A fantastic cafe for working near Takadanobaba station. The 2nd floor is best for working, so when you arrive, let the staff know that you'd like a seat on the 2nd floor, and they'll give you a seat number and a QR code for ordering.
Drinks are quiet basic, and a little pricey for what you get, but at least the space is very comfortable, great for a work or study session.
Two restrooms available, one on 1F and one on 3F.
This cafe is on a small quiet street near Shin-Okubo station. It's calm, quiet and cozy, even on a Sunday. I believe the owner might be from Taiwan, and they serve Taiwanese Oolong tea, which was very nice. There's good WiFi and power outlets. They don't accept cards though, so be sure to have cash or PayPay.
One of my favorite spots near Yoyogi station for a quick work session. The interior is small but they have some seats that allow you to use your laptop for up to 90 minutes, which is fair. The coffee is good, and the cakes are really good. Unfortunately no tea available.
A large and spacious cafe near Harajuku station. Surprisingly not very crowded considering the area, but I guess the vibe is a bit "corporate-y" so it's probably not the most popular cafe for tourists. In any case, it's a great spot to sit and get some done. Fast wifi, and especially the counter seats are great if you need power.
A small and cozy coffee shop near Ginza station. There are counter style seats and some small tables (really only suitable for 1 person per table). The counter seats have power. Menu selection is quite small. There's coffee, but no regular caffine tea (only herbal or tea latte). The cookies are really good!
The cafe gives off a modern, clean, and possibly upscale vibe. The design is sleek with wood elements and exposed ceiling infrastructure, suggesting an industrial-chic aesthetic. The lighting is warm and inviting.
A great work spot not too far from Tokyo Station. There are two areas, a large room by the entrance, and another smaller room in the back. In the afternoon/evening the cafe was super quiet and great for working.
My only complaint would be that the chairs in the back room are not particularly comfortable for back support. I ended up using my backpack as an extra back support. Other than that, it's a great spot, and drink prices were surprisingly good as well.
Definitely not the fanciest or coziest cafe, but if you're looking for a spot to work from in Shinjuku (even on a weekend) then this seems to be a pretty reliable place. There's very fast wifi and lots of power outlets. The large work table and the counter seats along the windows are nice to sit at.
A fairly small Blue Bottle coffee shop, but there's quite a lot of seating inside. There are some high tables when you first come in, and there's another large room with regular tables in the back. There's not much sound isolation, so it got very loud when it was busy with people talking. So this is probably best for early mornings or late evenings.
One of my favorite cozy coffee shops in Shimokitazawa. It's small, with only a couple of tables, and counter seats, so it's not really the type of place you'd hang out and work for too long. But if you're in the area and you want a nice drink and some desserts then this is a great spot. There's wifi and power outlets as well.
