With jars of homemade liqueurs lining the counter, Citadel, which opened last April and is fast becoming another Daimyo hot spot, looks like a science lab at first glance, but its trademark is coffee cocktails. Owner Yoshimitsu Obara offers around 40 cocktails made with an original blend of light roasted coffee beans; the subtle flavor won’t overpower the other ingredients, even citrus. Try the rich espresso spumoni or a refreshing cold brew coffee cocktail. With summer in the air, we recommend the mint infused coffee mojito. If you get peckish, try the homemade sweets.
Menu (tax incl.): Coffee mojito ¥950, espresso spumoni ¥850, homemade ginger ale ¥650, homemade lemonade ¥600, cold brew lemonade ¥600, Citadel blend coffee ¥550, tiramisu ¥600, homemade cheesecake ¥600 *no table charge
