Some say the Japanese bake better croissants than the French. I'm inclined to agree. It's even better when they wrap that croissant around a delicious stick of chocolate! Witness the Choco Cro divine confection. We chanced upon this in the Teramachi covered shopping alley in Kyoto, although it's a Harajuku chain.
There are two flavours. This is the regular or original chocolate croissant (about ¥137) in orange paper cone.
This is the banana chocolate version, dressed in a yellow paper cone (maybe about ¥160, can't remember). I personally preferred this over the regular chocolate.
They also have savoury items, like this scrumptious curry bun. We didn't try the pizza slices.
And here's another delicious pastry. You know, we originally stopped at this cafe for a short break and a light, pre-dinner snack. But I think we piled on like a bazillion calories with these sinful pastries!
This is the Shibuya storefront, which we saw much later on.
