The world famous boulangerie from Paris, Maison Kayser now has several shops in Tokyo, but who actually makes the best baguette? Of course, Maison Kasyer is great, but my favorite is BAGUETTE RETRODOR from VIRON in Shibuya.

Viron got its name and uses flour from Minoteries Viron, a long-established flour manufacturer from France. In France, a baguette contest is held every year and majority of winners use a flour called Retrodor from Minoteries Viron. However, retrodor wasn't available in Japan until Viron opened in Shibuya. Viron actually has no relationship with the flour manufacturer, but it is the only boulangerie in Japan allowed to use the flour.


バゲット・レトロドール(357円)
Baguette Retrodor is 357 yen, which is about 50-60 yen more expensive than its competitors like Maison Kayser, but the aroma and taste of the flour is simply amazing.

For Croissant, retrodor is used as well and so as the famous Echire butter, which makes the croissant extra rich in flavor.


クロワッサンオンザマンド
To those who love Almond Croissant, CROISSANT AUX AMANDES is also very popular.


viron sandwich
Many baguette sandwiches are available through out the day.

And many other breads are beautifully displayed.

Viron is actually a patisserie as well, and has many cakes available, but I've never tried any.

The 2nd floor is a brasserie, where they serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and also is a cafe between lunch and dinner, where you can eat anything available at the 1st floor.

Their assorted bread breakfast called VIRON-NO CHOSHOKU, which comes with coffee or tea, is a great breakfast if you are a bread lover like me.

and White Liver Pate.

For breakfast & lunch, especially on weekends there could be a long wait depending on the time you go since they only take reservations for dinner. But even if you don't dine at the 2nd floor, you will always want to at least purchase Baguette Retrodor and bring it back home with you. They also have a shop/restaurant in an area called Marunouchi, which is near Tokyo station.
