|Installation at A to Z Cafe, Omotesando|
My favourite cafe in Tokyo is A to Z Cafe in Omotesando. I'm not a person who raves about a cafe based on their decor. To me, the main criteria for a good cafe is good coffee. That's what they are about, after all.
However, A to Z Cafe has a freaking amazing decor. Featuring the work of Japanese artist, Yoshimoto Nara, A to Z makes you happy just being there. Not only are his drawings displayed around the cafe but there is a reconstruction of an artist's workshop in the middle of the cafe. I love the way you feel like you are getting a sneak peek into Nara-san's life with details down to the coffee cup on the desk and the half-finished drawings.
But say you hate art, that's okay too because the views of the city are also magical.
Now, the most important thing - the coffee. It's good. Not cheap but you get a proper coffee and a proper coffee in Toyko is a joy to find.
I've only been there for lunch. The dinner menu seems to feature mainly Western or Westernised food but the lunch set menu is a Japanese meal. They have two choices - fish or meat and it comes with all the extras including sashimi and the best rice I've ever tasted.
If you are ever in Tokyo, definitely give it a try.
