Tokyo Sweets Factory
A cross between a French patisserie and an American cupcake shop, Tokyo Sweets Factory is located on the basement level of a Jiyugaoka office building. A glass façade admits plenty of natural light into the shop, which is furnished with exposed light bulbs, blond wood shelving and furniture, and an open kitchen where the staff bakes homemade treats daily. Glass display cases are lined with a variety of items, including muffins, cupcakes, iced cookies, fruit tarts, cream-filled roll cakes, and macarons (meringue-based cookie sandwiches filled with buttercream). The store also serves light lunch fare, such as salads and quiches.
