Guess what they sell in here.
In my ongoing quest to find the best bakery in Kyoto, I ventured over to Bread Room today. I think it may have overtaken Walder in my estimation as the leading contender. I spent almost 2,000 yen on a variety of baked goods and I wasn’t disappointed by the flavor. First the savories; left to right clockwise: Olive Ciabatta for 180 yen, Potato & Tapénade (artichoke and olive Paste) “Pizza” (not really pizza more like a focaccia) for 240, and a “Roast Vegetable Sandwich” 320. The sandwich was excellent; heaps of veggies plus hummus and a nice lemony dressing.
Then the sweets; an apple & cranberry muffin (awesome!) for 200 yen and a nice squidgy carrot cake for 210.
And of course the majestic loaf. This one is a multi-grain bread with 16 different grains. Nice and healthy for 750 yen.
Bread Room is on the south side of Nijo, just east of Fuyacho. There’s a patisserie next door, but I didn’t go in. I’m sweet enough. Here is a map.
Closed on Wednesdays and the first and third Thursday of the month. For further details about what’s available and when, click on the image to the right =>.
