The top 15 Japanese bakeries in Toronto

Japanese bakeries can be found all over Toronto. It's great news if you're craving delicate crepe cakes, roll cakes, creme puffs, spongy cheesecakes, or sweet buns.

Here are my picks for the top Japanese bakeries in Toronto.

This chain specializing in Japanese style cheesecakes originated in Fukuoka and has since spread out across the globe landing in Toronto. Characterized by its light, fluffy, soufflé-like texture, these cheesecakes attract crowds, and are sold alongside madeleines.

Millie Patisserie & Creamery

This Japanese dessert house in the Fashion District offers a lovely assortment of thinly layered crepe cakes by the slice along with puddings, black sesame tarts, matcha azuki cake, cheesecakes, gelato-stuffed creme puffs and more.
