Had seasonal chocolate ice drink there. Not bad. As for chocolate, I'd still prefer Royce's. There is only 1 small high table for eating in the store and 2 chairs. Better for take-away.

The choc is nice, slightly expensive. can be bought at chitose airport where they pack with dry ice.. don't need to buy here and carry around. There are 2-3 le tao shops along otaru sakaimachi road, n they hand out samples to try. they have cafes inside if you want to sit n rest, of course buy their puffs/cakes/coffee etc.... More

A must-try. Rich and very good. Prefer the original to the chocolate version. Even if you have no time to stop, it is worth buying one back to the hotel to try.

Good Chocolate Shop but not much variety. They sell Chocolate Fromage cake similar to their Double Fromage Cheesecake but I prefer fir the latter @ the Original Le Tao Shop

LeTAO is definitely one of the main sweets store in Otaru. It's been here for years and they have taken over many locations. Beware the cakes are really rich in flavor

After walking for awhile around in Otaru, it was really a nice treat for afternoon tea. The tea served in pot was fragrant and the cheesecake melts. Though rather pricey, it is value for quality and freshness. Service was quick and polite except waiting time for 30 minutes during peak times. While waiting, one can hop downstairs to have a...

There are 3 LeTao restaurants in Otaru. All of them located nearby each other. Nice view is at the corner of the road. But we went to the Pathos one. Cheese cake is very nice. My friends tried chocolate float n said very nice. Only one bad experience there. We tried to reserve seats while other friends queue for purchasing... More
