The 7 Best Bakeries in Tokyo You Need To Try

The best bakeries in Tokyo range from small, humble shops to glamorous world-class boutiques. If you know where to go, you can experience some of the best quality breads and pastries in the world.

In this guide, I pulled together a list of the best bakeries in Tokyo for you to try.

What are the best bakeries in Tokyo?

Brød in Tokyo

Brød is run by a Danish couple and specializes in organic, vegan sourdough bread

Specialty: sourdough bread

Neighborhood: Hiroo

Price: $$$


Brød is a little bakery tucked away in a backstreet of Hiroo. They specialize in sourdough bread and almost all of their products are fully organic and vegan (interested in more vegan options in Tokyo? Check out my guide here.).

The bakery is owned by a Danish couple that moved to Tokyo five years ago and started to bake sourdough bread for themselves. They noticed a gap in the Japanese market for Danish-style sourdough and rye breads, so they opened their store in late 2022.

The loaves of bread are hearty, large, and full of flavor.

Fuglen is a trendy, popular bakery and coffee shop just east of Yoyogi Park in Shibuya.

They offer Scandinavian pastries and coffee and have indoor and outdoor seating. The cafe is relatively small and on weekends it can be difficult to get in, so expect to wait in line!

Fuglen is the perfect spot for a casual breakfast or afternoon snack.

Specialty: French pastries and bread

Neighborhood: Shibuya

Price: $$

Brasserie Viron is one of the best French bakeries in Tokyo. They have a huge selection of pastries, breads, sandwiches, and patisseries along with a specialty crepe menu.

Whether you’re looking for daily baguettes or special occasion cakes, Brasserie Viron is a top choice.

There is a delicious French bistro above the bakery that you can enjoy for a sit down meal as well.

Arnaudlarher in Hiroo in Tokyo

Specialty: chocolates

Neighborhood: Hiroo

Price: $$$

Arnaud Larher is the eponymous, premium boutique of a renowned Parisian chocolatier.

You will find a beautiful assortment of handcrafted chocolates that make for an indulgent dessert or gift. The location in Hiroo is near the popular main street of the neighborhood, so you have many restaurant options to try first before picking up something sweet at Arnaud Larher.

Truffle Bakery Hiroo

Truffle Bakery Hiroo almost always has a line.

Specialty: truffle rolls

Neighborhood: Hiroo

Price: $$

Instagram: @trufflebakery

Truffle Bakery is known for, you guessed it, their truffle rolls. These rolls are one of my favorite and unique baked breads in the area. Imagine a rich, soft roll drizzled with truffle-infused oil and flakes of sea salt – how could it not be good?!

The bakery also offers other breads and pastries that aren’t truffle flavored, but I strongly recommend you try their specialty.

Be ready to wait in a long line as this bakery can be very busy, especially on the weekends.

Pastries at The Grand Hyatt Tokyo

Fiorentina Pastry Boutique features items from the Grand Hyatt Tokyo’s bakery and dessert selections (pictured above).

Specialty: French desserts

Neighborhood: Roppongi

Price: $$$

Fiorentina Pastry Boutique is the glamorous shop of the Grand Hyatt Tokyo. You can take home breads, pastries, chocolates, and other sweets that are popular at the hotel’s bakery and restaurant.

The pastry team at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo is one of the most recognized and celebrated in Japan. If you’re looking for a chance to experience high-end French desserts in Japan, visit Fiorentina Pastry Boutique.

Specialty: bread

Neighborhood: Roppongi

Price: $$

Bricolage bread & co. is a laid-back bakery and cafe that specializes in artisanal breads.

Unlike many bakeries in Tokyo, Bricolage bread & co. has seating, so sit and relax while enjoying one of their pastries or meal sets.

They open unusually early in the morning for Tokyo (7 or 8AM depending on the day), so this bakery is a great early breakfast option.
