Time Out says

Tucked into the ground floor of a small apartment block at a street corner, coffee shop WR has transformed the awkward space into an asset – something of a sleek, stylish bunker. The industrial-looking concrete walls and floor are combined with wooden tabletops and fresh seasonal flowers for a cool, welcoming vibe. Then there’s the coffee and craft beer, which are both excellent. 

The coffee menu (¥450-¥500) covers the essentials, from crisp and complex cold brew and long black to milky latte and flat white. The coffee here is reminiscent of the styles you get in Australia, which is not surprising considering the managers of WR used to live and work there. If you like the roasts, which come from Haneda-based Swim Roastery, you can purchase bags of the coffee beans here, too. (Just a quick primer: a flat white is espresso topped with steamed milk and microfoam; a long black is like an Americano but less diluted and with the espresso shot added after the hot water, not before.)  

There’s ample seating here, and that’s a good thing since the relaxed environment is perfect for lingering. You’ll find standing tables as well as bench seats inside and out. Oh, there’s also free wifi and electrical points if you feel like changing up your remote work scenery for the day. 

The selection of craft beer on tap (starting from ¥900) changes regularly, with a good mix of homegrown and imported brews.
