Go Chicly Green at these 5 Organic Cafés
5. Momiki House (Harajuku)
The first café is just a 10-minute walk from Harajuku or Meiji-Jinguemae Station, and is none other than Mominoki House, a well-known spot with plentiful organic and vegetarian options. Definitely come here if you’re looking for more than just to pick up a latte—and even if you are, don’t be surprised if you find yourself ordering one of the delectable black bean salads!
4. Honey Mi Honey Tokyo (Meiji-jingumae)
Although Mominoki is bigger and has more food options, a quaint favorite is a little gem nestled in a backstreet just a four-minute walk from Meiji-Jingumae Station called Honey Mi Honey.
“A little gem” is an understatement. Up on the second floor of a boutique is the café bar with minimal but delicious food options (tuna melt, anyone?) where the staff seat you in an almost heavenly atmosphere that will make you want to take a nap by the sunlit curtains.
3. Salon de Nanadecor (Meiji-jingumae)
Next up is Salon de Nanadecor which, like Honey Mi Honey, is a café nestled in a boutique, this time specializing in organic cotton fashion. The café, which the shop calls a “tea salon,” centers mostly around tea and vegan dishes made with freshly baked bread (using natural yeast) like fruit tarts, veggie burgers and stews. It’s got a very modest chic vibe going on, and you definitely can’t leave without at least feeling the organic cotton!
2. Organic Table by Lapaz (Meiji-jingumae)
Organic Table by Lapaz is another café/restaurant that has vegetarian-friendly options, though this one also makes concessions to meat lovers, with its motto being, “more than organic.” This place is set apart by its vegetarian Japanese dishes and salad bar (not self-serve), all set in an artsy vibe with occasional indie music performances. Come here for all your hipster and vegetable-curry desires alike!
1. Daylesford Organic Café and Shop (Omotesando)
Daylesford Organic Café and Shop is a higher-end place to eat, but with an affordable and satiating beef dinner set that leaves no one wanting. The nice catch with Daylesford is that it has a party plan for you and all your organic-loving friends. Not enough? The shop also occasionally has deals on wine! And while all-natural places tend to go for a more rustic, nature-defined look, with its sleek, updated interior, Daylesford is a very modern place to eat organic.
