A 6-minute walk from Shibuya Station, “SHIBUYA COFFEE” is easily accessible. It’s a pretty laid-back cafe with wooden chairs and glass tables.

With all the greenery thanks to the indoor plants in the cafe, SHIBUYA COFFEE gives off a relaxing vibe despite being located in a very busy neighborhood of Shibuya.

Ranging from ¥500 – ¥1000, the dishes are reasonably priced and very tasty.

I had their Loco Moco Cheese Hamburger Bowl that came with a salad and yogurt. Juicy and palatable their handmade burger was an explosion of flavors in my mouth. It was quite voluminous. At a glance, the salad looks average but the dressing is divine.

A friend of mine had their Chili dog and their soup of the day.

I’m definitely going back. When I do, I want to try their Tomato Risotto and their smoothies.

Emma Lounge, A Not-So-Secret Secret Cafe in Shibuya

LOCATION: Social Building, 1-14-9, Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan

Relaxing atmosphere + gentle music + great coffee + palatable dessert, these are the ingredients for a perfect afternoon of reading.

Just a 4-minute walk from Shibuya station, Emma Lounge is a relaxing cafe great for reading a book, chatting with friends, writing a blogpost (which is what I’m doing right now), playing chess, or spending “alone time” to unwind after a long day.

Despite its location at the heart of the bustling city (ward) of Shibuya, once you step into the magical portal of Emma Lounge with a classic interior and gentle music playing, you’re brought into a world where time seems to be moving at a pace of its own.

Affordable and delicious, prices for drinks range from ¥300~¥600, main dish at ¥900~¥1400, and desserts at ¥450~¥690.
