Coffee starts my day right. But it would be really nice if I can pair it with bread or donuts. This pair is the perfect start to a long week of work and I’m sure that anything good, delicious, bright and colorful would make mornings perfect…things that this shop offer.
Love Sweets Antique is a donut shop at the junction of Aoyama Dori and Omotesando (exit B3 or A5 to avoid traffic lights). Unlike other donuts, these are stone cold (stored in refrigerator) and have a thick, slightly creamy textured topping with a light sponge underneath. They come in 8 flavours – peach, melon, orange, matcha, mango, blueberry, strawberry and chocolate – and are light, refreshing, sophisticated and exquisite. I had the mango one which was like mango pudding – full of flavour and delicious. The shop front extends 20 feet up the wall and the interior (though no seating area) has cute ceramic rabbits surrounded by multi-coloured donuts plus the endearing donut chandeliers.
Whether or not you’re a fan of sweet food, seeing this shop’s vibrant colors and mouthwatering sweets and bread would definitely make you crave for sugar. Website in Japanese only www.heart-bread.com
