Boulangerie Patisserie Viron
Unlike the over-orderly bread at Japanese bakeries, the pastries at Boulangerie Patisserie Viron are all bunched up behind the counter window. (Photo by the author)

Boulangerie Patisserie Viron across from Bunkamura may just be the city's best bakery.

The baguettes, made from imported French flour, destroy the competition, and Viron always has pastries not available anywhere else.

For those with a bit of time on their hands, dine upstairs in the brasserie for a bit of Parisian atmosphere and with a name like Boulangerie Patisserie Viron, what else would you expect? The croque monsieur, croque madame or some steak frites all do the job, and the service is impeccable.
