The long line is deceptive. It moves quickly as the variety of baked goods and sandwiches are selected. The two persons at the register are lightning fast making a dazzling show of their attention to each guest

This little bakery is conveniently located near the entrance to Kyoto train station. It has a variety of delicious pastries good for breakfast or lunch. There were hot dogs in cheese buns, fruit tarts, lemon cakes, croissants, and more. We ate here twice while staying in the area and were happy both times.

Basically this place adopts the same strategy where all baked goods are on display and you stroll along with a tray and tong to pick your items. They had the best selection of sandwiches however only make them after lunch time, which was a shame as we'd love to have them for breakfast. This is a good option if you... More

Shizuya was our go-to for breakfast in Kyoto: not big fans of miso soup and rice in the morning, we went there to buy donuts, croissants and other puff pastries. Everything we took was quite good (for a general shop in Japan, I mean) and not expensive. We highly recommend it if you need to grab a quick little meal!

We loved this place! The branch we visited (on Shijo Dori St i think) has a large selection of pastries/buns etc., a good variety to choose from for breakfast and then grab some more for morning/afternoon tea. They also have tables set up so you can take your time and eat in (though the coffee was average). However note that... More

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
