3. Toshi Yoroizuka
THEOBROMA is a handmade chocolate specialty shop in Tomigaya. While they focus on chocolate, they also have cake and baked sweets, as well as light meals that you can have in their cafe area.
Along with truffles, they have plenty of chocolates you can only find here. For example, their Caviar (1,728 JPY (incl. tax)) makes high-class French couverture chocolate look like caviar and serves it in a cute can. They also have chocolates using Japanese ingredients like shochu (distilled liquor) and yuzu (seasonally limited). This is definitely one stop for chocoholics.
5. a tes souhaits!
A tes souhaits! is a western sweets take-out specialty shop in Kichijoji started by an owner-chef inspired by French sweets who wanted to offer specially created cakes and breads. All of their cakes are highly acclaimed, but among them their oblong, distinguished Mont Blanc (620 JPY) is so popular it often sells out in the morning. It's a luxurious item that uses both Japanese and western chestnuts. It's only available from mid-September to mid-May, so it's something that visitors during that period should definitely check out.
