REVIEW: Haishop Sustainable Cafe – Shibuya

Scroll down to content

When in Japan, having any type of matcha dessert is a must! That’s why once I started to feel better and during our last full day, we made a quick stop at this cafe to rejuvenize for the rest of the busy day ahead. Before you read my review below, I would appreciate it if you can follow me on TiktokInstagram, and Facebook, especially since I will be posting more Japanese food and travel content! See below for a video teaser of what to expect.

Location and About

To be frank, as a vegetarian in Japan it was hard to find food for us that was actually vegetarian or vegan. Therefore, while we were at Shibuya Sky we noticed that if you take the elevator (you will see in the video) back down, there are numerous shops and food options including this special cafe within the Shibuya Scramble Square building, so you can make a day out of it if you wanted to. The exact location for the cafe and the square is 〒150-0002 Tokyo, Shibuya City, Shibuya, 2 Chome−24−12 スクランブルスクエア 7階. This is on the second floor I believe, within a food court. You can access maps and staff to help you once you arrive at the building. This is an 8-minute walk from Shibuya Parco and an 11-minute walk from Jordan World of Flight Tokyo.

In terms of what makes this cafe special in addition to the many vegetarian and vegan options, the cafe states they use eco-friendly ingredients and even encourage customers to bring their own tumbler or container. I noticed even with their utensils and setup, it was also environmentally conscious. Keep in mind their seating is part of the bigger food court area with some seats near the cafe.


In my opinion, the prices here were fair and standard for a special cafe. The vegan matcha cookie I got was ¥200 I believe and the vegan matcha dessert was ¥660. The two vegan soy burgers were priced at ¥1,100 which is not too bad. TIP: If you do plan on going here I would recommend going early as we went around 3:30 pm and already several items were sold out.


I was a bit nervous about the vegan soy burger but it did not disappoint. It was worth the price in my opinion as the patty itself is cooked nicely and is complemented with tasty pickles, creamy avocado slices, as well as fresh lettuce and tomatoes. The matcha dessert was interesting because I was a bit surprised when I was eating it since the texture and feel of it reminded me of shaved ice with cookie bits at the bottom. Also, it was really cold. Nonetheless, I really liked it, especially since you can taste the quality of matcha in this dessert. In terms of the cookie, I love that you can taste the matcha flavor and it was warm, but it felt a tad stale.


All in all, I liked eating at this cafe and would recommend coming back. I do hope they can add to their menu in the future so that they can have more items in stock throughout the day. I love the initiative that Haishop is doing and I am curious to see how they scale in the future.
