The 3rd Café, Toranomon Hills

Of all the restaurants and shops on the first few floors of the recently opened Toranomon Hills complex, The 3rd Café stands out. It's a café, book store, lounge and convenience store all rolled into one. Textured wood, black metal. The selection of products is not too bad either, they have bottles of Moët and rows of ubiquitous cans of coffee drinks sharing shelf space. If you need wine, cheese and crackers they got you covered, too. Stationeries? Travel accessories? Tiny kits that will turn your wine cork into a robot? Yep.

In the evenings, there's a DJ playing. You sit down for a while, do some work with your laptop hooked up, get a drink and something to eat, join some friends. Love these types of mashup places.

Getting There

Toranomon Hills is somewhat off, but it's an easy walk from the Toranomon subway station. Just head for exit no. 1, make a right onto the next main street and you'll have Toranomon Hills on your right in a few blocks.
