Kawaii Monster Café, Harajuku

The Kawaii Monster Cafe is the result of a collaboration between artistic director Sebastian Masuda, a pioneer of Japanese kawaii culture and Diamond Dining.

The Café’s theme is “The new Tokyo that nobody has ever seen” (mada Daremo mitakotononai atarashii Tokyo) and actually with its 193 seats, the coffee announces the color being the biggest in Tokyo.

Spread out over 4 different zones : MUSHROOM DISCO,  MILK STAND, BAR EXPERIMENT  & MEL-TEA ROOM, the Kawaii Monster is not original in its look but also with its unbelievable array  of food and drink.

An experience not to miss on your next trip to Tokyo.





Hipster Hangout : Cereal Killer Café, Shoreditch London

Opened just recently by identical twins from Belfast, Alan and Gary Keery, the Cereal Killer Café sells over 120 different types of cereal from around the world.  “If we can source it, we will sell it”. They offer British, American and global cereals all at £2.50 for a small bowl with a choice of milks and toppings such as banana or marshmallows. The journalist from TimeOut asked for the most obscure cereal they have: an Oreo cereal from South Korea – “very hard to source”.  A must-see !

Spiler Shanghai – when Budapest meets Shanghai….

For the decor of the bistro he has mixed the atmosphere of Budapest’s ruin pubs, old industrial buildings that have been retrofitted with new furnitures and fixtures, with the aesthetic of NY’s Chinatown.
