Pie and Crepe Clover (パイ＆クレープ クローバー) is a popular crepe shop run by Tsumekusa corp. (株式会社 つめ草) in Sapporo city, and has opened since 2010. The tsumekusa means "Japanese pearlwort" in Japanese, and it is close to the clover, so I guess that their owner may particular about that plant. 3 branches, Horohira Branch (幌平店), Hiragishi Branch (平岸店) and Kita 8jo Branch (北8条店) open a business in the Sapporo. They serve crepes, ice creams and pies.
My visited place is the Hiragishi Branch facing Heiwa Street (平和通り), and it is near Subway Nanboku Line Hiragishi Station and Hokkai Gakuen University. The branch has opened since 2012. The interior decoration has an atmosphere such as a variety shop. I suppose that this atmosphere also makes crepes tasty. There are 4 tables at the shop, too, and customers can enjoy foods and drinks there. Of course foods to go is also available.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More
Fresh Cream Crepe with Caramel Sauce and Mille-Feuille
I visited around 14:00 on a weekday. A group of customers enjoyed foods and drinks. Crepes had about 30 types on a menu, and the unsweetened crepes were on the menu, too. I ordered a Fresh Cream Crepe with Caramel Sauce and Mille-Feuille (キャラメル生クリームミルフィーユクレープ) and a cup of coffee at a cash register counter. The prices were JPY 380 and JPY 150. The reasonable price was a secret behind the popularity of the Clover.
After I took a seat for about 3 minutes, the Fresh Cream Crepe With Caramel Sauce and Mille-Feuille and the coffee were served. The apperance was just a crepe. I had a bite immediately. Fluffy crepe dough was the nice texture. The texture of mille-feuille was also good! It was crispy. A lot of sweet fresh cream and sweet caramel sauce went well with the crepe dough. It was tasty! Thanks for the tasty crepe!

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons.
