Near the Hankyu Makiochi station is Hiro Coffee. I read somewhere that the owner grows his own coffee in Okinawa. There are several shops around Osaka, and this one is closest to where we live.
When we first found this cafe we'd go almost every weekend. But since then, we've memorized the menu and had gotten a bit tired of it.
Since it had been some time since we'd last visited here, we decided to check them out for breakfast on Saturday.
I got their french toast 350 yen (about US$3.50). 3 pieces of brioche dipped in an egg mixture then dusted with cocoa powder. It is served with a tiny pitcher of maple syrup but there is just enough to finish the dish.
Satoshi ordered their egg toast...1 thick piece of bread covered with egg salad then toasted...100 yen (about US$1) .
We also ordered 2 green salads...100 yen each (about US$1).
Their coffee is really good there, Satoshi usually orders the "2 cup"--this is a pot with 2 cups worth of coffee in it. 450 yen for the coffee plus 150 for the extra cup....600 yen (about US$6).
I ordered their dutch iced coffee...450 yen (about US$4.50), this is a cold water pressed coffee, strong and delicious.
Total for our meal was 1700 (about US$17) but with a discount taken off with our point card our bill came out to 943 yen (about US$9.43).
Not a bad way to start the weekend despite the rain.
Open everyday 8:00-22:30
