Went there as a group and tried their desserts. The cheescake was decent but the crust was soggy. The creampuff was quite nice though

We came to the cafe and it was crowed. We ordered and paid at the counter and was served shortly. We had the cheese cake and milk pudding. Very yummy and fresh. They were not too sweet tok.

Nice place to take a break after long walk, friendly staff and good environment. Minimum order one drink or one slice, the puff can only order from level one and not considered in. Overall a very nice cafe with lots of local plus overseas tourists.

They have several stores on the same street in Otaru. And every stores are supper busy. There’s a counter selling different type of cheese cake. And the cheese fromage was the best cheese cake I’ve ever had in my life. I guess cheese cake won’t...taste the same for me else where after this place and I will have to visit Otaru again for this. Also I’m the store they also sell a bunch of cookies and small packages cakes and chocolates perfect for souvenirs. You can also buy the fromage cheese cake that will be wrapped in a small cooler for take away that will stay chilled and fresh for about 10 hours.More

Basically we decided to have dessert as a breakfast substitute. It worked somehow as the chiffon cake set with a tea/coffee was delicious. Not too sweet & cake so soft. Cafe opens at 10:30 for desserts & 11am for lunch. WiFi great too.

It’s hard to miss the big dessert shop in Otaru. I’m not a dessert person but I still find their double cheese cake good. Before you walk into the shop, you ate greeted with free sampling and even more in the shop. They also allow...you to sample any cake before you buy. We sampled a few different cheese cakes before deciding to buy the chocolate fromage. There are toilets in the shop. The shop is usually busy but is spacious enough to wander around pleasantly.More

Went into Le Tao Pathos to buy the famous Hokkaido Cheese Cake. They sell it frozen and you can only eat after it defrosts 8 hours later. It was delicious and heavenly. Must buy and try.

We ordered the number 1 and number 2 most popular desserts. The first one has cream between 3 layers of sweetened crusts, and it is something that we tasted for the first time. It is great! The second one is a more traditional dessert with...cheese cakes and fruits, which are all great too!More

Visited on 06 Nov 2018 around 4pm after visiting the Otaru Canal . It’s a short walk from the Canal along the main road . Can’t missed it . Cafe is located on the 2nd floor. It’s abt 10 degrees outside and sunsets around 4...pm. It’s a good place to recharge from the cold. My first time here, ordered the safest choice , the number 1 cheesecake set. Comes with a piece of cheesecake, and a cup of seasonal blend tea. Tea is of a fruit acidic taste which compliments the rich creamy cheesecake . Abt the cheesecake, Top layer is a thin layer of fresh cream, 2nd layer is the main character, a very thick, rich creamy cheese, the last layer is a thin layer of sponge cake. When put in your mouth, Everything blended together nicely, very smooth, yet not overpowering. After that , wash it down with the tea . 👌🏻 just Perfect . Fully recharged to walk back to my hotel. Left at around 5pm , it already nightfall. Enjoyed the treat. Will visit again.More

Went in there for coffee and cheesecake....there is a little cafe on the ground floor next to the entrance but there is also a restaurant upstairs The cheesecake is not cheap for the size but then again a bigger piece would have been too indulgent

If you get the cheesecake, not advised to have it as takeaway . Not advised to consume within 6 hrs, in short try it there . The free tastes offered by the staff with their known variants are good in my decision making. Have the...ice cream and chocolate too.More
