So Cute and So Tasty! Four Best Desserts of Umeda, Osaka
If you’ve come all the way to Umeda, you should definitely treat yourself to dessert. Among the many cafés and confectionary shops, we visited four shops with the theme of Cute and Delicious!
1. Enjoy a rich gelato at Venchi!
This chocolate gelateria from Italy has been popular since it opened in DIAMOR OSAKA in 2021. The gelato comes in various chocolate flavors, as well as pistachio and hazelnut, and the richness of the flavors is unmatched. The interior of the store is very insta-worthy with its gelato-themed decor!
First, the cone is topped with a generous serving of chocolate. Don’t miss the professional techniques of the staff who serve the colorful gelato.
The store also sells chocolates by weight as well as gift boxes. They make for great souvenirs.

2. Enjoy a new matcha sweet at nana’s green tea!
This café offers a variety of matcha and hojicha drinks and sweets. In this modern evolution of Japanese chanoyu (tea ceremony), you can experience omotenashi (spirit of hospitality) and service in a relaxing atmosphere.
The parfait is highly recommended, so you can enjoy the full potential of matcha. Despite its generous size, its delicate Wa (Japan) flavor will disappear in a blink of an eye. Enjoy it with a cup of aromatic Japanese tea.
