Patisserie Coco Ange, which opened in Tokyo’s Roppongi district last November, showcases the creations of chef Masayuki Nakagawa, who trained in France. Each pastry and cake is a work of art in itself, and, as the shop name suggests, looks as it were crafted by the hands of an angel. Try the espoir (¥640), a beautiful creation made of Sévarome pistachio mousse with a passion-fruit jelly center, topped with a gold flake. Take your treat home or enjoy it at Sakura Cafe next door. 21 Roppongi Bldg. 1F, 6-1-12 Roppongi, Minato-ku, Tokyo; 03-5411-2525; www.coco-ange.net).
