Pokemon Cafe, Osaka Japan: How to Book, What to Order, and Price

January 17, 2023

I remember when Pokemon hit local television back in the 90s. At that time, I have other interests, but I know Pikachu and some pocket monsters that I even got engaged when Pokemon Go first launched.

#J is a big fan of Pokemon and we joined her at the Pokemon Cafe in Osaka, Japan.

It was our last day in Osaka, Japan. We were flying at night, and we had the whole day to explore Osaka. We checked out early for the 10:20 AM reservation in Pokemon Cafe.

The Pokemon Cafe Experience

I think I was more excited compared to #J when we arrived at the Pokemon Cafe.

It is like attending a theme birthday party! Pokemon characters are all over the place – from the display, stuffed toys, and placemat.

The food presentation is super! I am not a big fan of Pokemon but I appreciate all the little details that they incorporated into each dish/meal. Special plates and placemats are used for a certain dish to ensure that food stands out.

For a themed cafe, the food is really good and worth the price.

I really love the appearance of Pikachu! Before her appearance, we were reminded to wear our masks and not stand up. She is the cutest. I shared some highlights on my Instagram Reels and Tiktok.
