    This patisserie/cafe in Omotesando is only a 3-minute walk from Omotesando station and offers a wide selection of ice cream, cakes, baked goods and fruit preserves. The special thing about the ice cream at GLACIEL is that everything is made on that day. The ice cream is made from milk brought from Hokkaido and fruits bought from the top class farmers every day.

    The owner, Yosuke Nakai, is a gelato meister who previously won third place in the 2011 World Gelato Competition in Italy. Sincerita was created with Yosuke’s desire to create a gelato shop that was easy to access for many people. Most gelato flavors are made using seasonal fruits and sweetened using honey, rather than sugar. The gelatos made here are very refreshing!

    LA VIEILLE FRANCE is a long-running cafe that originated in France in 1834 and is famous for their rich-flavored ice cream and various baked sweets. They make over 10 flavors of ice cream and the fruit flavors change according to the season. Also, if you order a double where you get the choice of two ice cream flavors, you can ask the shop keeper for their recommendation of the two flavors that go together best and they will be more than willing to help.


    4. Japanese Ice OUCA

    OUCA was founded with a vision of becoming an ice cream shop that is as close to the heart of Japanese people as the cherry blossom flower (sakura) is. This shop specializes in providing over 15 types of traditional Japanese ice cream flavors. Some of which are: milk, matcha, and soy powder & brown sugar syrup.

    5. Brigela

    The name, Brigela, originates from a combination of the two words, brioche, and gelato. Not only does Brigela sell standard gelato, they also specialize in a new type of dessert that is a combination of brioche bread and gelato.

    This new kind of dessert is available in many flavors such as vanilla, pistachio, caramel nut vanilla, coffee, dark chocolate, and many others. On top of their usual flavors, they have 6 flavors that change according to the season and the fruit available at the time of year.
