Located in the quiet neighborhood of the same name just west of Ohori Park, Kuromon Coffee is an authentic roaster cafe situated in a refurbished 90-year old house. Owner Yosuke Yatsuda, who used to manage Forest Mark Espresso in Yakuin, opened the shop in June 2019. He named it after the neighborhood because he wanted to become the go-to shop for the locals. The specialty coffees are carefully roasted between a medium and dark roast. Enjoy a single origin or an easy-sipping blend. For a treat, try the espresso banana shake. Decaf options are also available.
Menu (tax incl.): Espresso ¥460, drip coffee ¥520, flat white ¥560, Gibraltar ¥560, cappuccino ¥520, espresso banana shake ¥620, buttered toast ¥310, waffle ¥510
