“Best croissants - flaky and buttery”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Bought breakfast every morning - quiches, chocolate croissant, almond croissant and ham (jamon) and cheese - all beautiful mouth watering pastries. Coffee was good too. Convenient location to our hotel Sunroute Shinjuku. Bakery closes at 10pm.

“Amazing pastries”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Giving the high prices for breakfast in Tokyo, if you are looking for a european breakfast, this is the place to go. I tried most of their pastries and I have to say they are all way above average. The stars go to their Pain au Chocolat and the Almond Croissant. They are probably the best I've ever had in my life (way better than from La duree). The bread is also exquisitely good and above the standards you would find in any city including Paris. A shame they don't have a bakery in London.

“Delicious pastries, quick breakfast”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

Located just across from the Shinjuku station on the Southern Terrace promenade. I had the croissant, medium coffee and another caramel puff pastry type for about $7. Delicious! And way better than anything the Starbucks two doors down offered. They also had a selection of quiche and small savory pastries if you wanted a little more substance for breakfast. I would not travel across Tokyo to visit but when in Shinjuku I recommend it. Lots of seating upstairs and downstairs.

“Quick and delicious”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

The pastries at this cafe / bakery are fantastic, especially when they are hot out of the oven. The coffee is excellent as well. There is a small amount of seating up a very steep set of stairs.

Takeout is available.

Not accessible as far as I could tell, but I may have missed an exterior access.
