søholm cafe

After doing some "major" cleaning of MIL's kitchen, we said goodbye to BIL and made our way back to Osaka.

During our transfer at Shijo, we sidetracked for some refreshment at the Søholm Cafe.

This cafe is run by Actus, a large interior decor and furniture store.

Satoshi chose their seasonal roll cake.

The cake was made from rosehip tea & the filling was made from marscapone cheese with some slices of strawberries.

I didn't taste it but it did look good.

I ordered the tiramisu parfait.

Cornflakes, chocolate cake, some whipped cream & vanilla ice cream served with a shot of espresso to pour over everything like affogato...yum.

There was also a crisp coffee wafer that was served on top.

The service was spotty, but it was great to sit and relax a bit.

Both dessert sets were 1050 yen (about US$10.50) each.

Despite the service, it is definitely worth checking out again.

Got hungry by just looking at this. I find Japanese parfait is like best in the world. Love every condiments :) but quite costly isn't it?

jalna said...

OMG, your parfait looks fabulous!

K and S said...

I'm sure if we didn't have these desserts in this cafe the cost might have been a little cheaper Patzie :)

Thanks Jalna, it was delish :)

Take care you two.

I'd say that after all that work that you guys did, another dessert would have been well justified. Affogato....yeah!

K and S said...

Thanks Rowena :) love anything with a shot of espresso.

Take care.

It's been too long since I had affogato! Sounds like a good way to round out all that time and energy cleaning at your MIL's!

K and S said...

It was only the tip of the iceberg Jude, we still have LOTS more to clean...it will have to wait until "next year".

Take care.
