    Dynamite espresso crafted with love. Seating is minimal at the café. Don't expect to use your laptop here: this spot is for serious coffee appreciation only.

    The coffee was weak, which surprised me. Spotty unsmiling service, save for the barista at the front.

    The actual Bear Pond near Shimokitazawa is perfect. This is the owner's alternate shop, and not nearly as intimate or memorable. I'd go with a capp here over the single-origin French Press.

    Friendly baristas, the latte is easy to drink but the only slight gripe is a lack of space to hang out for abit (eg. the plank-like counter tables). Otherwise a good option for a quick coffee fix.

    Latte is good but Americano not so. There's a sweet taste to it and not our cup of tea. Not allowed to take pictures of the shop as well!
