This bakery is run by the company behind popular Shibuya eateries like Italian restaurant Shibu Dra and Espresso D Works. It offers loads of freshly baked bread and pastries from 9am daily, including everything from your basic loaves of shokupan and sweet muffins to gourmet sandwiches and miniature pies.
Come 10am, you’ll get to sit down in the café area for a special brunch meal, and you can even enjoy an afternoon tea set from 2pm to 4pm. The popular brunch set (¥1,700) comes with a salad, soup, and your choice of four baked goods from a lineup of more than ten different freshly baked treats. It also comes with free tea refills, but do expect long queues if you want to eat in. From 5pm, Flour and Water transforms into Dra7, an Italian dining bar where you can feast on thin crust pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven.
While there’s an overwhelming amount of bread to choose from, you can’t go wrong with a simple Angel’s Croissant (¥302) made with cultured French butter to give it a flaky crust. If you’re looking for something a little more substantial, the sausage genovese croissant sandwich (¥528) will do the trick. This original creation has a pork sausage inside a croissant, with shiso, red cabbage and housemade genovese sauce. The croque-madame with smoked salmon and spinach (¥410) is also a good choice, especially if you’re keen for some fresh veggies.
And if you get there early enough, you might be able to get your hands on the hojicha pudding strawberry pie (¥486). This standout pastry often sells out early in the day.
