Dominique Ansel

Dominique Ansel, who won the James Beard Award, originated the famous "cronut" (a doughnut made of croissant pastry) in NYC.

Although he got incredibly famous thanks to the cronut, he is famous for others sweets as well, such as the frozen S'more treat (¥750), which is torched marshmallow with ice cream and chocolate chips inside; and the cookie shot (¥480), a cookie made in the shape of a cup so you can drink your milk out of it! There are loads of delicious seasonal sweets to try too!
If you have a sweet tooth, this is heaven!

He now has two branches in Tokyo: in Omotesando and in Ginza.

The Omotesando branch is a few minutes from the station.
Be prepared to queue as this place's popularity isn't dying down!

The Ginza branch is in the basement of the Mitsukoshi department store and tends to be a lot less crowded!

Menu

You can pretty much order anything here and not be disappointed - even better leaving you wanting to come back for seconds! Don't forget to bring your phone though, everything is super photogenic with plenty of snaps on instagram at the moment.
Apart from the seasonal sweets, you can't go wrong with the cookie shots and the Kouign Amann
Right now, you can try the corn ice cream served on grilled corn on the cob, brushed with soy sauce and butter. Delish!

Locations

There are two locations in Tokyo to choose from, one in Ginza and one in Omotesando.

Online Boutique

There is also an online boutique where you can pick up the items directly at the store, or you can have delivered it to your house.
