Best Coffee Shops in Niseko

  • January 19, 2022

Whether it is a new snowstorm on the horizon or an exciting new resort development, good things always seem to be brewing here in Niseko – this of course includes coffee! 

Here are a few of our favorite places to grab a cup of joe:

The Day: Mountain Kiosk Coffee

Mountain Kiosk is owned and operated by pro snowboarder Hiromasa “I-chan” Ihara. As a true true, born & bred, Niseko local it's safe to say I-chan knows pretty much everything there is to know about powder – seems this knowledge has carried over into the black, freshly ground coffee powder he uses in his menu of hot & cold drinks.

Location(s): Welcome Center, .Base building & Kutchan Town* (*green season only)
Good for: a quick cup between runs
Our go-to order: almond croissant & a flat white

Green Farm Café

Green Farm Café is a favorite of locals & travelers alike & serves up roasty coffee and a varied (and vegan friendly) menu of food options. While the café is open until 5pm, you’ll typically find us there grabbing a bite for breakfast long before the lifts start spinning.

Location(s): Central Hirafu Village
Good for: grabbing a bite and a coffee before first lifts
Our go-to order: mushroom toast & an espresso

SPROUT outdoor espresso

Sprout is a great place to unwind after a long day out in the mountains. With a rotating roster of home roasted coffee beans & an ever-changing menu of baked goodies to choose from, you’re sure to find something you’ll like.

Location(s): Kutchan Town
Good for: reading a magazine, rubbing elbows with fellow outdoor enthusiasts
Our go-to order: cappuccino with haute route beans

The POW BAR café

Venture out to Niseko Town to refuel at The POW BAR café, a cozy café with various sweet treats and savory dishes. While you’re there, grab a few of their namesake snacks to stash in your backpack or jacket – great to munch on while on the chairlift or in the backcountry.

Location(s)ロケーション: Niseko Town
Good for: refueling between mountain adventures
Our go-to order: macchiato & a few Pow Bars to stash in our ski jacket
