Canvas Tokyo 「キャンバストウキョウ / 広尾」

I recently bumped into Canvas Tokyo, a new coffee shop corner in Hiroo. Canvas Tokyo might be small but it nests Mark Espresso a cute cafe stand, a healthy restaurant and much-loved Nico donuts, cool goodies and a rental art space on their 2F. Every Friday Canvas Tokyo opens up their space on the 2nd floor and holds an art event (check HERE if you’d like to become a member or you’re interested in renting the space) I’m not a member, but I enjoyed a good cup of coffee anyway in their 2F. I drank my coffee too quickly and forgot to take a pic of the lovely latte art. If you go there off-peak hours, you can ask the Barista to personalise your coffee with a design of your choice ♡ おしゃれなカフェ!   I’d like to thank Canvas Tokyo’s staff who kindly let me shoot their lovely cafe, ありがとう!     Canvas Tokyo: 5-19-6 Hiroo, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Opening Hours: Daily 11am-8pm, Fri espresso bar 6pm-10pm, Closest Station: Hiroo (Hibiya Line),  Official Website HERE, Follow HERE   All photos on this blog were snapped by me unless otherwise noted. …

Salon de The Rond 「サロン・ド・テ ロンド/ 国立新美術館のカフェ」

The National Art Center Tokyo, designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa (1934 – 2007)  is the largest exhibition space of any museum in Japan. The main hall of the museum has two gigantic inverted cones. On top of one sits “Brasserie Paul Bocuse Le Musee” (a 3-stars Michelin restaurant) and on the second one “Salon de The Rond“ Cafe, where I enjoyed some quiet time after seeing the Center’s current exhibition. ↓↓↓ This gigantic cone nests Salon de The Rond. Pretty cool, right? The Salon offers an assortment of delicious treats, including sandwiches and a variety of cakes, as well as tea, coffee, and a selection of wines. There’s a very relaxed atmosphere in the cafe and of course an excellent view! NACT does not have its own permanent collection but instead holds special exhibitions only.  Entry to the National Art Center is free so you can wander around this amazing building and enjoy a cup of tea or a meal and then visit their excellent museum shop.  You can also enjoy for free their relaxation area with designer chairs on the basement level and the NACT’s ‘Art Library’ on the …

Campagne et Ferme 「カンパーニュ エ フェルム /恵比寿 」

Some time ago, I met in Ebisu with two Tokyo-based fellow bloggers Alyssa from AlyssaandCarla  and Lori from The Spendy Pencil. Lori invited us to Campagne et Ferme, a lovely French cafe and dining. The atmosphere inside Campagne et Ferme will remind you of a French countryside home. They serve lunch, cafe and dinner and every meal is prepared with seasonal vegetables. There’s also a little market inside the Cafe, with some French wines & treats and a lovely selection of mugs. So cozy inside! Perfect to enjoy a cup of coffee and catch up with friends.     I’d like to thank Campagne et Ferme’s staff who kindly let me shoot their lovely cafe, りがとうございます and to my dear friend Lori for taking me to this lovely cafe.   How to get there?

Tea House Zen Kashoin「然花抄院 / 渋谷ヒカリエ」

If you are in the mood for a nice cup of tea and a traditional Japanese sweet, I recommend you head to Zen Kashoin, a quiet and lovely Japanese tea house from Kyoto located in Shibuya. The Tea house is quiet and let’s you enjoy a tea experience within a modern context but away from the hustle and bustle of the Shibuya area. Zen Kashoin offers a nice selection of Japanese teas and Western coffees and teas.  If you want to try the Japanese sweets, I recommend you choose the tea sets that come with a drink (Green tea, Tea or Coffee) and a variety of cakes and biscuits of your choice for an affordable price. I had the signature cake “Zen Castella” & tea and it was delicious.  The eggs used for this cake come from chickens that have been fed premium black beans from Kyoto. It had this slightly sticky layer in the middle… yum! These are Muromachi Boru, basically Zen Castella baked for a bit longer, so they dry and become crunchy like a meringue cookie.  The little sticks are “Karinto” with …
