Manseibashi Hofbackerei Edegger-Tax

Tokyoites have yet another European bakery to add to a rich list that includes Viron, Maison Kayser, Peck (exclusively at Takashimaya), and Gontran Cherrier. What makes this new shop unique is that I believe it is the first bakery in Tokyo from Austria. For German bakeries there is Linde in Kichijoji. (Musashino-shi, Kichijoji Honcho 1-11-27).

Hofbakerei Edegger-Tax is at the Manseibashi mall conveniently located between Kanda, Akihabara, and Ochanomizu. It is one of Austria’s oldest bakeries (1569), and fills a gap in the city for these European breads. Linde is a great shop, but Kichijoji is a hike out of the city center.

The shop opens at 8:30 a.m. on weekdays, and 11:00 a.m. on weekends. There is a lovely selection of bread, sandwiches, including open-faced sandwiches, and pastries. I’ve been to the original shop in Graz, Austria, and at the time, the most impressive memory was the colorful selection of open-faced sandwiches.

    Looks great Yukari. Thanks for this. BTW, I loved your recent piece in the JT about JP restaurants. When you have time check out Sakura Sakura in Akasaka–excellent and Hotaru in Roppongi and Azabu Juban. Best, N

    1. Thanks for these tips! You are the best!

  2. I love me some Gontran Cherrier 🙂 I always go in to pick something up if I’m near one!

  3. Delicious! Love that he has shops throughout the city. Best of all, as a Parisian/French he understands the importance of opening early in the day. Too bad only a few open so early in the day.
