Patisserie Française Quatre

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
It's all about the eggs at Quatre. Owner Kenji Higashi – a veteran of Japan's first French-run patisserie, A.Lecomte – always has around 20 different cakes on display at his Kakinokizaka shop, including a variety of seasonal offerings. But it's the oeuf puddings – pocket-sized confections of custard and caramel sauce, each served in an egg shell (¥179 each) – that really made his name. These novel treats are now sold at department stores throughout the city; buy them in bulk and you can get them in an egg carton, making for an unusual (not to mention rather yummy) gift. Quatre also offers a range of cakes, tarts, croissants and breads (including an excellent savoury cake salé), as well as a menu of sandwiches and light meals for eat-in customers. And dog owners, take note: your pet pooches are welcome on the outdoor terrace.
