Best Breakfast Spots in Tokyo
Surprisingly or not, one of the things that is most difficult for the Tokyo expats, newbies or those whole live here for decades, is a lack of Western style breakfasts. Japanese people often kick off their day with a bowl of rice, fish, and miso soup. For those who come from Europe or America, this kind of breakfast has nothing to do with what they are used to. Luckily in the past few years, the situation in Tokyo has started to change. Now you can find more and more places offering a breakfast which includes bread, eggs, oatmeal, etc. Here are our recommendations for the best breakfast spots in Tokyo.
Brasserie Viron Shibuya
Viron in Shibuya has probably one of the most popular breakfast offers in all of Tokyo. The place has been serving this breakfast for years now and it is still very popular especially on the weekends. By ordering their morning set, you will be able to enjoy some of their bread and pastries. You will be also served several jams and honey, and of course you can take as mush as you want of them. Hot and cold drinks are offered to complement your meal. All this makes it almost a royalty-worthy breakfast.
Bills is a very popular cafe with a several brunches around the city. One of them is in Ginza. Here you will find traditional Aussie breakfasts, such as scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, roasted tomatoes,
fennel sausages, and mushrooms. For those who crave something a little bit sweeter in the morning, they also offer grain porridges with fruits and fruit bowls.
Sawamura is a popular bakery and restaurant. At their Shinjuku brunch you can have a breakfast starting from 7 AM. Treat yourself for bacon with eggs or for a heart-fully french toast.
The place is already quite popular but this list won’t be complete without it. Jade5 is a small and cozy cafe located in Hiroo. Their breakfast option include pancakes or French toast and are served throughout the day.
World Breakfast Allday
We mentioned them in our other posts. This cafe is famous for serving a traditional breakfast from different countries around the globe. Additionally to the stable American, English, and Taiwanese breakfasts, every two months or so, they serve a meal from a new country. It is a nice experience and never gets boring.
Crisscross is a popular cafe in Aoyama. Here you will find many good options regardless what time you visit, but their breakfast is especially remarkable. We recommend to get the avocado salmon toast with a potato salad or their signature buttermilk pancakes with sunny side up.
A new place which was open only a year ago and it is located inside Kimpton hotel in Shinjuku. The bruch menu is served everyday until 3 PM. It includes 2 main dishes, a selection of coffee and tea, and a bucket of freshly baked bread and croissants from Pierre Herme. You can also ask for the bread refills. Not a bad deal!
