I am a bread lover.  I can live on bread.  I don’t know many good bakeries on the island.  There is a post on a bakery in Yomitan area on this blog.  I would love to go up there to buy some pastries, but having a little one doesn’t allow me to explore all the way up there for that.  Zazou, on the other hand, is right by my place!  It is right by the Kadena Air Base Gate 2.

It has some yummy pastries and bread that I love.  There is a small counter with 3 chairs in the back where you can order some food.  They, however, do not welcome little kids just because of the limited space.  It is really tight back there.  I was surprised to see the sign, but I kind of understand.

Here are a few photo of some pastries.  Yum yum!



Leave Kadena Air Base Gate 2 and drive on the bridge that runs over the highway.  You’ll see China Pete on your left.  Zazou Bakery is on the Gate 2 Street and will be on your left after one stop light from China Pete before H.I.S. Travel.  Zazou has a designated parking lot behind the building.


  1. I’ve found this Bakery by accident, and it was the best accident I had. I tried to clean off the shelves every day while I was in Okinawa a couple of year’s ago. Man I have to say it took me back to Paris France, and can’t wait to come back to eat more. If you haven’t eaten here you don’t know what your missing.

  2. This place has the best baguettes on earth. really! Go in the afternoon when they are fresh and hot and be amazed. They will reserve some for you if you get there to late so plan ahead for the next time you are cooking italian. Ours usually dont make it home…they are all gone just by having a little taste over and over and over…..

  3. My husband & I found the store yesterday. We have passed it several times since being stationed here on the island. The donut on a stick was very good.
    However, I didn’t notice that the signs says “no children”. We won’t be visiting there too much then because we alwqays have the boys with us when we stroll down gate 2 shopping area.

  4. Just ate there today and it was yummy to my tummy. Had ham/cheese sandwich with some hot tea and even treated myself to a little cheesecake (hey, I finally finished my holiday shopping–I deserve it). The dining in space really is extremely small. I can barely stretch my arms across width wise and touch each side (and I’m a short person). On a side note, they do take dollars along with yen. Thanks for the post!
