Tokyo never sleeps, and with an ample enough supply of delicious, fresh coffee, you needn't either!

Thankfully, Tokyo is home to some great coffee shops. We're not suggesting you skip a good night's sleep, but if you're looking for a quick caffeinated pick-me-up, we've got just the right places.

Open early 'til late in many cases, whether you're a night owl "drinking in" the Tokyo nightlife, or an early riser looking for your morning coffee kick, we've got you covered.

Here are ten must-try spots for coffee lovers visiting Tokyo. With a variety of different vibes and styles, there's something for everyone on this list... just so long as they love coffee!


1-16-11 Tomigaya, Shibuya 151-0063, Tokyo Prefecture


Open as late—or as early—as 2 am, Fuglen originated in Oslo, Norway, in 1963, opening its Tokyo location in 2012, almost five decades later. Serving good, strong coffee, and even stronger cocktails, Fuglen is a perfect blend of coffee shop and cocktail bar, wrapped up in chic Nordic-inspired surroundings. Effortlessly cool coffee (or ginger daiquiris), day or night.

Perfect for: Coffee—or cocktails—with friends, whether morning, noon, or night.


The Roastery by Nozy Coffee

5-17-13 Jingumae, Shibuya 150-0001, Tokyo Prefecture


Less than ten minutes from Harajuku Station, The Roastery by Nozy Coffee's ambient lighting, exposed brickwork and industrial edge give it a decidedly New York vibe, amplified by the inclusion of cronuts on the menu. Delicious coffee, pastries, and ice cream should satisfy sugar and coffee lovers alike. For something more substantial, and a choice of craft beers, head upstairs to their American-style BBQ restaurant, Smokehouse.

Perfect for: NY-style coffee and cronuts (or a steak and a craft beer).


Blue Bottle

1-4-8 Hirano, Koto 135-0023, Tokyo Prefecture


Enjoying typical coffee shop hours, Blue Bottle's suburban 7,000-square-foot roastery, pastry kitchen, and coffee bar cater perfectly to a wide range of coffee loving clients. This includes locals, commuters and tourists alike, serving delicious fresh coffee from 8 am through 7 pm daily. Famed for their coffee shops up and down America's east and west coasts, Blue Bottle enjoys a familiar but fresh feel, with a further six locations dotted around Tokyo. Keep your eyes peeled!

Perfect for: Authentic coffee company experience away from more central Tokyo locations.


Café Kitsuné

3-17-1 Minamiaoyama, Minato 107-0062, Tokyo Prefecture

Serving quality coffee in calm and luxurious surroundings, Café Kitsuné is part of the Maison Kitsuné brand. The French record company and fashion label's coffee shop brings a cool European vibe to Tokyo, while
simultaneously maintaining a distinctly Japanese feel. Praised for its straight-to-the-point approach to both coffee and service, it's a great place to grab a drink, whether alone or with friends, away from much of the
hustle and bustle of Tokyo. 

Perfect for: No-fuss coffee in surroundings straight from a luxury lifestyle magazine.


Onibus Coffee

2-14-1 Kamimeguro, Meguro 153-0051, Tokyo Prefecture

Opening straight onto the street, this cute coffee kiosk is universally adored by local coffee lovers. With an open air serving area and a tiny additional upstairs seating area, Onibus offers a truly Japanese coffee
experience without the frills of other American, Parisian or Scandinavian inspired coffee shops. The menu is straightforward—extending solely to espresso, latte, Americano, or filter coffee—but the standard
is second to none.

Perfect for: A delicious, high-quality, but quick coffee on the go.

Café de l'Ambre

8-10-15 Ginza, SBM Bldg, Chuo 104-0061, Tokyo Prefecture


In business for 70 years, Café de l'Ambre provides a proper Japanese coffee experience despite the French name. The place is entirely authentic, and the coffee list is extensive, but an English-language menu
makes it as accessible to tourists and travelers as it is to locals, by whom it's much loved. A not-to-be-missed coffee spot for true coffee fans visiting Tokyo, and a refreshing alternative to big brand-owned locations in the city. 

Perfect for: A truly authentic Japanese coffee experience.


Koffee Mameya

4-15-3 Jingumae, Shibuya 150-0001, Tokyo Prefecture


Previously Omotesando Koffee, Koffee Mameya rises from its predecessor's coffee grounds as a tricky-to-find but worthwhile-to-visit coffee shop for true aficionados. With standing room only, you're welcome to hang
around, but it's more of a take-out situation aimed at both locals and visitors exploring the area.

Perfect for: Proper coffee lovers looking to grab their caffeine fix and go.


3-5-2 Jingumae, Shibuya 150-0001, Tokyo Prefecture


Achingly cool, Lattest is a classic hipster-style coffee shop and isn't shy about it. With concrete counter tops, exposed brickwork and drinks served in glass jars, don't let the vibe suggest the coffee here is anything but excellent. The drinks list is as extensive as it is delicious, plus free wireless internet and ample power sockets to charge your devices are a welcome bonus!

Perfect for: Those wanting the classic hipster coffee shop vibe (and somewhere to charge their phone).

4/4 Seasons Coffee

2-7-7 Shinjuku, Shinjuku 160-0022, Tokyo Prefecture


4/4 Seasons, pronounced as "All Seasons," offers a delicious no-frills coffee experience, with beans freshly roasted on site. Something of a hybrid between ultra-cool coffee shops and convenient on-street kiosks, 4/4 Seasons provides a refreshing and uniquely Japanese experience for coffee lovers visiting the Shinjuku area.

Perfect for: Something a little different, where you'll see coffee beans roasted on site.
