They are a couple from Japan, Hinako und Michitoshi. They learned everything about bread here in Germany and they make fantastic bread and cake, actually one of the best French baguettes I know. When you enter the little shop, the smell makes you dream. The bakery, the shop and you are all in the same room – you see him working on the loafs and her selling what they produce.
And they are very serious about what they do. So what’s the problem? Well … some people call it unfriendly, which it isn’t at all, some call it cold, which it can’t be because there is a big oven. But it is serious, yes, there is a whisper of “to be honest you don’t take us seriously enough” in there. I don’t mind, but some people do. I buy their fantastic baked goods and bring them home or take it to friends and everybody is happy.
