On a short walk from Osaka monorail Toyokawa station is 'Ci Coffee and beans', a lovely stylish café located in the middle of a Onoharahigashi area.
The café opened in April of 2021 and is run by a young couple. The name Ci (pronounced shee) stands for ‘Is Coffee’ in reverse. Also the CI in roman numerals would be 101 which is the combination of the couples birthdates.
The cafe is located along the main road going through Onoharahigashi on the bottom floor of an apartment building. It has big windows that give passersby a clear view of the interior of the cafe. The interior is a combination of Modern and Scandinavian styles with lots of warm wood and light colored materials. That in combination with the large windows letting in a lot of light gives the café a warm and comfortable atmosphere. It's a small albeit spacious it has room for up to 6 people.
The menu has coffee as well as non-coffee (chai) drinks. Ci also sells absolutely delicious sweets that include 'honey' poundcake, cheesecake and sandwich cookies etc. Everything is absolutely delicious and the drinks are not too hot.
Ci Coffee and Beans is a lovely cafe with a stylish interior and delicious drinks and sweets that is a must visit.
