Cafe de KAVE – trending cafe in Tokyo opened by a top Korean star

Jaejoong at Cafe de KAVE

Located in the Korea Town of Shin Okubo, Tokyo, there’s a newly opened and trending cafe – Cafe de KAVE, known for its pastel interior and tapioca drinks served in cute plastic cans. What makes it even more attractive, and probably the main contributing factor of the daily long queues is because this cafe is opened by none other than Jaejoong of JYJ!

Branded as a food and premium dessert cafe, the cafe serves beverages such as organic tapioca drinks, Kave detox juices and the usual coffee and tea, along with cakes and pancakes.

The range of tapioca drinks available, starting from 530 yen

The aesthetics of the cafe makes every corner Instagram-worthy, especially with the cute plastic can packaging for the beverages. However, do take note that this cafe which opened its doors in late November still sees long queues at certain times of the day, and the best-selling tapioca drinks can get sold out by 8PM (or even earlier)!
