Hocus Pocus / Little Nap Coffee Stand is a minimalist Donuts & Coffee shop that was conveniently located in front of the conference I attended in Tokyo. It’s the first time I visited this area of Tokyo which is a short distance from National Diet and the Imperial Palace.
Exploring Tokyo on a bicycle proved to be a great way to discover places I would probably never get to see otherwise. After grabbing lunch in from of the main gate of Yasakuni shrine, I headed back toward my hotel in Akasaka and stopped at Jupiters Coffee Roasters ジュピターズ コーヒー ロースターズ.
I read about Dispatch Coffee in the coffee press . I knew I had to visit Dispatch coffee as soon as I arrived in Montreal. I visited the main coffee shop and roastery located on St-Zotique West street. The area is mostly commercial and feels a bit like it’s the middle of nowhere, but it’s worth the visit.
Caffe San Simeon was my surprise coffee discovery. I have walked in front of it for many years and never noticed it. I guess that Caffe Italia was my unique destination in Little Italy and never gave two shits about other places.
I stumbled on Myriade on my first day in Montreal and a gem of coffee shop like this could easily be over seen considering the fact that it’s hidden in the basement of a clothing store on Ste-Catherine street.
I’m not familiar with Ottawa, I’ve been there only a few times, but I trusted a friend who was born and raised in the city when she suggested Origin Coffee which is located in the popular Byward Market area.
Fukuoka remains one of my favorite city in Japan and like everywhere, the coffee scene is blooming. During this very short stay, I decided to visit Tokado coffee. Too many coffee shops, not enough time.
Kaikado has been selling hand crafted chazutsu or Japanese tea caddies since 1875 . In plain English, a tea caddy is pretty much a can, but the craftmanship at Kaikado is pretty amazing and this is not your average tea or coffee can. Kaidado caddies are made in Kyoto.
