Fodor's Expert Review Café Bibliotic HELLO!
Leafy banana trees visible from several blocks away mark this airy two-story town-house café that's especially popular at night with young people. Attached is an art gallery. Lunch options that include sandwiches, rice dishes, and curries change regularly. All go well with Moroccan chai or imaginative seasonal smoothies like one with strawberry, mint, and ginger. Among the desserts are mango and coconut cream and French toast with candied almonds. While waiting for your meal, you can browse the wall of books. The café is a 10- to 15-minute walk from either the Oike or Marutamachi subway stations.
