Melbourne Coffee, Craft & Cider is a hip little cafe near the Shinsaibashi station serving Australian-style breakfast and coffee. It is difficult to find breakfast places that open early in Osaka especially places that serve Western-style breakfast. This cafe opens at 9 a.m. and is near my hotel, which is perfect. There is a good breakfast selection, such as toasties, muesli, smoothies, and cakes. There are gluten-free and vegan options. Their coffee beans are roasted in Melbourne, and the yogurt and muesli are made in-house.
The interior is decorated with graffiti art and has a lively atmosphere and chill vibe. The staff was bubbly and friendly. From their accent, I think they were Australians.
We ordered a Flat white, a detox smoothie (banana, lettuce, and avocado), and two different toasties – tomato and cheese, avocado, ham, and cheese. The coffee has a more robust flavor than the ones I’ve had at a Japanese cafe. The smoothie and toasties were simple yet delicious; feels like breakfast at home.
The cafe is popular amongst foreigners, so I recommend getting there early. All in all, a fantastic place to grab Western-style breakfast and coffee.
