Where did Blue Bottle Come From: #1 Coffee in Tokyo: Cafe HaTou in Shibuya 

Today, Eat In Tokyo takes to coffee. The first place may in fact be the best place.  The idea of Blue Bottle Coffee started after a visit to this store. Located close to Hikarie in Shibuya, it has a classic atmosphere and great coffee. They also serve cakes that melt in your mouth.  The decor and cups are of antiques and beautiful porcelain. When ordering make sure you ask for old beans. I highly recommend the Coffee Chocolate and the ‘Raw’ Cheesecake.

Chatei Hatou Coffee Shop

Higasiguti Futaba Bldg. 1F, 1-15-19 Shibuya, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

住所 東京都渋谷区渋谷1-15-19

Tel: 03-3400-9088

Nearest Station: Shibuya

Exit 13a from Shibuya station is an elevator to the sidewalk. Facing that elevator from the street, find the sidestreet to your right and go up that hill about 30 meters to find Chatei Hatou on the left looking like a little house.

Chatei Hatou also serves sandwiches, prepared with almost as much care as the coffee. Besides the pour-over variety, they also offer cafe au lait, cappuccino, and chocolate coffee, and a variety of teas, all of which can be iced.
