    This place is no joke, it sells out everyday! Strawberry croissants live up to the hype. Curry katsu was delish! Love that you can stop here and get both.

    First visit? Try the strawberry croissant. Strawberries are fresh and sweet, and the croissant is perfectly buttery and flaky.

    They're famous for strawberry croissants. Azuki creams are good too, and if you like red bean get a donut with red bean filling. Mmm

    Place is super chaotic. Very few people in the bakery and they made my group go through an arbitrary line. I was asked by 3 different employees "what do you want?" In the 30 seconds from arriving.

    You have to try their chocolate orange dessert. There's a reason they only make a certain amount. The combination of the two is mind blowing once you take a bite. Chocolate and orange is the new duo

    Try the Salmon Onigiri! They mix the salmon meat into the rice before sculpting. Every mouthful is a perfectly proportioned ratio of the two ingredients, salty and satisfyingly salmon-y. Read more
