You Can Order a 3D Latte Art to Go at this Coffee Stand in Asakusa Tokyo

Tokyo is famous for its thriving cafe scene and renowned latte artists who excel in both 3D and 2D art. And you know what’s even more amazing? There’s a coffee shop that exclusively serves adorable take-out 3D latte art. How incredible is that?

During our recent visit to Asakusa, Tokyo, we stumbled upon a hidden coffee stand on a charming side street. It had a unique standing menu that showcased impressive 3D latte art. It’s easy to miss if you’re too caught up in the hustle and bustle of Asakusa!

We were sold the moment we saw the pictures of 3D latte art on the menu, so we went straight into the coffee stand. It’s evident that the barista knows what they got to offer – Instagrammable latte art and they even curated a small pocket of space within the shop for customers to take photos.

The coffee stand is located on the second floor. To reach it, you’ll need to take the stairs. Be cautious when descending as the staircase can be quite steep. Avoid using your phone and focus on safely making your way down. We have observed guests falling along with their freshly brewed 3D latte.

We were fortunate that despite arriving at noon, we didn’t have to wait in line for too long. The entire process of getting our queue ticket, ordering our preferred drink, and choosing our 3D latte art was simple. It’s worth noting that the shop only accepts cashless payments. The regular 3D latte art is priced at around 1000 yen (approx. SGD$10), but if you want further customization, it will cost around 1300 to 1500 yen (approx. SGD$13 to $15).

Pro tip: If you have a particular 3D design in mind, remember to research it, and save it on your phone and present it to the Barista when it’s your turn to order.

The most exciting part is when the barista begins to prepare the 3D art with a cup of milk foam. You will be called to the counter, and phone stands will be provided for you to record this moment!

Here’s what we ordered: a cafe latte and a matcha latte

The 3D latte art really holds up well! Here’s a photo after I have taken several sips:

Another great thing about Hat Coffee is that it isn’t just about the cute presentation of their drinks – the taste matters too! All of their drinks are made with high-quality ingredients that are carefully selected by the barista who makes them. That means each cup of coffee (or other beverage) tastes as good as it looks!
