Some really nice bread but get here early as it sells out fast!


Super delicious bakery, using hand ground, organic flour from their own gardens. Bagles, cinnamon rolls, uniquely shaped baguettes. Near Shimagamo Jinja. Go early, because many items sell out quickly. My favorite bakery in Kyoto!


I arrived at the store after 1pm on a holiday, and there was a line. Some people came to buy by bicycle, while others came by car.
When I looked at the showcase on my first visit, there were no breads with various toppings, but only simple breads with single toppings, so it literally looked like a ``wheat store.'' I purchased the following two items.

⚫︎Bagel Noah (200 yen)
This bagel is made with strong flour and whole wheat flour, and the only topping is walnuts. With a simple bagel like this, you might want to spread cream cheese on it or add a side dish like salmon to give it a bit of an accent, but this bagel has none of that and makes you want to eat it as is. Although there is no filling mixed into the bagel, it is a bagel with a simple sweetness that makes you want to enjoy the bagel itself.

⚫︎Cinnamon roll (200 yen)
Similar to bagels, this is a simple bread made with only cinnamon sugar. Cinnamon sugar is a great complement to bread and is less sweet than regular cinnamon sugar. When I took a bite of this bread, I could immediately feel the quality of the ingredients, and I was impressed.
I wonder if there are cinnamon rolls like this.

Bread has a lot of meaning. Generally, restaurants with high reviews have a lot of creative ingredients, but I think it's rare to find something this simple.
It's far from the station, but it's right next to Shimogamo Shrine, so why not stop by? When I visited there were only locals, but I think it would be perfect for tourists as well as for breakfast the next day.
