German Bakery in Tsukuba: Backerei Brõtzeit
Backerei Brõtzeit is a German bakery that is located near the University of Tsukuba. I found out about it through an ad on the TAIRA mailing list and thought that I would go and check it out. I was very happy to see that they had yummy, thick rye breads (made from 100% organic rye) with or without walnuts and raisins, various specialty breads covered in a variety of toppings such as cheese, mushrooms, and green soybean paste, and baguettes and other kinds of rolls. All of the breads I bought were tasty. If you are in the area, I recommend dropping by. The owner was happy to tell me about the composition of the breads and was even able to translate “sourdough” into French for the friend who came with me.
Go north from Tsuchiura Gakuen-sen on Higashi Odori until you reach the intersection with Aji no Mingei on your right and Cocos/El Torito on your left. Turn right at that intersection and follow the road past the first intersection. Backerei Brõtzeit is on your left. If you reach the park, you have gone too far.
Open from 7:00am – 6:00pm, most days. Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Address: Amakubo 2-10-20 (close to the University of Tsukuba)
