All the hype about the double frommage cake is true! So rich but light, totally heavenly. The cake set served upstairs is also worth it. Do try their hot chocolate too...so rich and decadent A good place to rest after walking down Sakaimachi Street, with...a very European ambience and lovely jazz music.More

For the price we had to pay for the cake and drinks, they could at least had real cups and plates. Everything is served from single-use cups and plates.

We reached around 4pm and the cafe is closed. We really like the cake so we brought 2 slices, a cup of coffee and ate them outside the shop (standing). The shop is rather crowded. We walked pass another LeTao shop which is quite empty....Suggest for people who like to visit this shop for the cafe experience to go early. If it’s just to buy souvenirs then it’s best to go a less crowded outlet.More

Able to sample teas and certain varieties of goodies. Most are extremely sweet. Cheese tart, ice-cream, coffee is good. Restaurant upstairs serves cakes and pastas which was tasty. Bought teas and Darjeeling Chocolate cookies which is the least sweet of all.

We've visited second floor cafe with family and friends for the afterlunch treats. The waiter wasn't very friendly and when I asked for the menu there were no prices there. Like, I had to ask the price for the every position, which was pretty annoying....And then they just tried to avoid our table even though we all speak Japanese. Didn't feel like anything close to the quality service.More

We bought many boxes of their cheese and chocolate biscuits. The cheese double fromage cake is heavenly. There is a cafe here in addition to the retail section for boxed snacks. Letao is also available at Hakodate airport ( within departure area) . Their cakes...are packed in a styrofoam box with an ice pack within. The sales person advised that this can last 11 hours for your flight home.More

I have to confess, I am not a cheesecake fan. After LeTao had brainwashed thousands of Asians through the power of pure indulgence and wondering what the hype is all about, I decided to take a plunge into the world of cheesecakes. It’s time for...the moment I’ve been waiting for: the cheesecake cult initiation process. The cake itself looks unassuming, but the luscious indulgently rich double fromage was so easy to finish in one sitting although biting into the dense base on its own may get a little overpowering after a while. In taste, the crepe suzette travel that thin line between “oh god, this is good” and “oh god, this is a bit much”. They are sweet and sticky but the rind of the orange pull it back from the nadir. I am a little fatter now, a little poorer, but much happier. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…More

My family and I loved the LeTao cheesecakes and products! We ordered the double fromage and it was heavenly - both types of cheeses were paired perfectly in a fluffy, delicious confection. The shop is bright and chic, with lots of samples to try. Our...favourite product from Otaru!More

The whole space at the cafe probably sits about 20. I would recommend going in smaller groups of people. Some can eat, while others wander around the store, and others wonder around other stores. I doubt the accept... More
