I had really enjoyed my daily Japanese breakfasts at my Shinjuku hotel and at the Kyoto ryokan, but when I didn't love the offering at my Asakusa accommodation, I went in search for an alternative for my last 2 mornings. What I found was February Cafe, with it's Melbourne standard lattes. I've not eaten plain white bread in a very... More

One of the few places in Tokyo that serves Melbourne-style coffee. Don't get me wrong, I like Japanese coffee, but for some, it may take a little getting-used-to. When we visited, we were served by a very lovely barista who spoke English. The shop is a little small with limited seating, but it was well spaced and cosy. For those... More

Lovely little cafe nestled in the side streets of Taito. It served the best cappuccino I've had! Wish I could have gone back a second time but we had no opportunity. Staff aren't fluent in English, and because of that we tried to order apple pastry but failed. (By the time we realized it wasn't coming, we had finished our... More

Goes to show there's nothing you can't find in Tokyo - after 3 mornings over very sorry Cappuccinos we found the February Café a delightful alternative. They have a proper coffee machine! And they are not afraid to use it. Coffee is lovely, and even comes with beautiful coffee art. Plus the marketing genius of having a dish called "eggslut"... More

A bit difficult to find cafe that opens before 10 am. but here it does. Value set for coffee and cheese toast for only 600 yen. And its taste was really nice.

A tiny little gem in the Asakusa area not far from the lovely temples. One outside table and some tiny tables and a coffee bar inside. You can order a coffee and toast combination in the morning which is a very cheap breakfast or just order a great coffee with a little yoghurt and granola bowl. The staff are really... More

What a nice little place to start your day. Staff was very friendly, coffee was supreme, and the total cost of our breakfast was under $15 usd.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
