Semi-vegan bakery

Couscous Oven and Hoppers cakes and cookies bakery (July 2017),
Address: Chuo-ku, Minami 3 Nishi 26 chome 2-23 Mominoki SO 1F,

Hours: 11.00-18.00 Apr-Sep, 11.00-17.00 Oct-Mar

This is a little bakery in a lane off a lane off a main street. A little tricky to find from where we approached it but quite easy from Maruyama Koen station. Directions from the station are:
Leave the subway station by the eastern-most exit and walk east (away from Maruyama Park and hill) along Odori dori to the first major intersection. Turn right and walk through the next major intersection (which is the junction of blocks south 1 west 24, south 1 west 25, south 2 west 24 and south 2 west 25). Walk a little further until you come to a lane on the right (there is a shop with a big sign saying ‘The Fruitscake Factory’ opposite this lane). Walk 100m west (towards Maruyama Park) along the lane, crossing one other lane and a pedestrian and bicycle way before veering a little to the left. At this point, a café called Café Mori Hiko is straight ahead. Couscous Oven and Hoppers is 40m down a little side lane almost opposite Café Mori Hiko.

Many of the cookies and scones are suitable for vegans, not using butter or milk or eggs. They are baked on the premises. Some items are a little dry (but that was a welcome change from the generally moist food prevalent here) but that made them crunchy. The fruit square was moist and full of fruit. Worth a visit if you are in the area and have a sweet tooth.

Pros: reasonable selection, range of dry and moist baked items

Cons: just a little tricky to find, not cheap, but not exorbitant
