In the heart of Azabujuban, you can find Shiorikuro, a minimalist Japanese black-bean sweet haven that pairs its delectable offerings with coffee or tea. This quaint establishment has carved its niche as a destination for those seeking a refined taste of Japanese sweets. The store is not very spacious and groups are not allowed to enter, but roll cakes and other sweets can be taken home. Drinks cannot be ordered as take-out, however. The roll cakes, offered in white and black variations, both showcase the use of black soybeans in their sweet creations. The “Salted Black Soybean Roll Cake” features a smoky black dough infused with bamboo charcoal and black cocoa, enveloping a generous layer of salted black soybean and an original cheese cream, enhanced with the refreshing note of red Japanese wine lees.


Located a six-minute walk from THE LIVELY TOKYO AZABUJUBAN, OSLO COFFEE is the perfect spot to visit for an early breakfast, since they open at 7:30 a.m. The café exudes an international vibe, providing an open and enjoyable ambiance. The Danish cheese pancakes are so delicious that they are well worth the 20-minute wait. Diverging from the typical pancake texture, these treats boast a delightful crispiness on the exterior and a soft, fluffy interior, perfectly complemented by the accompanying cheese cream. The coffee, abundant and flavorful, adds to the overall satisfaction, making the dining experience an entirely gratifying experience.

DUMBO Doughnuts and Coffee

For aficionados of airy, fluffy New York-style doughnuts, the newly opened shop DUMBO Doughnuts and Coffee in Azabujuban is a must-visit. Boasting around a dozen varieties of sweet carb delights daily, this spot caters to all tastes, from classic options like cinnamon sugar to vibrant creations like matcha cheese cream and the striking hot pink framboise. Each doughnut pairs perfectly with a cup of dark roast coffee sourced from Kyoto bean specialists, Arabica. Despite this, the doughnuts themselves stay true to the NYC style, being large yeast doughnuts fried to perfection. The doughnuts are uniformly glazed and adorned with various toppings, spanning traditional choices like glazed and cinnamon sugar to more exotic options such as Passionfruit, Matcha Cream Cheese, Yuzu White Chocolate, Mint and Lime. The iced coffee complements the doughnuts well.


Located a 5-minute walk from THE LIVELY TOKYO AZABUJUBAN, HISAYA KYOTO is a modern establishment encompassing the HISAYA LOUNGE cafe and a shop specializing in Japanese and Western confections using carefully selected chestnuts. Offering a unique blend of traditional and contemporary flavors, HISAYA KYOTO impresses with its dedication to the highest quality chestnuts, particularly showcased in the Mont Blanc dessert. The delectable Mont Blanc emphasizes the natural sweetness and delightful texture of the finest chestnuts. This chestnut haven originated from the vision of a Kyoto resident and chestnut aficionado who initiated a chestnut stand named “HISAYA” about 15 years ago near Kyoto’s Kiyomizu Temple. Focused on the “Kinka Chestnut” from Liaoning Province, China, and employing an additive-free, proprietary pressure-cooking method, HISAYA has grown into a beloved chain with eight stands in the Kanto region. The introduction of HISAYA CAFE, a Mont Blanc specialty cafe in Kyoto, paved the way for the Azabu-Juban branch, the first HISAYA store in the Tokyo metropolitan area. With only six seats, HISAYA CAFE in Kyoto aims to provide a luxurious and unhurried ambiance for indulging in the exquisite world of high-quality chestnut sweets.
