There are plenty of great places to go for a bite to eat in Shibuya. Of course you can head to the giant central crossing and find a bunch of restaurants and cafes in a one block radius, but maybe you are in the mood for something that is a little bit out of the way, a place where you can lean back, have a nice glass of wine, and soak in the atmosphere of a quiet street as you dine or munch on a little mid day snack. The perfect balance of good food and a great atmosphere, located just outside of the hustle and bustle of Shibuya’s center, can be found at Scotchbank. This little cafe and restaurant combo is the perfect place to find a little peace and quiet while enjoying a good meal after a day of exploring the fashion metropolis of Shibuya.
The fare at Scotchbank airs on the side of French bistro meets Japanese cafe.
