Fuglen is a high-quality coffee bar in the charming neighborhood of Tomigaya, Tokyo. They offer outstanding coffee at daytime, amazing Cocktails at nightime, and a gorgeous selection of Norwegian vintage furniture cured by Norwegian Icons.
The shop opened in 2013 and is a sister shop of Fuglen Oslo (since February 1963).
During daytime, Fuglen offers specialty coffee beans from their roastery in Shibuya. Their beans are roasted in a light, Nordic style and sourced in small quantities from the best coffee growers around the world. Kenji Kojima, in charge of the coffee, explains that their roasting method allows the bean’s natural flavors to be enjoyed. Their skilled baristas serve fantastic Espresso drinks, always executed with superior quality.
During nighttime (at 7:00 pm precisely), Fuglen transforms into a sophisticated, speak-easy Cocktail Bar. Whether you’re into traditional Cocktails or wish to have a seasonal option, I assure you that every drink will be just perfect. They offer everything from Scandinavian bottled beer, a tasty wine and sake line up; as well as an innovative Cocktail menu created by Soran Nomura, always made with fresh ingredients and delicious syrups.
Their food menu includes traditional Norwegian small dishes as well as baked goods from the Bakeshop in Jiyugaoka to pair with coffee or even wine.
Fuglen’s interior transports you back to a Scandinavian house from the 50’s. The beautiful vintage Norwegian furniture creates an elegant yet cozy atmosphere, and the best part is that it is all for sale. Peppe Trulsen was in charge of the interior design.
Last year two Norwegian friends confessed that when they come to Fuglen they feel like visiting their grandma’s house, it helps cure their homesick.
When the weather is nice, customers can seat in the enwaga-like outside and enjoy their coffee or cocktail with a nice urban feel.
Fuglen is hands down my favorite spot in Tokyo. It is a great place to get work done in your laptop, read a book, have a meeting with a client or just be with friends at night.
I moved to Tomigaya area around two years ago and I have to say walking by Fuglen every day and receiving a warm smile from the staff makes me feel at home.
