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.

The pancakes are lavishly buried in fruits.

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!

c00094-13-min

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.

c00094-15-min

The large strawberries were also not too sweet, but also very juicy.

c00094-17-min

Bananas were very sweet.

c00094-18-min

c00094-19-min

Finally, I enjoyed a lasting sweetness with the maple syrup.

c00094-20-min

The time spent having pancakes on the terrace was indescribably comforting.
