TOKYO | Sarutahiko Coffee are a Tokyo-based coffee roaster/cafe that have become a favourite with locals since opening their first store in Ebisu a few years back.
Located inside a bookstore and travel agent, HIS, on a quite side street, Sarutahiko’s Omotesandō cafe has a bright, airy feel, courtesy of whitewashed walls and large front windows which allow natural light to stream into the space. There’s a large communal table in the centre, along with a few tables and couches. For more seating you can take your coffee into the bookshop itself, which is just behind the cafe.
All kinds of coffee you could want are on offer here. A custom Synesso machine is used to pull espresso shots, and there’s a pour over counter for all your filter needs, hot and cold. There’s a large range of six single-origins and five blends on offer on most days, and all coffee is selected and roasted by Sarutahiko. Each coffee comes with a card with tasting and origin notes. I ordered a single origin cold drip which was fantastic.
There’s a small retail section where you can purchase coffee beans to take away, as well as coffee equipment like cups and filters.
