Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 August 2018

The ladies that run this lovely, homely place are so friendly and welcoming and will happily chat to you and give you tips and maps on places to go, things to do. They make you feel right at home. The pizzas are delicious and the desserts by the French trained chef are absolutely divine- some are his own special creations. The shop also has lots of little trinkets to buy and freshly baked bread. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Will definitely go back each time we're in Hakuba.

Tasty pizza in one of the coziest shops in Hakuba. Spend an afternoon there or take away. Lots of breads and cakes to choose.

Mon Pigeon is definitely our favourite place to visit in Hakuba, for a number of reasons - the wood-fired pizza is the best, the patisserie treats are delicious, the ladies are so lovely and the atmosphere is inviting and relaxed. We recommend this place to everyone who visits Hakuba.

Mon Pigeon is run by two Japanese sisters (the beautiful patisserie treats are made by Misao's husband who has trained in France) who are really kind and helpful. They have given us many recommendations, taught us some Japanese and even helped with booking train tickets.

The menu consists of wood-fired pizza, calzone, and a few other things for lunch and dinner. And of course there are the cakes - a whole fridge full of delicious French desserts, as well as bakery goods - bread, sandwiches etc. They also offer breakfast - the egg & bacon roll is tasty! You can taste the love and care that has gone into the food.

They also sell homemade jam and other bits and pieces.

Mon Pigeon feels really cosy with all the decor - so much to look at and it feels so homely and inviting. We have seen a review mentioning the cleanliness but before reading that review we have always thought it feels so clean!

We highly recommend Mon Pigeon, it's a highlight every time we visit Hakuba.

Tonight we went out for pizzas with 5 guys. All the reviews we read were very positive and they were not wrong...

The ladies who run this restaurant are so lovely and nothing is a trouble. We were discussing our travel plans and the owner then printed out all the local attractions, bus and train timetables to help us out. Fantastic service and speak English very well.

The shop very quirky but it only adds to the charm. Don’t let the fact that animals are inside scar you away as you will only be missing out on a great night out. This place was extreme clean and the animals were so well kept, loved and clean.

All desserts are made fresh daily by the owner who was a pastry chef in France.

Pizzas are too notch!!!

We all left with big smiles and a couple of kg’s heavier. ☕️

Walking in reminded me of walking into my Granny’s home. Nick-nacks of all assortments aligned every wall.. “a little piece of home” was my first impression. Next impression was was the management, we were greeted by Cinnamon, tail wagging and panting. The pizza (New York style) was perfect and hit the hungry spot!! So many reviews criticised the weight of the dogs, but all we saw was very LOVED and cared for dogs and cats. Opinions sometimes should be seen/read for other reasons than their personal interests. Would we go back... YES, and we did TWICE!!
