Cherry Coffee Roasters


As much as we appreciate the story behind Cherry Coffee Roasters and its unique space, it really comes down to the coffee. And Cherry’s coffee is solid.

French Truck

French Truck Coffee bridges the gap between traditional chicory coffee and third wave coffee with its special blend of roasted Colombian and Brazilian beans with French chicory added after roasting.


Mojo Coffee House

To us, the best part about Mojo is its welcoming vibe that starts with the baristas and extends to the cafe’s big, airy space filled with people chilling and working on laptops.


HiVOLT Coffee

The cafe still has a Japanese Oji drip tower just like the one we later saw at Omotesando Koffee in Tokyo.


Backatown Coffee Parlour

This comfortable cafe has a friendly, vaulted space and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating ideal for relaxing with friends or pulling out a laptop.
