If you are looking to enjoy delicious French toast in Umeda, I recommend CHEER’S CAFE
When you are looking to have some delicious French toast in Umeda, Osaka, my recommendation is the CHEER’S café, in Hankyu Umeda Main Store.
The café is on the 4th floor of Hankyu Umeda Main Store. You will find it in a corner, among other trendy boutiques.
It may be because this floor is dedicated mainly to women’s clothing, but the interior of the café is really fashionable.
If you join some tables together, this could be a good venue for lunch or girls-only gatherings of over 10 people.
My choice to eat at this trendy café was their season-limited Marron Cream French Toast (1260 yen.)
For the complimentary drink, I chose coffee.
They start making the French toast after you place your order (it takes about 15 minutes,) so I enjoyed a relaxing time while sipping on my coffee.
After a short wait, the Marron Cream French Toast (1260 yen) was brought to my table.
I had already seen its picture on the menu, but the impacting look of the real thing surpassed my imagination, surprising me.
A big ball of ice cream, along with a big amount of marron cream luxuriously topped the brioche.
I could not help but wondering whether the weight of the toppings would not crush the French toast. Lol.
By the way, what you can see sprinkled around the French toast are nuts and chestnuts. They have also used cassis sauce to draw a bright line around it.
The brioche, soaked in the appareil (egg wash) for over 24 hours, is extremely soft.
You can feel the taste of the egg spread within your mouth every time you bite on it.
You can enjoy not only the sweet taste of the chestnuts and the aromatic nuts, but also their texture, which makes the French toast feel even softer. They also help in making you find the rich taste of the egg ever so delicate.
The combination of French toast and chestnuts is not a very usual one, but I was moved by how perfectly they matched, to the point that it would not be surprising that this became a regular sweet, just like marron pie.
This was a delicious French toast, with which one can fully enjoy both its sweet taste – the true pleasure of eating sweets – and its texture.
Besides French toast, at CHEER’S you can also enjoy an attractive menu that is likely to make the delights of every woman, including light pasta meals, and the popular “Eggs Benedict.”
Next time, I would like to have the “Berry Berry Chantilly Double” (1260 yen,) which is one of the most popular dishes in the café’s French Toast menu!
