All items on the menu are made fresh in-house every day, all ingredients from the salt and sugar to the eggs and more are domestic, and all ingredients are sourced sustainably and locally. The bakery also caters to all needs from those with food restrictions and allergies as well as a fantastic vegan menu which replaces animal products like eggs and butter with soy milk and grapeseed oil.
They even sell American-style doughnuts from the doughnut brand GOOD TOWN DOUGHNUTS who are inspired by doughnuts from Brooklyn.

One worry in the bakery industry is that of leftover stock. But The Little BAKERY Tokyo has a solution for that: by wrapping up their pastries and baked foods and selling them as ‘DAY OLD BREAD’ on their online shop so nothing goes to waste, something which has received huge praise from people across Japan.
