The City Bakery, a New York Favorite, is a Must-Try in Tokyo!

The City Bakery is a cozy bakery where you can easily come in to have a chat with some friends, or get some work done, all the while enjoying some delicious pastries. Although famous for the "croissant pretzel", there is also so much more to discover.

Feel free to follow favy!

The City Bakery

The City Bakery, originally from New York, was founded by Maury Rubin in 1989. After a huge success in New York, he eventually opened branches in Tokyo as well.
He is acclaimed for this amazing hot chocolates and his Pretzel Croissants.

He now has 15 branches all over the world! 4 of which are in Tokyo! One in Shinagawa, in Hiroo, in Ginza and in Nakameguro. (Please see the link at the bottom of the page for more location information).


At the City Bakery, you can all sorts of delicious pastries, such as scones, croissants, HUGE cookies, etc. And you can also get lunch, such as salads, and sandwiches!
Can you look at those pastries directly and resist? I dare you!

Drink Menu

They have some great coffee and fresh juices (kale, avocado, orange, etc.)! But, I particularly recommend the Marshmallow with hot chocolate, especially since the marshmallow is homemade! He also created the City Bakery Annual Hot Chocolat Festival, which always draws a crowd! So you know you're in for something special!


City Bakery has 4 locations in Tokyo: Ginza, Hiroo, Nakameguro and Shingawa, but they also have some locations across Japan!
In my opinion, the Hiroo location is particularly enjoyable. If you're not in a rush, you can sit by the window, and read a book, while doing some people watching in that chic neighborhood!

I love traveling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
