Decided to put this confectionery shop into my itinerary after reading numerous rave reviews about their desserts on the Internet. Opened in 2001, Furano Delice was well-known for their milk pudding that is served in conventional milk bottles. Apart their top selling milk pudding, their double fromage cheese cakes are equally well-received. One thing to note is that Furano Delice uses dairy products and eggs from Furano and other ingredients from Hokkaido as much as possible.
There was no direct public transportation to this shop located in the Kitanomine area, making this place quite inaccessible for those who do not drive. Decided to skip the Twinkle Bus return trip back to Furano JR Station and took the Kururu bus (penultimate bus) from New Furano Prince Hotel (bus stop D) instead. Alighted at Naturwald Hotel (bus stop F), the nearest bus stop to Furano Delice, and walked for another 10 mins to reach the shop. Sad to say, we could only allocate 1 hour for this shop as we had to catch the last Kururu bus back to Furano JR Station.
A pleasant looking house located at the top of a small hill, one has to walk through this covered footpath before reaching the main building. The cafe sits at one corner of this sweets shop, overlooking the greenery and flowers planted on the gradient of the hill. Joined the queue to order their specialties and drinks to go with the desserts. Milk pudding and cheese cakes were indeed smooth and creamy to the palate, definitely irresistible for dairy lovers. If not for the infrequent bus timing, we could have spend more quality time, sit back and enjoy the delectable desserts for the rest of the afternoon.
Will recommend paying this place a visit, especially for sweets/desserts lovers.
