Directions: Be A Good Neighbor Coffee Kiosk is located in the Tokyo Sky Tree Solamachi shopping and dining complex which is located directly beneath Tokyo Sky Tree.
While you can get to the Solamachi building from either Tokyo Sky Tree or Oshiage stations, the cafe is located almost directly above the Oshiage Station on the second floor making it a better idea to come from there rather than Tokyo Sky Tree Station which is on the other side of the building and can easily take you over ten minutes to walk from one end to the other.
While most of the eateries in the Solamachi complex are either grouped together or placed outside, this fresh little cafe can be found within the United Arrows store providing a nice break from all your shopping.
They really don’t have much in the way of food besides some banana bread and muffins but they do make up for it with a decent amount of drinks.
They serve hot and cold coffee, lattes, mochas and a really nice ice blended coffee which I went with and didn’t regret. It was a bit unusual to be served my banana bread wrapped in plastic wrap in a paper bag even though I specified that I was going to “eat in” but this is more of a casual “on the go” cafe instead of a full on cafe so it didn’t bother me that much. It does have “Kiosk” in it’s name afterall.
Having said that, there is a table provided as well as some window-side seating that offers a sunny view of the outside walking area which I find to be a great place for people watching and just chilling out while checking Twitter and listen to a podcast or two. There are also several seats directly outside though unfortunately no tables.
Be A Good Neighbor Coffee Kiosk (I do love that name) won’t feed a whole family but is a nice little known quiet oasis in one of Tokyo’s busiest shopping complexes. Remember where this is for when you need a break.
