The Most Delicious Croissant | Boul'ange | Shinjuku, Tokyo | Japan

Visiting Tokyo and feeling a little overwhelmed by everything? Having trouble finding somewhere to eat? Let me help you out by recommending a nice little bakery.

Boul'ange is located in Shinjuku Southern Terrace, a couple of minutes walk from Shinkuju station - just be sure to take the correct exit! The bread here is freshly baked and extremely delicious (I visited here twice on my 3 day trip!) The drinks here are simple (no cafe latte, cappuccino etc.), but it gives the bread it’s time to shine. There’s limited seating indoors, but there’s a large outdoor seating area available.

I actually picked up this marble croissant cos of how beautiful it looked, but I’ve honestly never been a fan of croissants until this day. This croissant was SO fresh and flaky and delicious that I couldn’t put it down. I’ve also never been a fan of pan au chocolat, but the one I had at this bakery the following day changed my mind completely, and I’m now a HUGE croissant fan. I immediately checked on Google for Boul'ange locations where I live, and was very sad when I discovered that there is no Boul'ange bakery nearby.

I definitely recommend this bakery if you're staying in or around the area. If you're interested in visiting this bakery but won't be near Shinjuku station, try searching for their other locations on Google Maps, as there may be one closer to where you're located.

By the way, Shinjuku is one or my recommended areas to stay in when visiting Tokyo, so if you're booking a trip and still haven't decided where to stay, check out some hotels in Shinjuku!

I lived the French pastry in Japan! It was always a delicious adventure!

I love the food in Japan. As a Parisian, I love my viennoiserie and have always loved everything I ate there. I will have to try out this one for when I go back.
