For Hardcore Dessert Lovers! Fulfill Your Sugar Craving At American Desserts Shops In Tokyo!

Sometimes you crave really sweet desserts right? Japanese desserts may not be sweet enough for some people, so here is an article introducing famous American dessert shops that are located in Tokyo!

Feel free to follow favy!

Auntie Anne's

Auntie Anne's is a pretzel store originated in Pennsylvania, USA. As pretzel shops are not common in Japan, it was shocking when this store first arrived in Japan!
They have freshly baked pretzels in different flavours such as salt, cinnamon and other traditional flavours that are sold in all Auntie Anne's stores worldwide.
However, as Japanese culture has a strong appreciation towards the change of seasons, they also have seasonal pretzels only sold in Japan. For example, this is the "Tochiotome Ichigo Pretzel" which uses the Japanese strawberry brand, Tochiotome, to make this pretzel.

1-30-1 Kabukicho, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo

Cinnabon is a cinnamon roll store originated in Seattle, USA and is famous for their Cinnabon Classic Roll. Now Cinnabon and Seattle's Best Coffee is a combined store, so you can enjoy fresh coffee with you cinnabon!
Cinnabons are freshly baked at the store so you can enjoy the fresh taste and great smell of cinnamon. It is much sweeter compared to Japanese desserts, so you can enjoy the American-style desserts by going to Cinnabon in Japan!


Cold Stone Creamery originated in Arizona, USA. They are famous for making the ice cream on a cold stone that is -9℃, where they mix various toppings on the dessert!
And...they will sing for you while they are making your special ice cream!
They have a variety of ice creams and toppings to choose from, but the stores located in Japan have limited flavors like matcha flavor that you can only enjoy when you are in Japan! There are many Cold Stone stores located all over Japan!

Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts originated in North Carolina, USA and they are known for their "Original Glazed Doughnut." Even within Tokyo, there are 11 stores located, so it has become a very popular doughnut shop in Japan too!

In the Japan stores, they have the original flavors like chocolate sprinkles, cinnamon sugar, and original glazed, so you can enjoy the real American doughnuts even when you are in Japan.
However, the seasonal doughnuts are definitely worth trying as well. Every few months, Krispy Kreme comes up with a new seasonal collection of doughnuts. For example, this is a sakura doughnut that can only be eaten during the sakura season. It is a Japan-limited taste that you should definitely try!

Ben & Jerry's

Ben & Jerry's originated in Vermont, USA. As they use fresh milk and cream produced from local farms, their ice cream is very rich and milky. Also, their ice cream is known for having very chunky, big toppings so you can actually enjoy the texture of each topping.
While the Ben & Jerry's stores in Japan have the traditional flavors such as chocolate fudge brownie, chunky monky, cherry garcia and other famous flavors, the stores in Japan have more! They have Japan-limited flavors like "green enertea," which is a mix of matcha ice cream, caramel sauce and roasted almonds!

Magnolia Bakery

Magnolia Bakery is known as the cup cake store that comes out in the film, "Sex and the City" and is originated in New York, USA. They have one store located in Japan, in Omotesando and is very popular among young adults who crave for cute and tasty desserts!

But, just like other dessert shops listed above, this store also incorporates the Japanese culture by making seasonal cupcakes such as the sakura cupcake that can only be eaten at this store!

In Japan, there are two stores located in Ginza and Omotesando, but it is always full of dessert lovers waiting to eat his delicious desserts.
Another famous dessert in the original NYC store is the frozen s"mores, which is made up of vanilla ice cream, chocolate flakes, and marshmallow seared with a burner. You can enjoy other NY style desserts such as cookie shots in Tokyo!
However, this is a Japan-only item called "Paris Tokyo" and it is a dessert that adds a taste of Japan to the traditional Paris breast by using Matcha ganache.
