'Kissa Nijusseiki,' a coffee shop produced by 20th Century will open at CORAL Bldg. in Jingumae, Tokyo on November 1.
The members of 20th Century felt sad that there are now less and less coffee shops compared to when they were growing up. They wanted to "leave behind a cafe culture for the future," so they spent about 2 years preparing for the opening of 'Kissa Nijusseiki.'
Many coffee shops are family-owned, and many of them have been shutting their doors due to the deterioration of the buildings or aging of its owners. 'Kissa Nijusseiki' took over some of the interior pieces of those shops and reused them, aiming to become a bridge for cafe culture of the future.
In addition to coffee, 'Kissa Nijusseiki' will serve Napolitan spaghetti, egg salad sandwich, sodas, etc. all inspired by the menu of Showa coffee shops. They will also have drip coffee and coffee beans for sale. Finally, they will place a JBL vintage speaker in the shop so cafe-goers can enjoy original songs that will only be played at the shop.
