The weekend cake lasts one week. The taste is a bit citrus flavor, simple but sophisticated:)
The original place is is Todoroki! I will try the original store as well.


This is a highly rated French pastry shop. I came here to celebrate my friend's new house. Since it was a holiday, I arrived a little before the store opened at 10:30, expecting it to be crowded. The store had just opened, so I didn't have to wait that long, but there were quite a few people in line when I left. If you have an item you want, we recommend that you visit the store early.

This time, I ordered two cakes: "Petit fours sec (small): 3,801 yen" and "Dumi sec (12 pieces): 1,721 yen."

The expiry date for petit four sec is about 3 weeks at room temperature, and for demi-sec it is about 1 week at room temperature.
The cake was different from the mainstream cakes and had a taste that I have never had before. I think I can recommend it as a gift.

The main store is closed on Wednesdays, so the number of items available is limited. I would like to visit the main store someday.
It was a feast.
