From Tokyo to Hong Kong, an iconic coffee destination lands in Central—here are all the exclusive items to try

Established in 2012 in the eponymous Tokyo neighbourhood, Omotesando Koffee has grown from a single quaint pop-up to a global brand with cafes in Hong Kong, London, Singapore and Bangkok. Known for their minimalist approach in design combined with strong attention to detail, Omotesando Koffee continues to push the boundaries of Japanese coffee culture around the world.

Returning temporarily to its pop-up roots, Omotesando Koffee has taken up residence on the ground floor of Haus, the lifestyle space by Mercedes Benz, IWC Schaffhausen and Tatler Dining, from now until 30 September 2021. It’s the fourth coffee concept to take over the space since Haus debuted with JIA Group’s Between Coffee, then Interval by Twins Kitchen and July’s Illy Coffee and Mandarin Oriental collaboration.

At the new space, you can expect a range of Omotesando Koffee classics, from iced cappuccinos to hot matcha lattes, served alongside their iconic cube-shaped kashi (their take on a canele) and an array of specialty sandos. Exclusive to the HAUS pop-up are the shrimp katsu sando and special wagyu beef curry created in collaboration with Nikushou, who are currently running the Uza restaurant pop-up upstairs on the first floor of Tatler Dining Kitchen.

Other unmissable items include the wagyu katsu sando (served with house-made daikon pickles), the pizza toast (a quirky stalwart of kissatens, or nostalgic Japanese cafes) as well as non-coffee creations such as the melon cream soda, a guaranteed thirst-quencher for the summer. 

Omotesando Koffee at Haus is open from Monday to Saturday, 10:00am to 7:00pm.
