Nozy Coffee in Sangenjaya

Sangenjaya is an area nestled just in between the more vibrant and busy area of Shibuya, and the western neighborhoods of Tokyo. It has many popular shops and restaurants, but still has a quiet and relaxed vibe overall.

It is a great place for small and quaint bars, with a series of narrow winding streets running through the main area around the station, but also has a few cafe gems if you want to ease back and enjoy some urban sights and sounds.

This place grinds their own coffee, and has had fantastic reviews for both its blend and latte menu items. Not snobby, just Nozy!
