Can we count on a tennis player to get things done in the bread business too? The start is certainly looking promising for Kimiko Date's Frau Krumm, a German-style bakery opened right by the Shibuya River in between Ebisu and Hiroo in August 2016. In addition to the obligatory pretzels, stangen bread sticks and Austrian kaiser rolls, the shelves are stacked with less familiar but very competently crafted Teutonic loafs and rolls, plus sandwiches filled with sauerkraut and sausages. Krumm's coffee comes courtesy of Setagaya's excellent Horiguchi, making the shop worth a morning stop (it opens from 7.30am every day) even if you're not planning a carb feast.
