There are 2-3 le tao shops along otaru sakaimachi road, n they hand out samples to try. they have cafes inside if you want to sit n rest, of course buy their puffs/cakes/coffee etc.... More

Good Chocolate Shop but not much variety. They sell Chocolate Fromage cake similar to their Double Fromage Cheesecake but I prefer fir the latter @ the Original Le Tao Shop

LeTAO is definitely one of the main sweets store in Otaru. It's been here for years and they have taken over many locations. Beware the cakes are really rich in flavor

After walking for awhile around in Otaru, it was really a nice treat for afternoon tea. The tea served in pot was fragrant and the cheesecake melts. Though rather pricey, it is value for quality and freshness. Service was quick and polite except waiting time for 30 minutes during peak times. While waiting, one can hop downstairs to have a...

The most soft and sweet cheese cake I ever had. Unfortunately for people can not come to test here because it must be eaten by 24 hrs for the best test.
