A cafe where you can enjoy the panoramic view of Umeda, Osaka, SOLAMENTE in Hotel Hankyu International
For those who are looking for a stylish cafe where you can relax and enjoy your conversation, with delicious sweets and the beautiful view of Umeda, Osaka, I’d like to recommend SOLAMENTE in Hotel Hankyu International.
This store is a 3-minute walk from Hankyu Umeda Station. It is located on the 25th floor of Hotel Hankyu International.
When you go up to the 25th floor by elevator, there is this space with an unusual atmosphere…
The word, SOLAMENTE, means “unique” or “only” in Spanish.
On this day, it was such a sunny day so that the scenery from the window was gorgeous.
I visited during lunch time, but I actually came here for the sweets, which are only available for a limited time.
It was in the middle of the lunch hour, so I thought that they might say no, but they said that those who come here to eat only sweets are also welcome.
I was so glad that I was able to enjoy the sweets during the day in such a wonderful space.
I came here for La Boule and Le Carre, which are available for a limited period of time.
Both are seasonal dessert dishes, which are available until Sunday, November 30th, 2014.
You can order a dessert alone as well.
First, La Boule (¥1,188) was served.
This is Mont Blanc with a new way of thinking, which has vanilla ice cream wrapped in chestnut cream inside of a round shell of meringue.
This was a wonderful Mont Blanc, I really enjoyed the texture and temperature differences, which I had never experienced before.
Next, I had Le Carre (¥950).
This is a cake with warm chocolate-flavored biscuit layers sandwiched between Chiboust and caramel, served with maple ice cream.
Not to mention the cake, but the balance of sourness and sweetness of the maple ice cream with the orange jam was so wonderfully delicious that I didn’t want to stop eating.
This ice cream tasted so good!
I was in a daze with a little of bit tea left in my cup, and then a waitress kindly asked me, “Would you like a fresh cup of tea?”
I had no idea what she said for a second, so I just told her, “I’m okay.” But then, I realized that it was a thoughtful hospitality, which made me feel warm inside.
It was the moment when I felt that the service of a prestigious hotel was wonderful!
If I visited this place in the evening, I wonder if I could also enjoy a piano performance and things like that…
It’s stylish, the sweets are delicious, the staff is wonderful, and it is a place I felt that I would like to visit for dinner as well.
– Those who love sweets,
– Those who are looking for a stylish place to eat on a date,
– Those who are looking for a place to eat with a beautiful night view,
I recommend SOLAMENTE in Hotel Hankyu International. Please check it out!
