No Bread, No Life! Japanese Bakery Heaven in Tokyo!

The land of rice? Think boulangerie instead! If you've ever been to Japan you've probably encountered the "Japanese Bakery" serving up delicious treats, usually located around train stations and pretty much anywhere people go. Here's 5 Japanese bakeries worth a visit in Tokyo!

Feel free to follow favy!

GONTRAN CHERRIER Tokyo (Shinjuku Southern Terrace)

Located right next to Shinjuku station is Gotran Cherrier! Arguably the best bakery in all of Tokyo they serve up some mean pastries and coffee alike!
Their matcha line-up is to die for! The matcha choux cream is amazing and there's heaps of other items to choose from too!
One thing to mention is that their croissant is totally on point! Look at those flaky layers!


Dominque Ansel Bakery offers something a little more chic! Located on Omotesando, and a few minutes walk from Omotesando station, this place is hugely popular with tourists and local Japanese women!
You can pretty much order anything here and not be disappointed - even better leaving you wanting to come back from seconds! Don't forget to bring your phone though, everything is super photogenic with plenty of snaps on instagram at the moment.
Two unique items here is the Frozen S'more and the Cookie Shot! Say Whaaaattttt! I'm just salivating writing about this! Nom! Nom! Nom!

Le Pain Quotidien (Shibakoen Store)

This is classic-style Japanese Bakery with a French twist. With a few locations around Tokyo the Shibakoen Store offers a bit more of a walk-in-the-park kinda feel with a warm atmosphere and an interior to make you wanna sit down enjoy a coffee and a pastry.
Located just a short 5 minute walk north of Shibakoen station on the Toei Mita line Le Pain Quotidien has a stellar array of bread and desserts. Definitely reminds you of European-style artisan bakeries.
They also so solid brunch-style meals that could be Tokyo's best European-style breakfast. Time to make plans this weekend for Sunday Brunch with you friends.

The City Bakery

The City Bakery has quite a steady following, already gaining popularity with foreign visitors and locals. Located inside Shinagawa Atre just next to Shinagawa station it's very busy with travelers and workers in the mornings and evenings trying to get a bite to eat or takeout.
There's an abundance of breads with cheese and other toppings which are favourites among the mix. There chocolate swirl brioche is definitely one of the top picks too!
And if you're wondering what the above is... head down there and ask for the hot chocolate and discover for yourself!

Centre The Bakery

Centre The Bakery is located in between Tokyo and Yurakucho station about a 4 minute walk from Ginza Ichichome station on the Yurakucho line. Very Very popular with locals and tourists, you'll see plenty of people lining up on the weekends to get a seat inside.
They have an interesting array of dishes and pastries, mostly eaten as a sit-down fare. You'd be hard-pressed to find a fruit sandwich overseas, but here it's one of their most order items. Fresh cream and fruit and soft bread - YUM!
One thing I really like about this place (one of the main reasons people come here) is the fresh bread tasting set. You literally get a toaster at your table and toast your bread yourself. It comes with a selection of jams and spreads that compliment the delicious bread.
I've been traveling and eating my way around the world! Now I'm in Tokyo to share all my favourite spots! I spend my time traveling, surfing, hiking, camping and eating amazing food! My favourite Japanese food...Agedashi Tofu!
