Totally enjoyed cherry blossom-scented long eclair at Kyu Sakuranomiya Kokaido in front of Japan Mint which is famous for cherry blossoms!

At Kyu Sakuranomiya Kokaido (a cherry blossom viewing cafe) in front of Japan Mint which is famous for cherry blossoms, I totally enjoyed a cherry blossom-scented long eclair!

Kyu Sakuranomiya Kokaido is in front of Japan Mint, which is a place for cherry blossoms in Osaka, and famous for the cherry blossom viewing.
I heard a seasonal cherry blossom viewing cafe had opened, and I visited it. The cafe opens only on weekdays and its last business day will be April 24th.

c00079-02-min

Although cherry trees have not yet bloomed, in a few days, they will color the banks of the river in pink, making them beautiful.

c00079-03-min

The cherry blossom viewing cafe is open within the Kyu Sakuranomiya Kokaido grounds for a limited time.

c00079-04-min

The shop also has tables on its terrace, where you can enjoy nice sweets or sandwiches.

c00079-05-min

I went inside because it was chilly and there were no cherry blossoms yet.

c00079-06-min

I was shown to the terrace lounge on the second floor of Kyu Sakuranomiya Kokaido.

c00079-07-min

The cherry blossom viewing cafe offers three menus:
• Naniwa Black Cattle Beef Sandwich (¥500)
• Naniwa Black Cattle Beef and Foie Gra Sandwich (¥1,000)
• Cherry Blossom-scented Long Eclair (¥500)
Beverages, including coffee, tee, sake, are also available.

I was there also for a lunch, and I ordered Naniwa Black Cattle Beef and Foie Gra Sandwich and Cherry Blossom-scented Long Eclair.

c00079-09-min

And a cup of Cherry Blossom Herb Tea (¥500).

c00079-10-min

The size of the eclair surprised me. It was as long as 30 cm.

c00079-11-min

First, I tasted the Naniwa Black Cattle Beef and Foie Gra Sandwich.

c00079-12-min

The buns made of rice flour smell good and are really filling.
The foie gra, melting in my mouth, and meaty Naniwa Black Cattle Beef taste so good together.
Fantastic!!!!!!!!

c00079-13-min

After the hamburger, it is time for a dessert.
Placing a card (length: 8.5 cm) alongside the eclair makes you realize how big it is.

c00079-14-min

I intend to finish it.

c00079-15-min

The eclair’s puff shell is so light that it makes crunching sound.
The eclair has a delicate balance of rich custard cream and the crunchy puff shell.

c00079-16-min

The sweetness of the chocolate coating, and the raspberry agar jelly hidden inside accentuate the taste, and its eater is never fed up eating it.
Nice!!!!!!!!

c00079-17-min

The clear and fresh Cherry Blossom Herb Tea goes well with the rich eclair.

c00079-18-min

I realized it is my last bite already…
I was never fed up, rather want to have some more only because the eclair contained the appropriate amount of the raspberry agar jelly.
I enjoyed it. Gochisoosama!

c00079-19-min

There were no cherry blossoms yet, but I totally enjoyed the sandwich and sweets instead.
The cherry blossom viewing cafe is such a nice place that I want to keep it a secret and visit it everyday, if possible.

c00079-20-min

I would like to thank the staff at Kyu Sakuranomiya Kokaido for making my visit a pleasant one!

c00079-21-min

The cherry blossom viewing cafe at Kyu Sakuranomiya Kokaido is open for a limited time, and its last business day is Friday, April 24th.
I strongly recommend the cherry blossom viewing cafe at Kyu Sakuranomiya Kokaido for those who:
• loves eclairs;
• wants to enjoy cherry blossoms and good sweets at the same time; and
• is looking for a cherry blossom viewing cafe near the cherry blossom viewing at Japan Mint.
