St. Marc Cafe was first opened by founders Naoyuki Katayama and Ritsuko Fuji in Ginza, Tokyo almost 3 decades ago. It is now renowned throughout Japan forthe Chococro which features more than 20 layers of buttery croissant dough wrapped around a dark chocolate centre made from the finest cocoa beans from Ghana and Ecuador.
The Chococro is unique because of the texture of the pastry itself. Founder Naoyuki Katayama discovered it by accident one day after skipping the fermentation process when making the croissant dough, resulting in a pastry that is denser and richer and creating one of St. Marc Cafe’s bestsellers to date.
St. Marc Cafe is also known for its soft-serve ice cream desserts, which are infused with traditional Japanese flavours and ingredients and are a hit with children and adults alike. Customers can also enjoy a wide range of parfait desserts.
The cafe’s open kitchen concept allows customers to see how the pastries are made as well as to enjoy the aroma of freshly baked goods.
