Little macrobiotic cafe with health food store downstairs. Limited menu, lots of drinks. Try the pita sandwich set, costs around 1000yen. Lunch only served until 14.30, after that desserts and drinks only. Directions: From Peace Park on Heiwa-Odori, go west away from downtown and Hiroshima Station, over two bridges, after the second bridge, turn left at the third traffic light (there's a video store on far left corner). Restaurant is on the right side of road from there in between a post office and a gas station. Address in Japanese: 広島県広島市西区西観音町18-4. APR 2015 REPORTED SHUT BY COW MEMBER. Price: Moderate more-less

restaurant has moved

We went on a 20 minute walk in the rain to the address listed to find the restaurant has relocated. Poor customer service in not updating the address on happycow. We went to Otis instead which was great.

Maison de Croissant is a terrific little health food store / restaurant with a daily set menu. The lunch we had was very flavorful, the portions just right, and the staff friendly and helpful. It's a little out of the main touristy area of Hiroshima, but well worth the 15 minute walk.

Pros: Tasty set menu, Lovely atmosphere, Friendly Staff

Lunch now being served next door.

Posted on 10 / 14 / 2012

Since September, Maison de croissant has been serving lunch in the vegan friendly market next door, Croissant Ichiba. Lunch hours are 11:30a.m. - 2:30p.m. The menu changes every week.
Croissant Ichiba sells lots of produce and food stuffs. Boxed lunches and rice balls are also sold. If you arrive outside of the lunch hours, you can buy something from the store and eat it in the cafe area.
Croissant Ichiba is open from 10:00am - 7:00p.m.

Pros: Delicious, Vegan, Merchandise
Cons: Japanese writing only., Limited menu.


so good.

The directions were perfect, and we ran to make it there by 2:30.
Even though we were a minute late, they happily sat us and were very kind.
English wasn't spoken much, and no english on the menu, but they understood vegan and took care of it. Highly recommended.

Pros: good food, nice place
Cons: only open till 2:30

Delicious and well presented

I can only speak for the "Macrobiotic Lunch Set", but both times I've had it, it's been delicious. There are other options on the menu, all vegetarian (I've never seen fish either, but their menu changes every visit). The set meal comes presented in multiple square wooden "boxes", which you unstack and uncover a beautiful arrangement of colorful and very healthy food. The store downstairs is also one of a very few places in Hiroshima where you can find macrobiotic cooking ingredients.

**It's important to keep in mind that even though they're open until 1830, they only serve meals until 1430.** After 1430 they serve drinks and the dessert menu. And I'd recommend a reservation on Saturdays as last time I saw many people turned away because it was full.

To get there: From the Peace Park on Heiwa-Odori, go west (away from downtown and Hiroshima Station) over two bridges, after the second bridge, turn left at the third traffic light (as of July 2007 there's a Video King store on the far left corner). It's on the right side of the road from there in between a post office and a gas station.

Pros: delicious, healthy, no refined sugars
Cons: no dinner served, closed Sundays
