Looking for traditional cafe 2017/1/29 08:19
Hello everyone

I just discovered a video about this traditional cafe in tokyo called daibo:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Twp5pjKygmU

unfortunately it closed a couple of years ago. So I was wondering if anyone knows of a similar cafe in tokyo?

I liked the fact that the whole room and the machines at daibo are still the way they were many decades ago. And that he uses cloth filter to brew the coffee with a lot of devotion.
I know there are a lot of new, stylish, hip and overdesigned cafes all around japan where you can get filter coffee. So that's not exactly what I'm looking for.
I'd rather find an old gem like daibo where you can feel that everything has been the same for ages regardless of passing trends.

Thanks for any tips!

Thanks so much 'tokyo friend 48'! This is exactly what I was looking for!!

And thanks to you too 'hakata14'! The author of that article couldn't have expressed it better: 'Call it personal preference, but the minimalist chic favored by the third-wave brigade is starting to feel a bit oppressive to me. Therefs nothing at Tokyofs multiple Blue Bottle branches that makes me want to linger once Ifve finished my cup. Sat at the counter at Chatei Hatou, amid decor more redolent of a Tudor farmhouse, itfs almost impossible to leave.'

Not a problem. It was so random as I read the article probably 15 minutes before reading your question.
