Teo Kafon is a new classic in Shinkyogoku where you can enjoy authentic matcha sweets and drinks
This café, Teo Kafon, opened in the Shinkyogoku Shopping Street just in 2016, and they offer matcha sweets and drinks. The concept of this café, which is easily recognized from its jazzy pink and orange sign, is the fusion of Japanese and Western cultures. The matcha sweets of the café are Japanese, but the atmosphere, look, and interior of the café are all trendy and cute! What is special about Teo Kafon is that their menu items can all be enjoyed together. Take for example their Teo Set, in which you get to stir matcha yourself. The owner of the café says that she wants all the people of the world to share the fun they have at the café with each other. How about enjoying matcha sweets and drinks at Teo Kafon, maybe as a break from shopping, or just to have a chat with your friends?
Matcha Sweets Plate
Matcha Sweets Plate / ¥700
The most popular menu item in Teo Kafon is this Matcha Sweets Plate. You have five different matcha sweets on a wooden plate. These mini-sweets are really cute! All of these sweets use matcha carefully chosen by Teo Kafon, and they all have a nice fragrance of matcha. I really want to recommend this plateful of matcha!
TEO Set / ¥500
The café takes a part of its name from this Teo Set, and with this set you can stir matcha yourself! All of the menu items in Teo Kafon have thorough explanations below them, so don’t worry even if it is your first time. You have the matcha with high-quality Japanese sweets.

You can have five kinds of matcha sweets at once; this is sure to satisfy even the most demanding matcha fans! I especially liked the matcha cream puff; the thick, rich matcha custard inside it is something I still dream of. You can also get to try like a mini-version of the tea ceremony here; stirring matcha. This place is everything a matcha fan could hope for in a café!
