Beaver Bread Brothers in Toranomon

Excellent Japanese bakery in Toranomon Hills Station Tower

Beaver Bread Brothers is a wonderful Japanese bakery located on the B2 level of Toranomon Hills Station Tower. It is one of many restaurants in the International T-Market food hall. The new Toranomon complexes including Azabudai Hills have brought many well known Tokyo restaurants from across the city into this developing neighborhood, giving interested diners easier access to great food located in incredible modern spaces.

This store is a branch of the original Beaver Bread in Higashi-Nihonbashi. Beaver Bread opened in 2017 and the chef Kenichi Warita trained at the legendary Bigot French bakery as well as worked at a French restaurant in Ginza. The bakery serves an incredible variety of Japanese breads including scones, salt rolls, excellent curry pan, a mentaiko sourdough roll, and Shokupan to go. French style pastries including croissants, pain au chocolat and caneles are also available. Everything is freshly baked and the aroma of bread is intoxicating as you walk into the store. There are also light sandwiches and sourdough loaves as well as house made jams and spreads. Light snacks like yogurt and charcuterie are also available. Interesting drinks include bottled raisin juice and wine or whiskey in the evening.

Hours are from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and the store is closed on Sundays. The store space is inviting and the Toranomon Hills store was not unusually crowded in the morning, whereas the Nihonbashi store reportedly often requires some wait time. An unusual feature is the public seating in the airy atrium space of T-Market to enjoy goods purchased from the store. The bakery makes a great rest stop from traveling around the Toranomon area and nearby Azabudai Hills or a good breakfast choice before heading out on the subway. It is easily accessible from the Toranomon Hills Station stop on the Hibiya Line.
