Aiyo brings back memories of Showa period.
I rarely have coffee at cafe (kissaten) in Tsukiji market because the shop is so narrow and there’re always many people working in the market.
But I found there were not many people in the shop the other day. So, finally, I tried this shop named “Aiyo” .
Aiyo is located between Sushidai having long line and Tenfusa serving tempura.
Menus. There’re drinks mainly on the menu.
Foods are… toast, boiled egg. That’s all.
I don’t recommend you come this shop with empty stomach :p
They have counter seats mainly and there’re two tables having four chairs each at the back of the shop.
But many people want to be seated along the counter table because of such an old atmosphere. There remains Showa period.
I chose hot milk coffee (ホットミルクコーヒー, 450 yen). My drink was served in the glass. It’s hot to hold. But the coffee wasn’t too hot because it had cold milk in it. My drink was served with sugar in advance. So, it was sweet enough.
The manager try to understand simple English words. So, you can enjoy this shop even though you can’t speak Japanese.
Foreign tourists came after me and enjoyed this shop. Of course, they wanted to be seated along counter seats.
