Lost in the narrow streets of residential Shirokanedai, you’ll find “Comme Paris” a lovely patisserie owned by Iwai Kouto.
As soon as you step into Comme Paris, you’ll be greeted by the delicious aroma of French Madeleines, Fruit Tarts and my favorite “Canelé’.
Canelé is a small French pastry that has a soft and tender custard center and a dark, thick caramelized crust… Heaven!
All these delicious treats also come in very nicely packaged boxes, great for gifts and souvenirs.
Tokyo is getting serious about French pastry and taking it to a whole new level. There are lots of places in town but I still like small charming spots like “Comme Paris” where you can have a chat with the owner and get that feeling of friendly cozy neighbor even in big cities like Tokyo.
I’d like to thank Comme Paris ’s owner that kindly let me shoot inside their charming Patisserie… ありがとうございます!!
