It's relatively new one and you can know it from its lemon yellow appearance. It is located in the middle of Hachimanzaka slope, which is one of the most beautiful and famous slopes in Motomachi. At the top end of this slope, there stands Nishi high school and it commands a good view of Hakodate ports and moored Seikan Ferry boat Mashumaru.
The restaurant is located left side of the slope when you walking down the slope. Its specialties are stew and rolled sponge cake.
I ordered a seasonal lunch set. Cold cream stew, carrot pilaf, salad and wine jelly are served on a plate. I could choose ingredient of stew either seafood or roast beef. I chose former and I liked it. It costed 1180yen and a cup of coffee after the meal was included.
The building was new and inside was very clean and beautiful and much larger than I imagined.
Here I want to recommend you a lunch set which costs 850yen. It consists of either pasta or keema curry, salad and drink.
I love ambience of this cafe very much.
When I visited this cafe, I ordered a set of whale soup and a rice ball（kujira-jiru set くじら汁セット）. I don't remember the price exactly, but it was around 650yen. Inside of the rice ball, there is a umeboshi, or pickled Japanese apricot. Umeboshi is sour and salty. If you are not accustomed to the flavour, you may feel it dosen't taste good.
As for the whale soup, it is one of the local foods here. It is eaten on New Year's Eve or during New Year Holidays here, in the Southern part of Hokkaido.
Do you know why Japanese eat whale meat? Following a Buddhist discipline, Japanese didn't eat animal meat but fish. Now everyone knows while is mammal, but it was categorized as fish. Whale meat has been an important souce of protein for Japanese.
Another day, I dropped in here for coffee and tasted ogura toast（小倉トースト）. It's toast and a plenty amount of sweet bean paste. If you love sweet bean paste, or anko, you must be satisfied with it.
So far, I've run this blog site mainly in English, because I'm not confident in my English expression. But I changed my mind. I hope this blog site will be useful for people who study English or Japanese, or perhaps both, and who have to depend either language.
I hope your frequent visit to this blog site.
