There is a rather old coffee shop called Monkey Hill, located about 3 minutes from the Minoo station.(Up in the mountains of Minoo, there are wild monkeys, so this is probably where the name comes from.)
We've never gone in, because it looks quite dark inside from the outside, on Monday we got brave and went in for breakfast.
For 500 yen (about US $5.00), you can order either an omelet or scrambled eggs. This comes with salad, toast and either coffee or tea. This is rather cheap because when you look at the menu, a cup of coffee is 400 yen (about US $4.00). The only thing I don't like about restaurants in Japan is that everything comes with the condiments on the food items and most times it is doused in it. (The eggs came with the ketchup on it and the toast was slathered in butter.)
The interior was quite dark and it reminded me of some medieval movie set--a sign that this place has been around for awhile. Although the photo doesn't show it, there was quite a bit of traffice while we ate there.
There was even this huge coffee mill in front of their entrance. I found out that Fuji Royal is company that started in the 50's and still makes coffee mills in Osaka.
This place was nice and very inexpensive, but I don't think we'll be hurrying back for breakfast (mainly because their breakfast menu is so limited). If we do go back, it will probably be to try their lunch menu.
