Gallery & Café Mikado

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
