If you know me, you probably know two things about me: I like coffee and I like coding.
So, I guess it is not strange that when I am out of San Francisco I try to find good coffee shops where I can spend some time and code. This year, I have traveled a bit, and while I was out I collected a list of the coffee shops that I enjoyed the most.
This first post is about coding from great coffee places in Tokyo, Japan. Here we go!
Café Kitsuné Tokyo
Beautiful coffee shop near Omotesando Station, the coffee is great. But not just that, the place is carefully designed and the tables are nice. Go there with your laptop or tablet and enjoy and afternoon of coding with good coffee. Thanks @Llorens and @Joan for the recommendation.

This place is a 10 minutes walk from Shibuya station. Inside this shop it felt like I was back in San Francisco. The place is designed to host people that want to work with their laptops, great tables, good internet connection, even power supply! And, the most important part, the coffee and the pastry are excellent.

These is also some smaller coffee places, not so coding friendly, but with great coffee!
Cream of the Crop
A 5 minutes walk from Shibuya Station you will find this small, very small, coffee place with great coffee.

And finally, probably not the best place to work since there are no tables at all. However, the shop is beautiful and carefully designed. If you go to Tokyo and you like coffee, do me (and yourself) a favor and go get a cup of coffee there. Thanks for the recommendation @Gerard.
