Shopping in downtown Sapporo can be exhausting work. In and around Sapporo station are a multitude of opportunities to spend money. Visitors to the city flock to the big electronics stores, apparel shops and boutiques from sun up to sun down. Inevitably, with all the walking, bag toting and picture taking that comes with such activity, the need to sit, relax and replenish one’s energy will arise.

Perfect brew to relax

Located on the 2nd floor of the new Akarenga Terrace Building between Sapporo and Odori stations, BROOKLYN PARLOR is a great place to refuel. With seating for 130 people, there is rarely a need to wait to take a table. This is important, as this establishment is the type of place where it’s very easy to while away the afternoon into the evening.

Part high-ceilinged café, part sit-down restaurant BROOKLYN PARLOR offers a variety of New York-styled dishes. From coconut lattes and caramel-drizzled pancakes to juicy avocado and bacon cheeseburgers and a pint of Brooklyn Lager, there’s something sure to please any hungry guest. Or for those just wanting a beverage, there are a number of specialty coffee drinks and cocktails, as well as non-alcoholic cocktails, juices and teas.

The interior design has all the trappings of a good book café back in the Big Apple, with funky tables and chairs, lots of plants and hundreds of books to thumb through at your leisure. Large windows provide a great view of the brick plaza leading up to the Douchou, the former Hokkaido capital building. Jazz music helps set the mood and on weekends local and out-of-town musicians perform on a small side stage.

BROOKLYN PARLOR’s appeal lies in the comfort of its ambiance and quality of its menu. In a highly competitive area for restaurants, this is one that’s sure to be around for a long time.
