Coffee shop culture and Nagoya-style breakfast
Coffee shops are an ingrained part of life for the people of Nagoya, and they can be seen all over the town. They are used in a variety of ways — as a place to relax, as a place to talk, and so on.
Nagoya’s coffee shops excel in customer service by offering free breakfast deals, known as “morning service” in Japanese. This consists of toast, a hardboiled egg, a salad, or something similar provided free of charge with any cup of coffee purchased during breakfast hours (the exact item varies by coffee shop).
Nagoya is the birthplace of this practice as well as being the birthplace of manga cafés.
* Visitors should note that not all coffee shops offer “morning service” breakfast deals.
