Will definitely go again

Went there for the first time and found the quality good and the prices quite reasonable (for Tokyo). Their plain croissants are very light and tasty, and not as greasy as some others (and a steal at Y180). We also liked the texture of their small loaves of multi-grain bread (Pain aux of... read more

Also marked with a sign saying, "Artisan Boulangerie," this is a cheery little self-service place across the pedestrian overpass from the South entrance to Shinjuku station. It is off the street, on a pedestrian mall that continues south to Starbucks and Krispy Kreme. Fresh rolls, croissants, and tarts are the specialty, including a few non-Western items like curried vegetables. My... More

This place was amazing, presentation was immaculate, very clean, excellent service. It's a self-serve bakery, you enter, take a tray & some tongs & work your way around all the trays of rolls, sweet treats, cakes etc. You then get to the counter where you can order hot drinks, they take credit cards. You can either take away or sit... More

I was looking for a western breakfast (i'm sorry, but fish isn't going to do it for me) and stumbled upon this. It is conveniently located next to the craziest place on earth (a.k.a. Shinjuku station). Grat quiche, coffee, and croissants. There is also a Starbucks next door if you have to have a flavored latte.

Savouries or sweets, you get the best of them here! And freshly baked all day. Its a great way to start your day. The coffee is great, and so is the variety on offer. A Starbucks it is not, thankfully! Though you have some great New York kind of music playing in the background!

Had better croissants here than I've found in Paris or NYC! Excellent presentation and I could pay with my Pasmo card.

A delightful little bakery in the heart of Shibuya, a wonderful place to kick off each day should your hotel not include breakfast. Awesome collection of pastries covering both sweet and savory desires. Good coffee and the Royal Milk Tea was a favorite of my wife's. A lovely setting with quite a nice relaxing design. A really great place to... More

We ate here every morning we were in Shinjuku, it was that good. The olive bread, croissants, and other pastries were filling and fresh at a reasonable price. The coffee was very good as well, hot and not too acidic. Also, it's right across from Shinjuku Station, very convenient.

Was half expertly that the ham and cheese croissant will be soft without crisp when bitten due to moisture of the ingredient but it turn out brilliant - crispy on the outside and tasty and soft on the inside. Unlike the ones in Singapore but I believe it partly due to weather as Japan is dry while Singapore is hot... More

To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April.
