shops. And the best part is, you can easily walk from Shibuya Station to Omotesando without breaking a sweat, and fit in some cafe-hopping along the way. Here are our top picks for settling in with a well-deserved caffeine and dessert break in between shopping.
