Apparently present all over Kyoto, this particular bakery was close to our hotel and we stepped in unresearched for an afternoon snack and coffee. We had a quite tasty super-thick raisin toast that came with coffee for one plus a separate caffe latte. The bakery items look very enticing and people seemed to like them. This is a quiet little place and we got into a pleasant if somewhat limited conversation with a Japanese mother-daughter pair sitting at the next table. Enjoyable, relaxing and reasonably priced.

Arrived in Japan yesterday and popped into this little bakery to be very pleasantly surprised. Needed a quick bite before heading off to view the Cherry Blossom in the Inokashira Koen - a large park just minutes away. Missed the breakfast options by two minutes, so opted for the scone with earl grey tea. The warm Scone was exceptionally good with just right portion of butter and jam. The cakes selection was very impressive and of course tempting - the Victoria Cake especially caught my eye. Rose Bakery in Kichijoji is minutes from the station and has much more to offer than you would think.

Tip: if you're passing by Gion station late at night, do drop by this bakery and buy some cakes! They'll be selling off at clearance prices, but the taste is just as wonderful even on the next morning!

We grabbed some baked items, 5 grain with raisin, ham with cheese and European wiener for the subway trip. I was pleasantly surprised to also get warm green tea and coffee in sealed bottle/cans.

My boyfriend is a chef, and I'm a cook from Sydney. We were so pleasantly surprised by this bakery! The pastries are of top quality and also reasonably prised. Well done to the bakers, you have created a gem!
