We saw the queue and smelled the aroma while going through Hakata station. We queued up and got the standard and chocolate mini croissants - 1 portion has about 3 pieces. They were delicious; for me, I prefer the chocolate croissants.
As soon as you enter Hakata Station, you smell bread baking and when you follow where it originates, you are led to this store which always has a long line of buyers. My favorite is the one with Mentaiko. My grandchildren’s favorite is the chocolate...croissants.More
The smell of croissants from the shop permeates through the station as you walk closer to it, just across from Seattle coffee. 100g for about 200 yen, there’s original, chocolate and sweet potato varieties. All are rather sweet unlike buttery French Melt in your mouth...croissants I was expecting. More customised to local tastes.More
The smell of bread being baked as you enter Hakata Station will lead you to Il Forno Del Mignon where there are long lines waiting to buy freshly baked croissants. My favorite is the one with Mentaiko but my grandchildren loved the chocolate ones. Everyday,...while we were in Fukuoka, we lined up for our days supply of croissants. We even took home some so other members of our family can sample it.More
I read about this place before going and thought it would be overrated, but the smell draws you in. It’s cheap and super delicious. I ended up buying bread there every time I was at the station. Don’t be scared of the line because you...the staff there have everything automatic. Longest I waited was not even a full minute and the line was long. It’s nothing special, but yet it’s totally satisfying. Cheap and worth it! I recommend eating the croissants hot or warm.More
As our hotel is near the Hakata station we spend a lot of time around the area, or walking through the station. It was the queue that got our interest piqued and we went to investigate why people were queuing up. The queue goes on...the whole day, morning, afternoon and even; at 9:30 pm there was still a very Long queue.
We decided to try the croissants to see for ourselves if they were that amazing. The lady ahead of us told us there are three flavours- plain, chocolate and sweet potatoes.
We tried all three flavours and it is up to the individual tastes. I liked the sweet potatoes version, and a friend preferred chocolate while yet another said the plain version was best. We did agree in unison we didn’t understand the queue and the excitement. Perhaps it is open Long hours and located at the station so it is easy for people to purchase and take home. Also the very reasonable price could be an attraction.More
Many bakeries make croissants in Japan but this little cubicle inside the station of Hakata smells of sweet sugar and caramel. Try the sweet potato croissants and don't get scared by Q: the staff are fast to bag your treats. Sales after 8pm when a...bag of croissants sell for 40%less circa.More
We passed this outlet a number of times at the station and always wondered what was the deal with the long waiting lines. The place serves 3 different types of small croissants - plain, chocolate and sweet potato (from the other posts apparently this flavour...varies by the day). You by them in bulk, weigh them and then pay. They were OK but to our taste was a bit dry. It’s a nice snack but wouldn’t line up for a long time just to eat them.More
