Boasting over 160 years of chocolate-making history, Lausanne-based Blondel set up their first-ever overseas store in Ginza in 2012. The two-storey location features a well-stocked shop on the ground floor, where you'll find the brand's famed 'hammer chocolate' sold by the gram, plus plentiful truffles, pralines and other cutesy creations. Upstairs is a café that serves 16 varieties of chocolate drinks, chocolate ice cream, Swiss wine, champagne and small snacks.
