Delicious Siphon-brewed Coffee and Great Music in Asagaya
[updated August 2022]

What do coffee and penguins have in common? One might think not that much… but on the north side of Asagaya, these two come together to offer a wonderful coffee experience catering to all of your senses. Run by a former radio director/sushi chef, Penguin Café is a simple yet stylish location where siphon-brewed coffee is the star of the show. The delicious coffee is accompanied by equally tasty sweets like dorayaki (red bean pancakes) and cheesecakes, while the music of Penguin Café Orchestra fills the space to create a relaxed atmosphere. Tea lovers are also welcomed as Penguin also offers a good variety of loose-leaf organic teas. The free wi-fi is the cherry on top.
