MOVE CAFÉ is a popular café located near the Shinjuku 5-chome intersection, where Yasukuni-dori and Meiji-dori meet. While it is a café, it also features healthy dishes and a variety of alcoholic beverages, including craft beers. Furthermore, the café’s sweets, carefully crafted by a pastry chef, and other carefully baked treats are all cute items you can’t overlook.

The café’s great-value lunch menu includes meal options like special taco rice and spiced curry, all which come with drinks. You can order off of the lunch menu until 4:00pm.
At night, the café takes on a moodier atmosphere, lit by candles. Delicious dishes, like easy-to-divide pizza, pasta, and ajillo are available, which pair amazingly with popular craft beers. Meal plans perfect for parties are also available.

The front desk and takeout areas are on the 2nd floor, while the 3rd floor features comfy and stylish customer seating at wooden tables and sofas. The café is small, but you’re able to relax and take your time as you’re separate from other customers. This tucked-away café is somewhere you’ll want to visit over and over.


  • The interior, sweets, and food presentation are all cute, so the café is particularly popular with female customers.
