Tucked away in residential Waseda, this bakery is only a few blocks from the picturesque Kanda River. The bakery consists of just a small shop front with a few outdoor seats, but you can’t miss it as a queue is often seen snaking down the street.
The selection of fresh baked goods here is absolutely divine and changes with the seasons. Of course, they’ve also got a handful of staples like shokupan (Japanese milk bread), and crusty baguettes.
If you want to try some of the more interesting creations, opt for the beautiful matcha anpan which features twists of matcha-flavoured bean paste in between layers of soft white bread. The seasonal chestnut coffee brioche is also a must-try during the autumn. Instead of the classic bacon epi, the bakery turns out a lovely rendition featuring sausage and grainy mustard. There’s even a daily French toast, which on our visit was filled with bacon and cheese.
