Do not miss this place for the croissant and the buns and cakes, amazing. Fresh from the oven everyday, impeccably clean and efficient. Find a table and enjoy wonderful bread or franch patisserie with a japanese twist. Express is really italian and the yoghurt is delicious. Great way to start or end the day in Shinjuku, before going to work... More

At 730am on a Sunday morning I went looking for food around Shinjuku station. Not many places were open at this hour even around the train station, except Gontran Cherrier. Fresh croissants, fast service and you can even get coffee Americano.

If (as many) don't have breakfast included in your hotel stay, opt for Gontran Cherrier and you can enjoy a very good selection of pastries along with a decent coffee/cappuccino (forgive me, I'm italian then too much pretentious about coffee)

Excellent croissant, coffee, baguette. We found this place and went to it during our stay in Shinjuku, Japan. It's always crowded there so it's hard to find a table.

Gontran Cherrier was the first place in Japan we had eaten on our arrival. The place is rather small but quite nice. My only criticism was a bit flimsy tables, which make it look like a cheap cafe and do not contribute into the ambience of the place. However, its rolls and cakes are very high quality and very tasty.... More

We just passed by and saw a lot of persons are waiting for the queue. Then we decide to try. Bread is very fresh and delicious. Croissant is one of the best I've ever had.

A friend who had recently been to Japan recommended we try this bakery out, and I'm so glad we did. French style bakeries seem to be very big in Japan, and while we did try a number of them throughout our travels, I think this was my favourite. They have a decent selection, fairly well priced, great for a quick... More

Loved Gotran Cherrier for a quick breakfast of great coffee and pastries when we stayed at the fantastic Hotel Century Southern Terrace nearby.

We just happened across this cafe as we were staying nearby and needed to grab something for breakfast. The coffee and hot chocolate were really good, and pastries and breads delicious. Even better once we realised there was upstairs seating, and went back a couple of times. Always good.
