Coffee time goes to the birds at Kotori Cafe, a quirky new shop in the heart of Omotesando that draws inspiration from the serenity of bird-watching. On the menu are cakes (¥800) and other bird-themed nibbles from noted pastry chefs, all served in birdcages. There’s also a selection of soothing herbal teas and Hawaiian coffee (¥800), each coming with a bird-shaped cookie. With another branch in Kichijoji, Kotori could be the remedy to a cuckoo day.
