The motto of Patisserie Hidemi Sugino states that "You won't find our pastries anywhere else;" a brave promise in light of the hundreds of high-class, highly inventive patisseries scattered around Tokyo.

The patisserie specializes in mousse cakes, in a variety of flavors that are usually seasonal and the deceptively simple appearance of the pastries melt away to reveal layers of flavor within. This is a must-stop for any dessert lover; just be prepared to wait for your turn to try the unique confections.
