!! ''Antique Bakery'' contains examples of:
* AllGaysArePromiscuous: Ono, because of his "demonic gay charm".
* AuthorAppeal: If you read Fumi Yoshinaga's various manga series, you realize that she REALLY likes [[{{Bishonen}} pretty boys]] and [[FoodPorn food]]
* BadDreams: These usually lead to Tachibana's [[CatapultNightmare Catapult Nigtmares]].
* BastardBoyfriend: Jean, though he gets better.
* BattleAura: Cake-baking is SeriousBusiness, isn't it, [[HotBlooded Kanda]]?
* BespectacledBastardBoyfriend: Ono, when he's seducing. Ono!
* BlueWithShock
* CastFullOfPrettyBoys
* ColourFailure
* TheDitz: Chikage.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Ono has a reputation as a "Gay of Demonic Charm," and has been fired multiple times for (sometimes accidentally) charming his straight coworkers and bosses.
* FacePalm: Tachibana a couple of times. Also, Akugawa in episode 10.
* FoodPorn
* FrenchCuisineIsHaughty: The titular cake shop has a menu entirely in French to evoke this idea, the head pâtissière learned his trade and title in France, and the apprentice goes to France for advanced cuisine instruction. The waitstaff, thankfully, don't manage the snooty part of the stereotype.
* FrenchJerk: Jean.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:It's implied that Tachibana was molested by the kidnapper when he was a kid, leading to his harsh rejection of Ono's feelings later.]]
* GenreShift: A very subtle one, but at the end of the series ''Antique Bakery'' gets some detective/thriller-ish overtones as the police begins to believe that the same man who kidnapped Tachibana when he was a kid has resurfaced and is now kidnapping and killing kids, while also buying cakes from Antique. [[spoiler: turns out it's another person entirely]]
* TheGlassesComeOff: Chikage when [[spoiler:he stops Jean from breaking Ono's fingers]]. Also counts as his CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* {{Hikkikomori}}: the [[spoiler: second]] kidnapper/molester
* HotBlooded: Kanda.
* HotterAndSexier: ''Antique Bakery dj'' by Yoshinaga herself.
* ManlyTears: Chikage a couple of times.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Deko.
* PunnyName: Chikage; "kage" meaning shadow, the joke being that he follows Tachibana everywhere. It's actually how he introduces himself to Ono and Eiji.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler:Jean when he snaps at Ono and even Tachibana in his flashbacks and in episode 11.]]
* RunningGag: Chikage hitting his head on doorframes.
* SpitTake: Tachibana in episode 10.
* SunglassesAtNight: Chikage, who wears them because of his light-sensitive eyes. {{Lampshaded}} by Ono.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: In episode 6, when [[spoiler:Tachibana offers to sleep with Ono to prevent him from going back to France]], a waitress happens to pass by, stops for a moment and ''walks away like nothing happened''.
