【Farmer’s reataurant, café Beco】Relaxing café overlooks grazing cattle.

Hokkaido has a lot of farms.
I want to spend some relaxing time watching grazing cattle, for I love their spot pattern. Café Beco (beco means cow) in Nakashibetsu is the perfect place for me.

Open the red door, then you’ll find a worm, relaxing space. You can see grazing cattle through the large window.


Let’s let loose looking at cute cattle.


They serve 10 kinds of freshly baked bread every morning. I’m sure you’ll love them. The kind of the bread changes daily.


And, here comes sweets.
