Pain Pati Bakery

My favorite bakery in Machida

I know Japan is absolutely full of great bakeries, but Pain Pati in Machida is my latest favorite. Their baked goodies are fantastic, and very reasonably priced.

An added bonus is that if you choose to enjoy your purchases on the attractive terrace outside the store, you can wash them down with a free cup of coffee!  They usually play Beatles John Lennon music in the background - which is fine with me. While you're at it, be on the look out for the cute cat bus that goes past here on weekdays!
