No vegan marking on the menu

Unfortunately they must have changed their menus and decided not to keep the marks that show which items are vegan. I checked online and was able to find a menu with marks, and even so there were extremely limited options. I ended up getting the avocado toast and it was unfortunately mediocre. I don’t think this restaurant should even be on HC anymore.

Pros: Nice outdoor seating

Cons: No vegan marks on menu, Limited options

Delicious vegan breakfast option

Beautiful little bakery cafe with plenty of vegan options which are noted clearly on the menu, I ordered the roasted vegetables on toast which came with hummus and a delicious tahini/spirulina sauce. Would definitely recommend for a nice comforting way to start the day, especially as there are limited early morning breakfast options for vegans in Tokyo!

Pros: Friendly staff, Comforting and peaceful atmosphere , English menu

Nice savoury food

You can tell as soon as you walk in that it's a bit upper class, therefore a bit expensive. But it's well worth it to actually be able to eat hummus and bread in Japan! Food was good, several options on each the appetiser menu and main. Even a dessert option or two. 100% will come back here.

Pros: Easy to find vegan options on normal menu, Vegan bread!!!, Pleasant atmosphere

Cons: A bit pricy

Cons: Caro, Porciones chicas

Nice, hearty bread

It can be a bit difficult to find hearty, savoury bread in Tokyo (supermarkets and convenience stores usually only have sweet white breads), so if you’re looking for some nutty, brown bread, Le Pain is the place to go. Some of the meals are a bit expensive, but all of the bakery items are reasonably priced. And I recommend the Speculaas spread, it is absolutely delicious!!

Big portions

I think they are underrated! They have lots of vegan options for a café in japan. Avocado toast, hummus toast with grilled veggies, chia pudding, hummus plate,... to name a few. Soymilk for beverages (matcha latte, cappuccino,...) and the toasts a giant! Good value!

A handful of great vegan options - denoted by carrot sign on menu - including avocado toast, roast vegetable toast, hazelnut flute pastry and quinoa salad. Soy milk coffees available too.

Pros: Good vegan options

Not as good as Le Pain in other countries

This Le Pain was OK, they have of course a lot of vegetarian bread products and sweets, but also a great deal with meat. I didn't see any of the vegan rolls or cakes I usually do at my local Le Pains.

Finding bead products is pretty easy in Japan anyway, but I was interested in the fare I'm familiar with from the Le Pains in California, New York, and London which include avocado tartines, lentil and tomato soup, fruit and quinoa bowls, etc.

While they did have the same array of coffees drinks available, there wasn't much fresh fruit anywhere and what they did have was incredibly expensive (a parfait was nearly double the price it usually is). They had about one veggie option per menu category, which I've included a photo of.

Overall I understand getting fresh produce in Japan will be expensive, but it was still disappointing to see familiar items either missing or raised in price.

Pros: there are a lot of pastry options, familiar coffee selection

Cons: much more expensive than usual , far fewer main course and side options
