About Bakery Cafe Donguri

Bakery Cafe Donguri, initially established as a coffee store in 1983, has grown into a beloved bakery in Sapporo, known for its bread, side dishes, and salads offered at affordable prices.

Currently, Donguri operates 10 stores within Sapporo, with seven of these featuring cafe spaces where customers can dine in, while the remaining outlets focus on takeaways​​.

The name “Donguri,” meaning “acorn” in Japanese, was inspired by a large oak tree situated in front of their original store in the Maruyama area of Sapporo. The bakery gained popularity through its signature product, chikuwa bread, marking its evolution from a coffee shop to a cherished bakery​
