Located a short walk from both Jiyugaoka and Okusawa stations, Mellow Brown Coffee serves expertly brewed cups of java and their signature “waffle pancakes” that boast the best of both worlds: a crispy waffle skin with a soft, almost soufflé-like interior. A great spot to enjoy a slow weekend brunch, the coffee house also serves the ever-popular eggs Benedict, and plenty of variations of the waffle pancakes.
