Want to enjoy pancakes decorated with fruits!
“NORTHSHORE”, a cafe in Kitahama Chuo-ku in Osaka, is just what you want.
The cafe is one minute walk from the Kitahama station for Osaka Municipal Subway Sakaisuji Line.
It is early in the afternoon, yet, there was a long line at the cafe…
It was totally understandable, as the weather was amazing on this day, and people were waiting in line for the outdoor seating.
When you enter the cafe, there is the kitchen on the left side, seating on the right side and in the back, and the outdoor terrace is just beyond those seats.
The view, of the Nakanoshina spread in front, was just too beautiful.
An intoxicating comfort, even though I was just having an iced coffee.
What I ordered this time was the fruit pancakes (¥1,400).
The pancakes are lavishly buried in fruits.
I was pleasantly surprised that the fruits were artistically cut and presented!
There were three smaller sized pancakes.
Regardless, the star of this plate is clearly the fruits.
The presentation was simply perfect.
Ok, let’s dig in!
Starting with the pancakes.
A new experience of a hybrid texture of cookie like crunch and soft fluffiness.
The whipped cream topping added a nice milky flavor.
The dragon fruits were juicy, and not too sweet.
The large strawberries were also not too sweet, but also very juicy.
Bananas were very sweet.
The fresh blackberries have an amazingly crisp acidity. I was able to enjoy the sweetness and the tartness of many other fruits including, pineapples, grapefruits, pink grapefruits, mangos, and raspberries.
Finally, I enjoyed a lasting sweetness with the maple syrup.
The time spent having pancakes on the terrace was indescribably comforting.
The food was delicious. It was a very soothing experience.
NORTHSHORE is popular for its meals as well, which are also generously decorated with fruits and vegetables.
Next time, I would like to try their lunch menu.
