Shizuoka city may be small, but we have a lot to offer in terms of cafes! Here are a few of our favourites, so get ready for some instagram worthy (and most importantly, really tasty!) places to try while you’re in Shizuoka
TW Brunch is a cafe/ restaurant about a minute’s walk from My Hotel Ryugu and is open from 7am-10pm. Their food is yummy and they use a lot of seasonal and local Shizuoka ingredients.
Hug Coffee (and sister craft beer stand Hug Hop) is a staple of the Shizuoka coffee scene- check out the main store for a relaxed atmosphere and ‘oishii curry vibes’. The staff are really friendly and the Ryogaecho store is always open until around 2am and buzzing with people.
Ethicus Coffee Roasters
Ethicus is a modern and stylish coffee shop near Shin Shizuoka station- the owners are super friendly and they are serious about coffee! We also recommend you try their sweets. Make sure to check their instagram to see when they are open- as it’s an independent shop and they often do events abroad.
Pearl Street Coffee
A small and very instagrammable coffee shop in central Shizuoka, pearl street is another one worth checking out.
Maruzen Tea Roastery
Maruzen Tea Roastery is a modern and minimalist cafe serving green tea and green tea ice cream. The perfect place to try shizuoka green tea, and they offer tea roasted to different degrees so you can try lightly roasted gyokuro tea up to deep roasted houjicha.
Daybreak is a cafe-bar in Tenma-cho really close to My Hotel Ryugu! Both their coffee and cocktails are great, and the atmosphere is really friendly and laid back. Make sure to check on their instagram for when they are open!
Blue books is stylish and has looads of seating, unlike some of the smaller cafes on this list. You can get coffee, alcohol, food or desserts here and it’s open until 10pm (last order is 9pm).
Kinzaburo sells Shizuoka tea and tea accessories, but they have a cafe space on the second floor where you can eat in and try their amazing selection of desserts! We recommend nabbing a table on the tatami section if you can.
Let us know if we’ve missed any of your favourite coffee shops in Shizuoka- there are many more cafes in town, so we might be back with a part two soon!
