Driving through the Tsukiura area of Toyako, one will invariably notice a beautiful house with a scenic view of Lake Toya that is straight out of the fairy tales. Lucky for us, this house isn’t just home to a very talented family, but is actually a bakery cafe offering tasty and healthy organic food and drinks.
Upon walking into Gauche Bakery and Cafe, you will notice that the natural wood constructed interior is just as calmingly beautiful as the lake view outside. What makes it all the more inspiring is the fact that this house was actually hand built by it’s owner and a few friends. Not only is the warm sunlit interior cozy, but upon closer inspection, the attention to quality and details become apparent. In fact, local builders has been known to stop by to admire the workmanship and design.
Food wise, the owner applies the same attention to quality and detail. After sampling numerous options, only the ingredients that meet the owner’s high standard are selected to become part of the menu and baked goods. On the menu is also a number of organic teas and coffees. In additional to bread and other baked good, Gauche also serve light lunches using local organic produce.
