Click here to eToranomon Hills is an upmarket high rise building in Minato ward that houses a hotel, apartments, offices and four floors of restaurants and shops. See our Map for the exact location.
On the second floor of this stylish tower you will find a coffee lovers' paradise, a coffee shop with the plain and simple name, Toranomon Koffee.dit.
Quite simply, Toranomon Koffee serves the best coffee I have ever had. Ask your barista for recommendations if you are unsure about what to order. I had the cafe mocha and my partner had the cappuccino.
Be warned, once you have tasted these delicious drinks it's hard to go back to the cheap convenience store coffee!
The coffee is a little on the pricey side, but it is definitely worth it. Even people who don't drink coffee will be converted by the smooth taste!
The cappuccino goes for 430 yen for the regular size, or 450 yen for the large size. The cafe mocha only comes in one size (which is pretty large) and goes for 560 yen.
Just next to Toranomon Koffee is a conveniently placed outdoor terrace area with chairs and tables where you can relax with your cup of joe. If you'd like some reading material to go with your coffee, visit the book store on the third floor before heading to the coffee shop.
Toranomon Hills is also a great place for families. There is a large outdoor garden, with a play area and sculptures on the lawns.
If you are looking for somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, or if you are looking for a sophisticated place to spend a lazy afternoon, Toranomon Hills is for you.
The art displayed throughout the building makes window shopping, or even just strolling around the floors, feel like a trip to an art museum. For more information about the art on display, see the Toranomon Hills official website.
Why not treat yourself and visit Toranomon Koffee the next time you are in Tokyo? If you are really looking to splurge, you could even consider staying in the hotel.
