｛Out and about ｝Patisserie Nakano is one of our favourite neighbourhood hang-outs and our go-to place for macaroons. Just across the street from our studio, this charming little pastry shop never fails to impress us with their out-of-this-world pastry. In case you're wondering, the head pastry chef had learned his craft in Japan and later went on to further his studies in France, hence the name. (Nakano is a district in Tokyo,and patisserie means pastry shop in French.) Despite being very popular amongst the locals, (there is literally never a quiet moment in the shop every time we visit.) the shop manages to adhere to its artisanal roots in that everything is made on premise using the freshest,seasonal ingredients. (no canned fruit in their pastries) and they only make a small batch each day to maintain the consistency and the quality of their products. Store is open from mid-day to 8:30, but things get sold out very quickly, so be sure to stop by early in the day !!
