Just got back from having coffee at Pause, a new cafe that opened last week just down the road from my place. I was really excited about the place opening because Ikebukuro is not really known for its stylish cafes, like the kind you find in Aoyama. I was very happy by the look inside, as well as the music being played in the background. There’s also quite an interesting selection of books on display, most of them German or Russian. I have a feeling I’m going to be there often from now on.
