16ku Description

16ku stands out as one of the top dessert destinations in Fukuoka. Located near Josui Street, which holds memories reminiscent of the 16th arrondissement of French Confectionery, this establishment captures the essence of nostalgia. The founder fondly recalls childhood memories on this very street - sliding down its slopes with sunlight filtering through trees, creating a picturesque memory that has been etched in the heart. This connection to the locale inspired the desire to set up a patisserie in this cherished vicinity once they became a skilled artisan.
Desserts at 16ku are created with a steadfast commitment to authenticity and simplicity. Rather than chasing trends or adding unnecessary embellishments, the focus remains on crafting sweets that prioritize taste above all else. This dedication is evident in their sourcing practices as well. By directly contracting with farmers for fruit cultivation and custom-ordering specific ingredients from manufacturers, 16ku ensures the use of only the freshest and finest components in their offerings. No compromises are made in this relentless pursuit of quality.
Upon entering the store, customers are welcomed with the inviting aroma of freshly baked treats and the genuine warmth of the staff's greetings. The vibrant display of sweets in the showcase is a visual treat. With an oven continually churning out delicacies on the opposite side of the showcase, there's a palpable sense of energy and dedication that emanates from Mishima and the entire team.
Designed with a counter style, 16ku offers patrons a unique experience to savor their cakes effortlessly. For those interested in exploring more, the cafe corner on the second floor frequently features special monthly menus, further enhancing the gastronomic journey.

Extremely recommended. They are specialty in French desserts, best of the best in Fukuoka


Translated from Japanese:
Long-established French pastry shop 16 districts.
I had some errands at Yakuin, and when I looked up nearby shops, this was a hit. It looks like a popular restaurant. I'm looking forward to the Fukuoka expedition.
When I arrived, the store was bustling with customers. As expected. The uniforms of the staff look like high-end department store clerks♪It's branded.
3 kinds of cake. Don't forget Duckworth. I was attracted to blueberry pie, but I'm looking forward to the next cabaret over.
Duckworth, a taste that becomes addictive when you eat one or two. It was great to visit the 16th arrondissement. I also got three cakes. My favorite Fukuoka expedition, good memories have been added. Thanks


Translated from Japanese:
This is a shop I definitely wanted to visit when I came to Fukuoka, and I visited it for the dacquoise and marron pie.
The dacquoise was delicious, but the marron pie was shocking.
I rebaked it the next day and it was crispy, moist, and the natural sweetness of the big chestnuts was amazing.
It lasts a long time and I regret that I should have bought more.
The staff member whose name tag read 'Practice' was very polite.
Since it is a popular store, it may take some time, but I appreciate the explanation of the shelf life and the careful packaging.
I will definitely visit again.
