Breakfast in Shibuya

Tokyo, a city known for its bustling city life and tons of commuters, is a surprisingly hard place to find breakfast. Most establishments only open around lunch and even the coffee shops don’t open until late morning. However, visitors don’t have to resort to a plastic-wrapped rice ball breakfast from the convenience store. Shibuya is filled with bakeries and cafes that will suit everyone from business people heading to work in the morning to partiers recovering from their all-night doings.

    Scandinavian Coffee at Fuglen

    Scandinavian Coffee at Fuglen

    Hailing from Norway, Fuglen is a cafe during the day and a bar at night. The vintage decorations and mid-century modern furniture create a cozy living room vibe for freelancers typing away at the teak wood counters. The coffee is third wave Scandinavian style, which means the roast is lighter than much of the average Japanese-style dark blend coffee. The cafe offers espresso drinks from lattes to cortados, as well as the standard drip coffee made from a choice of single origin beans. Food is also offered in the morning: yogurt and granola for the health-conscious and croissants, pies, and pastries for everyone else. On nice mornings, diners are welcome to enjoy their breakfast outside and watch the city as it slowly begins to wake up.

    Trendy Brunch at Path

    A little behind the times, the brunch trend has recently hit Tokyo, and it’s hit hard. The best chefs around the city are gearing up for the ever increasing queues in the morning and the competition means the quality is consistently improving. Path was opened by Taichi Hara and Yuichi Goto, both heavy hitters in the Japanese and international culinary scene, and creates an unpretentious atmosphere for diners looking for superior food without the attitude. The pastries are the recommended breakfast item, as Goto was trained as a patissier and worked in France’s highly acclaimed La Maison Troisgros before opening Path. For brunch, the Dutch pancake, topped with prosciutto, burrata, and maple syrup, is the most popular item. Path opens at 8AM but on weekends queues can begin before the opening time.
