There are a lot of people who love caramel and matcha dessert, but I have never met anyone who says, "I know a really good place that does it well."

For those who like desserts, I would gladly like to introduce Maman Gateau as the best matcha and caramel desserts ever.

Ordered all of the representative menus!

After arriving at the Maman Gateau, I observed closely what the other table guests were eating,

I found that caramel rollcakes were almost on every table!

I ordered caramel rollcake without hesitation.

The roll cakes of Maman Gateau was thick with a special caramel sauce.

In addition, the roll cake contains homemade cream mixed with caramel and nuts. The soft texture was very impressive.

When I visited Maman Gateau, even though it was during the winter season, it was a warm day. So I ordered shaved ice

While I was deciding between <Caramel Shaved Ice> and <Matcha Caramel Shaved Ice>,

I saw that the person in front of me ordering <Caramel Shaved Ice> so I decided to do the same.

The ice cream of Caramel Shaved Ice was such a luxurious taste that I knew immediately that it was sincerely handmade.

It was a taste of deep and pleasant sweetness.

Inside the Caramel Shaved Ice, nuts and caramel were mixed with cream-based condensed milk, and this created a rich taste.

Even though I don't have a photo of "Caramel Milk Tea", my friend ordered it to have a sip.

My friend gave me a short but strong comment - "The sweetness immediately makes me so recharged."

(By the way, Americano was really good, too.)

The interior of the store gave a feeling of stability with marble interior.

I also wanted to try one of the other desserts at a glance!

I would have ordered additional desserts if my stomach wasn't so full.
