Because of such a severe cold weather, my body became like ice while viewing Goryokaku, so I wanted to have sweets and tea in a warm room and I walked toward Rokkatei (六花亭) inside the garden. Though I knew this existence, I was surprised at such a good location. But I was truthfully disappointed !
It’s not inside the garden. And there’s no door facing the garden !
There’s a door only along the road. And more, it’s difficult to find the door… 🙁
Promenade to the entrance along the building is hidden by trees.
This branch is large. Goryokaku garden can be seen from out of the wide window. Beautiful. About 2/3 of the house is occupied by the store that have a variety of Rokkatei products. Only I knew some products. They have various products ! Many products can be bought from one piece. So, I tried much sweets. There’s cakes in the refrigerator close to the window.
And the cafe area is along the road. Water is free to take. The intervals of the tables are wide, so I could enjoy coffee break slowly.
Though coffee was free until 2018, now it cost us 300 yen. But free refills.
There’s cake and another sweets confectionery mainly on the menu, but they also serve meals. And also we can eat Yukikon Cheese (雪こんチーズ) at the cafe, too !
We can choose cake as we want in the refrigerator, too.
Meals. Beef stew, hayashi rice, takikomi gohan, pancake. The butter in the pancake is not a simple butter. Marusei butter !
Yukikon cheese is made after order. Its expire date is within the day. And more they recommend we eat within two hours. I ate it with coffee. Coffee is free refills. I intended to have second helping only, but when I was about to stand up, the staff said to me “Would you like to have another cup of coffee ?” after she served to the guests next to me. So, I had three cups of coffee after all 🙂
This s Yukikon cheese. It’s cheese cream sandwiched with biscuit of Yuki ya konko’s (雪やこんこ). What is to say, it’s huge Yuki ya Konko 🙂 So, if you love Yuki ya Konko, it’s MUST when you visit Hokkaido. The cream was creamy and smooth. It was cold a bit. The biscuit was crisp. I regret. I should have order two pieces 🙁
Though I intended to eat Yukikon Cheese, I ordered Cheese Souffle after all because it looks yummy. Totally, cakes are inexpensive. Milk tea was served in a pot. Cute tableware !
The cheese souffle is very simple. Soft and light cheese souffle had refreshing tastes.
I ate it up soon. The tea is… simple tea bag :p
I saw white Goryokaku garden and had tea time. And then I did shopping. I was satisfied.
There are many branches of Rokkatei having cafe in Hokkaido. I’ll use their branches when I visit Hokkaido somewhere.
