Sapporo has no shortage of delicious food, and when it comes to breakfast, you’re in for a treat.
Here are 5 places we recommend eating at in the morning offering a Hokkaido/Sapporo breakfast experience you won’t get anywhere else.
Cafe de Nord
Cafe de Nord is located on floor B1F of the Hokkaido Building which is directly connected to exit 6 in the underground walkway of Sapporo Station. It is also known for managing coffee roasting cafe Infinity Coffee. Going to CAFE de NORD means you can enjoy a luxurious time drinking coffee from one of their special cups while listening to some jazz. Their delicious breakfast menu includes toast with jam, cheese toast and more all of which can be enjoyed together with your favourite choice of coffee.
This coffee and sandwich shop is located on floor B3F below the underground shopping centre of Odori Station on the Toho Line side. The great thing about this place is their long menu and the ability to create your own sandwich to your liking. Popular menu items include the Red King Crab Sandwich, Fruit Sandwich and Fried Shrimp Sandwich. Whatever you order you can rest assured your sandwich will be filled to the brim.
Peche Grand is a 5-minute walk from Sapporo Station on the first floor of Akarenga Terrace facing the Hokkaido Government Office. It’s inspired by cafes in Paris and was opened by Peche Mignon, a French sweet shop in Hakodate. Their breakfast menu at first was served as is, but now you can get all the French toast you like. With that you’ll also get eggs, salads, drinks, and if you’re they’re known to sometimes bring cake too. When the weather’s nice you can enjoy eating in the open terrace like a real Parisienne.
Arinko is located in Satsueki Eat next to the east ticket gates at Sapporo Station on the JR side. They first opened in 1980 and make hand-made onigiri rice balls. If you’re going there for the first time we recommend trying their most popular choice which is cheese katsuo (cheese bonito) together with pork miso soup, a delicious combination of vegetables grown in Hokkaido and pork. It’s sure to fill you up. They also allow takeout so you can stuff your cheeks while strolling around the local sites like Hokkaido University and Odori Park. The onigiri are also made right in front of you which is exciting to watch.
Northern Kitchen All Day Dining
This place is a 13-minute walk from Sapporo Station and is designed under the concept of ‘top quality Hokkaido breakfast.’ They serve a buffet style breakfast with each and every item prepared to the utmost perfection. You’ll be spoilt for choice at the huge selection. The inside of this eatery is also spacious and welcomes a refreshing morning meaning you can spend a calm and relaxed early start to your day.
Sapporo is the gourmet city of Hokkaido, so if you’re Japan trip is taking you around the north, be sure you get a great breakfast to start your day.
