Pastry Snaffles is a popular confectionery store based in Hakodate city, and has opened since 1998. The Snaffles is famous for Cheese-Omelette. Peche Mignon corp., a famous cake store in the Hakodate, runs it. The head office is in the Hakodate, and branches open a business in the Hakodate, Sapporo, New Chitose Airport and Tokyo Yurakucho.
My visited place is Ekimae Branch (駅前店) near Hakodate Station. The 1st floor is a sale space, and the 2nd floor is a tea room. If customers want to eat sweets at the store, they order sweets to want to eat at the 1st floor, and order a drink at the 2nd floor. But a parfait is ordered at the 2nd floor.
By the way, Express Hakodate-go (高速はこだて号) and Hakodate Limited Express New Star-go (函館特急ニュースター号), express buses, run between Sapporo and the Hakodate. Unfortunately, the express bus does not run between New Chitose Airport and the Hakodate. Besides, Rent-a-car can be rented around Hakodate Station, Hakodate Airport, the Goryokaku Fort and Hakodate Ferry Terminal.
Hakodate (函館) that about 260,000 people live is the 3rd largest port city in Hokkaido, and is a regional hub city of the Southern Hokkaido area. The Hakodate became incorporated with Toi town (戸井), Esan town (恵山), Todohokke village (椴法華) and Minami-kayabe town (南茅部) in 2004, and most of Kameda Peninsula (亀田半島) has changed to the Hakodate. It is one of most popular tourist cities in the Hokkaido, and about 5 million people visit here. The downtown of the Hakodate from Mt. Hakodate toward former Goryokaku fort is developed on a large sandbar between the seas, and a unique seashore landscape is very popular. Although a lot of tourists think the center town of the Hakodate is around Hakodate Station and the Mt. Hakodate, it is around Hakodate Streetcar Goryokaku Koen-mae Stop (函館市電五稜郭公園前駅). The Hakodate is also well-known as a city with a lot of slopes, and there are 19 slopes with its name such as Hachiman-zaka slope (八幡坂), Daisan-zaka slope (大三坂) and Motoi-zaka slope (基坂), so around the Mt. Hakodate has a lot of slope lands, and the Hakodate has a lot of narrow roads. As for a climate, the Hakodate is wamer than other cities in the Hokkaido because it is located of the Southern Hokkaido, and it does not snow hard. Read More
Cheese-Omelette and Mille Crepe
Since I had never savored the Cheese-Omelette, I visited the 1st store in front of the Hakodate Station. I asked a waitress about stores's recommendation, so She replied me "That is Mille Crepe". Therefore I ordered a Cheese-omelette and a Mille Crepe. I went upstairs, and sat at a table seat, and ordered a cup of iced coffee. The amount due was JPY 896.
5 minutes later, the Cheese-omelette and the Mille Crepe were served. I had a bite of the Cheese-omelette immediately. It was light and fluffy texture, and had the rich cheese taste. That was tasty and was not too sweet! Raw materials were produced in Hokkaido, and original cream made in the Snaffles and Yamakawa milk were used in the sweets.
As for the Mille Crepe, chewy crepes, fruits and fresh cream made in the Snaffles were piling up. The sourness of the fruits was tasty! I enjoyed eating it with just right sweetness. Thanks for the tasty sweet!

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. If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
