A patisserie hidden on the alleys of Kyoto close to Fuya-cho Street
There is a saying in Kyoto: “The greatest places in Kyoto are hidden in the alleys” and Pâtisserie salon de thé m.s.h proves this saying to be true. Everything at the cake shop is handmade, from their seasonal cakes which use fruit to their more classic products.
They always have around 15 types of cakes in the showcase. In the evening many of their cakes will be sold out, so you can see that the cake shop is well-liked by the locals.
If you want to go to the café, you’ll first have to go through a white door to enter the alley its located in, and then when you walk forward in the alley, you’ll get to see the café and its terrace seats, which when I went to the shop were bathing in warm afternoon sunlight. The shop is in a renovated Kyoto townhouse with a white color scheme, so inside it’s very bright. You can buy the cakes to go, but it may be an even better idea to enjoy them at the shop with a cup of tea or coffee. If the weather is nice, I recommend taking it easy on the terrace.
