They have a big & beautiful place, ground floor is the souvenir area, you can buy a lot of different snack. And the staff are really helpful & nice.

On the upstairs is for the cafe, they have sweet and savoury menu. Me and my friends tried cake & soft cream puff (forgot the name). They really delicious with the worth-pay prices.

Very popular French style bakery for a reason. Fantastic range of products and worth marginally higher prices than most bakeries in Japan. The “shuu cream” pastries are the most popular and a fast seller at Hokkaido fairs on the rare occasion these are available in other prefectures. It is best tried fresh from the main store. Nice range of gifts in the store downstairs but I really recommend taking the time to enjoy the café upstairs. Nice atmosphere surrounded by books and a renovated interior of the historic building. I really enjoyed the parfait and my friends had the great value cake and drink set. It is best to go early as some menu items had sold out when we visited later in the day.

This beautiful building houses the original branch of the Kitakaro brand.

The first floor is free to enter, and contains a souvenir shop and take-out sweets, like their famous cream puffs, freshly made, and soft-serve ice cream. Many of the sweets sold as souvenirs are only available to purchase here.

The second floor is a large cafe, where you can sit down and enjoy hot drinks and a variety of Kitakaro sweets. The towering bookcases make for a lovely library feel.

Wonderful Yubari Melon Soft Cream in Sapporo with contemporary Japanese surrounding. Variety of dessert are provided in this store as well. You can also visit Hokkaido Former Government House in the same route to Kitakaro.

What drew me to this place is the architecture, designed by none other than Tadao Ando. Well worth a visit if you happen to be in Sapporo. Their famous cream puff is unfortunately quite ordinary though IMHO...
