Osaka, a city of gourmands, is famous for okonomiyaki and takoyaki, but actually there are plenty of high-quality sweets shops as well. Here are 5 particularly recommended places to check out.

1. LA EGOIST

This is an ice cream cake specialty shop with a distinguishing, gorgeous façade. While of course their ice cream cakes of all flavors are recommended, their chocolates are another popular product. Please enjoy the high-quality, rich flavor. They also have Champagne de Sel (1,080 JPY (incl. tax)), a treat made of layers of fruit preserves like mango or grape and mousse that's then filled with champagne right before your eyes. It's a perfect treat for you to spend a luxurious time with. You can only have it if you eat in, but they also have a non-alcoholic version, so please try it if you can.

2. Fukujudou Hidenobu Saryou TOKI

This cafe opened in 1948, just after WWII. The main branch of Fukujudou Hidenobu, a shop that continues to offer beautiful wagashi (traditional Japanese confectionery) in Tezukayama opened this branch cafe. You can have their popular warabimochi or parfaits made with Japanese flavors. Don't forget to stop by the main branch and buy popular wagashi like their seasonal, high-quality fresh sweets or their limited Tezukayama product.

3. Patisserie quai montebello

This is a cafe inside Le Sucre-Coeur, a bakery that has been called the most popular bakery in Japan. The cakes and other baked goods lined up in the showcase are elegant and beautiful, just like the sweets they're known for. All of the products are perfectly made, and are popular as sweets for adults. You can eat in, so it's great for people with time. While Le Sucre-Coeur is often crowded, their bread is also to die for. Whether you try their sweets or their bread, you'll be addicted after one bite.

4. gram Shinsaibashi Main Branch

At this restaurant, they offer mostly pancakes but also French toast. While there are branches in Amerikamura and Tennouji, this is their main branch. The recommended item is their premium pancakes (950 JPY (incl. tax)), a stack of pancakes that are 4cm thick each. The fluffy, light pancakes overcome your idea of a regular pancake and become a different kind of sweets. However, since they're really popular, they only make them 3 times a day for a limited quantity. Also, it takes a while to make, so be prepared to come with time.

5. Hug French Toast Baking Factory

This French Toast specialty shop is in the Nakazaki-cho area of Umeda. The most popular item is their Cultured Butter Maple French Toast A La Mode (1,280 JPY (excl. tax)), which uses cultured butter to create a rich flavor. The thick, square bread is soaked in egg so it melts in your mouth. The Long Baguette French Toast (starting at 580 JPY (excl. tax)) is also popular. Please enjoy a leisurely time in the white, relaxing atmosphere of this restaurant.
