Coffee and sandwich shop—Saera
A sandwich shop beloved by Sapporoites for its famous red king crab salad sandwich
Saera is a sandwich specialty shop that opened in 1975. You can choose two fillings from over 10 options. Its most famous menu items include the Fruit Sandwich, which features fresh fruit sandwiched between reduced sweetness whipping cream, and the Red King Crab Salad Sandwich, which uses a hearty helping of flaky red king crab leg meat. Other must-try menu items include the Shrimp Katsu Sandwich, deep fried only after you order it, and Smoked Chicken Sandwich, which the owner says he eats almost every day. From the moment it opens, the shop is abuzz with customers who dine in or order takeout, and three generations of the same family keep coming back. Tourists also frequent the shop, which offers a menu in English, too. Enjoy eating and comparing the different tastes at Saera, which means “this and that,” inspired by the French (pronounced “çà et là”).
