Gallery & Café Mikado
Time Out says
Featuring modern masterpieces from Japan’s most renowned pottery regions – Arita, Kyoto and Ishikawa (aka Kutani) – plus vintage wares collected by the owner on her travels across the country, Gallery & Café Mikado is great for making new artistic discoveries over a cup of hot tea or coffee. While the vintage section was only added about a year ago, it’s already rather impressive – stacked with rarities and refilled as soon as space opens up. And there can be no doubting the craftsmanship: Mikado is frequented by the proprietors of Michelin- starred restaurants, who visit the shop to pick out new tableware for their discerning customers. Get a few plates here and you’ll find that even supermarket sashimi morphs into a top-grade delicacy on these wares – visually, at least.
