The Oyatsupan Bakery.

For a small price, customers may grab a tray and fill it up by choosing from a wall of snacks. They sell a variety of small baked goods that range from simple sweet rolls to decorated pieces with fruit and chocolate.

The store is exceptionally good-looking as it has large windows to let natural light in as well as a simple white colored aesthetic in its interior design. There is plenty of seating in the front of the store as well as the back to accommodate the customers who prefer to sit-in rather than take-out.

Curry Donut: SUPER AMAZING. The curry donut is a genius idea that consists of putting curry WITHIN a baked piece of bread. A curry calzone. How fantastic. The smooth curry was yummy and the crunchy bread flakes that sprinkled the soft bread created a wonderful contrasting experience when eaten. The curry pan is a 10/10 recommend a to-go snack for any place, anytime. 6/5

Oyatsupan has become the cornerstone of this small community.  Though this bakery has a smaller audience than what it deserves, the customers that do come are soon regulars within a short number of visits.

Matcha Pan: The texture of the roll is crunchy on the outside and spongy on the inside. Matcha flavor is not as strong as what you would expect from a matcha roll but the sweet flavor of the bread makes up for it. ⅗

The bakers at Oyatsupan create a variety of pastries that range from your average eclair to the curry donut. Whether you’re looking for a more comfortable pastry or something extravagant, Oyatuspan displays an array of choices that everyone can choose from.

Chocolate Horn: This was a simple sweet treat. It consisted of a unicorn horn shaped bread with a creamy chocolate filling. The chocolate was not very sweet which complimented the sweet bread. Also, extra points cause it has eyes! ⅘

Overall, the two of us will come back to try more of the different breads and other fun pastries.  The ambiance of the bakery is clean, spacious, and very modern.  If you’re looking to try some authentic Japanese bread and other Western delicacies, Oyatsupan is definitely worth a try!
