Hi, everyone. I’m Ellie, and I work at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center.
Relaxing in a café with a cup of coffee in the early morning – days off like these are true happiness, aren’t they? The truth is, shops in Harajuku open a little late, so there aren’t many places that open in the early hours.
I’m going to recommend to you several cafés in Harajuku that open in the morning and serve breakfast. Be sure to stop by any of them before you begin your day’s shopping.
BURN SIDE ST CAFÉ
This café is a 6-minute walk from Harajuku Station and is filled with an American-style atmosphere. They don’t have a morning menu, but they’re open at 9:30 on weekdays and 8:30 on weekends and holidays, so you can still enjoy your morning with their regular menu. A popular item on the menu are their soufflé pancakes. They’re fluffy and just melt in your mouth. There’s a range of different types you can choose from, from pancakes with seasonal fruits to a tiramisu-style pancake. Why not try finding your favourite?
This Harajuku bakery & café is open from 8:30. They have Free Wi-Fi and electrical outlets, making it a great spot for getting some work done in the morning. The bakery serves lots of take-out food, and the breakfast menu has an assortment of toast, French toast and bread. You can get any of these as a set with a drink and salad. With its bright, Southern France style interior, this is a nice place to enjoy your morning.
Bills – Tokyo Plaza Omotesando Harajuku
Bills serve the world’s most famous breakfast. This branch can be found about 5-minutes’ walk from Harajuku Station on the seventh floor of Tokyo Plaza. Tokyo Plaza is closed in the morning times, but the elevator up to bills is functional. They have a big selection on their breakfast menu. I recommend the ricotta cheese pancake. The honeycomb butter smells sweet on the fluffy and moist pancake. Their specially-made scrambled egg is also exquisite and just melts on your tongue. The world’s best is right here, so be sure to experience it.
Bread, Espresso &
“Bread, Espresso &” is a café and bakery 5-minutes’ walk from Omotesando Station and 15-minutes’ walk from Harajuku Station. This place has immense popularity and has people lining up outside in the morning before it opens. Their popular menu item is the French toast they serve, which is only available on weekdays in the morning and at teatime. The French toast is thick, the outside is crunchy, and the inside is soft. It’s known to even sell out very quickly, so you’d best be up early if you want a bite.
Eco Farm Cafe 632
This café and bakery has earned a reputation for its menu which uses vegetables grown at the company’s own plantation. Seating 150 people, this place is spacious, and offers a calm and quiet environment that will have you forgetting the tumult of Harajuku. Their breakfast menu includes croissants, toast and pancakes, all of which you can have with fruit and salad, and depending on what you order, you can also get bacon, sausages and other things too. You can also choose a drink to make a set at ￥630, such as their own blend of coffee. Their breakfast menu is great because you get at a cheap price.
Revive Kitchen Three Aoyama
Enjoy healthy cold pressed juice made with carefully selected organic ingredients and nutrient-rich meals made with original recipes at this place. They also have things like gluten-free pancakes, so this one’s recommended for people looking to be healthy.
I hope you enjoyed this list. Start your wonderful day with a nice breakfast.
