Seika Town is a town with beautiful scenery, including Keihanna Memorial Park and the rows of metasequoia trees that decorate Seika Boulevard. It is also known for its concentration of various research institutes and cultural facilities, and while protecting nature with care, it is disseminating state-of-the-art technology and culture. In addition, there are many unique Western and Japanese confectionery shops, so it also has the face of a "sweets town". Among them, sweets made with local fresh fruits are a delight unique to Seika Town. From winter to spring, when strawberries are a specialty product, there are farms where you can experience picking strawberries, so you can enjoy them while visiting sweets.

The store, which is loved by local people, has a wide variety of sweets, with 80 to 90 varieties on display at any given time. There are fresh confections, dumplings, yokan (bean jelly), o-hagi (rice cakes), creative wagashi such as choko castella, and pudding dorayaki made with palatinose, which prevents a spike in blood sugar.

Meal bread that focuses on the ingredients and bread that looks like a sweet treat.

Located on the grounds of Viera Town Keihanna facing Seika Boulevard, this boulangerie is the sister store of Le Patissier Yamada. As is typical of the second store of owner-chef Akinori Yamada, freshly baked breads made with the finest ingredients appear one after another at the store. For example, the Y Bucket, which is made by aging bread at ice temperature to make it crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and the Salt Bread, which is semi-hard dough filled with butter and salt from the Andes, are just a few examples of the many breads made using domestic wheat. The main store is a sweets store, so the fruit-based Danish breads are also popular, and many women eat in for a three o'clock snack.
