One minute walk from Yodoyabashi Station. In August 2016, a fashionable spot “And Island (& ISLAND)” beside a river that opened in Osaka · Kitahama. Recently it has become a hot topic as a spot for instagramming. We will introduce “And Island (& ISLAND)”.
A calm location beside the river
The spot of the cafe is perfect beside the river where on the other side of the river you can see the central public hall. 14: 00-18: 00 was cafe time, and most of the visitors were tourists and couples. A good place to chill and relax while drinking, good place to use as a meeting place, and a good dating spot. It is also close to Yodoyabashi, Kitahama, Naniwa Bridge station, there are many shops around the cafe and we recommend (& ISLAND) after shopping.
Best for instagramming! Fashionable spot inside the store
The inside of the store is made open-minded design, with various books stored on the bookshelf. Among them is were “Supreme” is mentioned in the room. It’s very popular and a picture taking spot for everyone.
You will be able to feel the attention of the shop from everything inside the store with the decorated accessories. In holidays, the shop will get crowded around 13:00p.m , so if you are aiming for instagramming, I recommend you to visit the shop early as possible.
Extraordinary lunch! How to enjoy other than coffee time
At And Island (& ISLAND), beside for the cafe time, they also have lunchtime (11:00a.m-14:00p.m) and dinner time (18:00p.m-21:30p.m). The price for lunchtime is around 700 yen to 1000 yen (7-10 dollars) while dinner time for 2,000 yen to 2,500 yen (20-25 dollars) for one person. Lunch sandwiches and roast beef bowls are popular. The vegetables they use is fresh Nara vegetables to have a fresh taste.
Roast beef bowl is the most popular dish in the shop. Salads, potato salads and roast beef contain lots of thin slices. With a good seasoning, you can also enjoy a new taste by breaking the hot spring egg. The price for regular size is 834 yen(8 dollars), for big size is 1,297 yen(13 dollars). They do eat in and take out. The menu is made to be enjoy by foreigners.
