  • The salmon in the grilled salmon bento was maybe the best salmon I've ever had. Unfortunately the rest of the bento was so so!
  • The hoji cha latte is oh so good
  • Tried the Shabu Pork Bento the other day. Quality stuff, definitely down to try all the other stuff soon.
  • A hipster friendly Japanese cafe and restaurant. Food is delicious and cheap. People bring books or laptops to study. There isn't a lot of spots to sit. Service is quick. Try the salmon bento. Trendy.
  • Great coffee, great bentos, and great vinyl music in the background. Coffee is microroasted and is really good. Get a pound if you can.
  • I dont know if I like their meatballs or their salmon more. But Ive never had a bad meal here.
  • Hoji latte, all the desserts are
  • Amazing expreso
  • Big fan of the food after hours but I wish the sushi was slightly cheaper and most importantly that they would invest in proper table ware instead of using single use plastics
  • A nice place famous for meatballs. The spot is pretty basic, but roof deck is worth checking out.
  • great food!
  • Best drip coffee for miles. Love the onigiri especially the one with the flaked salmon!
  • The hot yuzu tea is wonderful - not too sweet and not bitter from the yuzu. Just right!
  • Japanese cafe - service can be weirdly slow but the food is uniquely heartly/healthy/light, the ambiance is great (beautiful rooftop in the summer) and it has a great vibe
  • The legendary Japanese perfection, reflected in nagiri and hoji latte
  • great cold brew
  • Theres a second floor thats kind of hidden so make sure to check it out! A very low key coffee spot thats never loud or annoying
  • Hoji lattes are thumbs up. The onigiri is a bit rice heavy but comes warm so its tasty. Love the salmon bento and they have vegan options!
  • The Japanese slow drip cold brew is the best cold brew you will ever taste. Tasty (warm, fresh) onigiri, too.
  • Matcha latte
