Ah, autumn. The oppressive heat of summer time has finally lifted and the lengthy lazy days of fall are upon us. A single of my former students as soon as said in praise of the season, “sunny days continue very easily.” I feel I get his drift – the mild days of this season stretch out and let us ease our way into the bitter winter. It is a fantastic season to sip wine on a terrace, putter on a patio, veg out on a veranda. So throw on a light sweater, grab a book or your laptop, bring your dog, and prepare to get some vitamin D.

Segafredo (Mita/Tamachi location)

Segafredo is properly identified for becoming 1 of the very best coffee chains when it comes to receiving a decent espresso. At the Mita Bellju Building location, they place tables out on the plaza under the shadow of the skyscrapers around, and sell glasses of Moët for only 500 yen a pop. Of course, their espresso is thick and smooth with a good crema, and they have tasty things like panini as well.

La Boheme (Shirokanedai location)

La Boheme has a reputation for getting a place to get low cost, great value Italian food. At the Shirokanedai place, you can whilst away the night on a stunning leafy terrace with inexpensive drinks almost till dawn – they’re open until 3 a.m. and glasses of home wine start at only 350 yen. A glass of Heartland beer goes for 490.


Paul (Yotsuya place)

Paul, the French bakery chain that tends to make outta this planet sesame flutes, typically only has a take-away storefront, or at most a few chairs exactly where you can sip your café creme. But at the Yotsuya location, Paul boasts a complete service restaurant café with a lovely outside seating location. Wine and beers start off about 500 yen, and if you order food, it comes with a bottomless bread basket.

El Caliente (Shinagawa)

Like it hot? Relative newcomer El Caliente serves up Nuevo Mexican cuisine on the 4th floor of the Atre Creating in Shinagawa. Boasting a spacious open terrace, this location offers beer, sangria, and a generous handful of liquors and cocktails for 500 yen. And of course, what goes greater with beer than tacos? By the way, this spot serves not only the regular Corona, but they also have Sol, Tecate, and Modelo in the bottle all for a single of those shiny gold fivespot coins.

Shibaura Canal Cafe

Fancy a stroll or a cycle along the canal in Shibaura? This location is nothing at all fancy, but it is low cost as chips and has a sweet canal and city view to boot. This might be the low priced winner with cocktails and beers beginning at only 390 yen. The kitchen here is a meals truck, and the cuisine can ideal be described as “beer snacks.”
