bills – Omotesando Harajuku
“bills” needs no introduction – they serve the world’s best breakfast. The lines to get in get particularly busy in the afternoon, but you won’t have to wait long if you go in the morning. You can find it on the seventh floor of Tokkyu Plaza at Harajuku crossing. Their famous pancakes are definitely delicious, but they have a hefty selection to choose from on the food menu. And the terrace seats feel great when it’s sunny!

Walk down the street between Murasaki Sports and New Balance near the MOSHI MOSHI BOX and make a right at the Family Mart convenience store. There, you’ll find Bio Ojiyan Cafe on your right.
