Cafe Noble


Cafe Noble is a great little cafe in Koenji (my new favorite stop on the Inokashira line). After asking the barista like 15 different questions about the menu I decided on this unusual iced coffee with soy milk drink…


Part one: iced coffee – literally frozen coffee!


Part two: soy milk. They gave me a small pot of it and I just poured it on the ice. The ice melted a little and the coffee flavor came out and …


Mmmm… delicious and refreshing. I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this before. Its such a simple and creative way to serve a cold drink. I’ll have to remember this one for when I start my own cafe someday..

By the way: my friend Johnny Le is debuting a short film at the Palm Springs International Film Festival next Saturday. If you’re in the area check it out. It’s called LICK and all I can say is that its a pretty intriguing plot line… : )

  2. That’s the biggest drink I have ever seen in Japan. It looks SOOO yummy… kind of looks like coco puff cereal with milk :)

    • It was pretty good! I don’t think this is the kind of thing that would really wake me up if I needed a caffeine fix (but I’m pretty addicted so..), but there was a nice strong coffee flavor coming through the milk. : )
      thanks as always for the comments
