I've written about Malebranche of Kyoto a few times previously and to date, I still think of it as a befitting representation of modern Kyoto sweets (not Tsujiri). As with the ever-changing sweets market business, Malebranche has renewed its shop at Kyoto Station Porta and Kyoto Tower with new items that are exclusively available only at those two locations.

Even Pierre Herme dropped by this shop twice, how could I have given this a miss?
Compared to Tokyo, Kyoto seemed to have fewer cake boutiques and dominated by more standalone cafes. But this doesn’t mean that there are no worthy ones around. Grains de Vanille has been on my list for the longest time because the cakes stood out amongst other competitors like Patisserie S and Grenier de Au.

I knew this shop was right besides Kite X Kite but I never thought it was selling giant sandwiches. I only saw some cold deli remaining in the fridge when I dropped by in the late afternoon few years ago. And never would I expect it to house such a cosy eat-in area on the 2F.
