    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Nishishinsaibashi 1-10-28
    A pancake café located in the Shinsaibashi area, part of Osaka’s Minami commercial district. This popular chain of cafes has multiple locations with a focus on the Kansai region. Made with meringue and whole wheat flour, the shop’s popular spongy soufflé pancakes are served topped with a hearty dollop of whipped cream and fruit. The café also serves meal-style pancakes, like a take on the croque-monsieur, and it becomes particularly crowded during lunchtime on weekends and holidays. Furnished with comfortable chairs and tables, the café’s subdued atmosphere makes it easy for men to come in as well. The shop’s “3D cappuccinos,” adorned with animals and other three dimensional latte art foam decoration, are particularly popular.

    The missus and I go here every single time we spend the weekend in Osaka and every time we get sucked in by Elk’s promise of 3D animals made out of foam atop their coffees. Three times now they’ve...

    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Sennichimae 1-9-1
    A venerable café located in Osaka’s Minami commercial district which has won itself numerous fans with its rich, full-bodied coffee. As one might expect of such a long-standing establishment, the shop is fastidious about the details, including using the same cups provided to the Imperial household. The shop also continues to use the roasting method and unique drip extraction method passed down by the original founder. The café’s old-fashioned hotcakes are a particularly popular dessert choice to go with its coffee. The shop’s brick exterior and retro interior also appear in Seiko Tanabe’s novel Bara no ame. The closest station is Nippombashi Station.

    We were in the area and it was raining, and wanted to drink something hot. We have decided to enter this coffee shop, with retro decoration. The service is good and the coffee they make is excellent...

    A venerable café founded in 1951 located close to Ebisu Bridge and the Hozen-ji Temple in Osaka City’s Chuo Ward. The shop’s nel drip coffee made with coarse ground South American beans has a mild and flavor and mellow aroma. The shop’s Arabia sandwich, a tamagoyaki rolled omelet with ham served between toasted slices of bread, is particularly popular among its food options. The shop’s well-used chairs and tables emit an atmosphere of the “good old days.” The interior of the shop resounds with the comfortable conversations of the shop master and regulars.

    We came in just for a cup of coffee. The coffee was good but the atmosphere in the place was great. The cafe is run by father and son. The father is, like me, a huge Tintin fan and has a nice...

    This coffee shop located around a three-minute walk from Tsuruhashi Station has a red brick exterior and subdued retro interior that gives it a subtle charm. Its famous specialty is the Kimchi Sandwich, comprised of layers of egg, ham, cucumber and kimchi packed between toast. A large number of customers come specifically for this very treat, the mild spiciness of the kimchi matched perfectly with the mayonnaise giving it its rich flavor. The highly aromatic siphon-style coffee is another of their specialties.

    Yukinohana is renowned for its smooth-tasting desserts which, as the name Yukinohana (“Snow flower”) suggests, are as soft as snow. Besides its desserts, which are chilled but have none of the unpleasant sharpness that cold desserts sometimes have, Yukinohana also has a wide variety of other food options. With its filling soups and pasta dishes, and a wide range of toast options, it is easy to see why Yukinohana has established such a high reputation as a café. The five set lunches that Yukinohana recently introduced are also highly recommended.
