Their logo is a red bird marking. The shop is a remodeled Japanese home that fits right alongside the quiet neighborhood it’s in. They have many tables and chairs outside too and there’s a lot of relaxing space for all types from people having breakfast, reading newspapers, using their computers to people in deep thought or enjoying a conversation.
Inside there’s the warmth of natural wood and they say it’s a replica of the main store, the Fuglen Oslo. Norwegian vintage furniture and ceramics line the interior and you can also buy one if you take a liking to it.
We recommend the AeroPress Coffee

They have the AeroPress and drip brews but we recommend their AeroPress coffee, which is the signature drink at Fuglen Tokyo. AeroPress is a method of squeezing out the coffee bean extract by air pressure so that you can enjoy the original taste of the coffee beans. They’re lightly roasted for you to enjoy a surprisingly fruity tartness of Norwegian coffee. Indeed, this is the taste of fresh coffee beans!
Enjoy Your Breakfast Too
They also sell several breads that go well with Norwegian coffee and a fruity coffee with sweet bread makes the perfect pair. You’re also free to bring your own food so you can bring something else that you want to eat.
The fashionable interior feels fancy but there’s no need to break the bank. Their prices are reasonable so stop by as you like. They have English menus and English-speaking staff, which is great for those who don’t speak Japanese. The Norwegians living in Japan will agree, you may end up addicted after your first drink!
