cafe de Naniwaya

1-7-5 Asakusa, Taito-ku, Tokyo
TEL: 03-5828-8988
A one-man operation in the back streets of Asakusa, Naniwaya appears to have been around for ages. Actually, it opened in December 2006 and is presided over by a still-young but exacting coffee wizard. The master employs the drip method and a single cup of coffee takes five minutes or more to prepare (the beans are ground to order, the water’s temperature is taken, the first drips of water are laid gently, etc.). Sit at the counter to watch coffee science in action. In the mood for sweets? Naniwaya’s coffee jelly puts Jello-O to shame.

I like this place. It's got a great group of regulars who come after work.
