Loaf Bakery in Osaka

We all work to get our daily bread, and if you’re looking to spend your dough, Loaf Bakery is a good choice. Located in Osaka, the bakery also houses a cafe-cum-restaurant on the 2nd floor, making it a perfect one-stop shop for those with a bigger appetite.

Every now and then, the bakery changes up their bread line-up. For example, the bakery rolled out a cream bun on a Friday, which was a sweet TGIF treat to mark the end of a fruitful week.

Pull apart the bun and you’ll find it filled to the brim with rich custard cream, which gives a similar satisfaction to seeing a delightfully runny chocolate lava ooze

Cute seasonal desserts

From time to time, Loaf Bakery releases seasonal desserts that are sold on a first-come-first-serve basis. One example is the Mont Blanc Parfait (¥1,650, ~USD11.07), which utilises Japanese chestnuts sourced from Ehime Prefecture and features a pair of bear-shaped financiers sitting adorably in a glass. The dainty dessert was sold from late February to early March this year, limited to 15 glasses a day.

That said, it is not uncommon to see popular desserts making a comeback. For instance, a summer dessert – a fruit tart – was brought back due to its immense popularity the previous year.

Aside from the limited-edition desserts, Loaf Bakery also sells festive desserts, ranging from that for Father’s Day to April Fool’s. Given how aesthetic they are, the desserts are bound to make you ecstatic.

Fun fact: Loaf Bakery decided to make a fish-shaped dessert for April Fool’s because the occasion is actually called “April’s Fish” in French.

On the 2nd floor, you’ll find a cafe-cum-restaurant where they serve up varied dishes during lunch and dinner hours. There’s also a fixed regular cafe menu that offers a wide selection of desserts, juices, and coffee. We recommend ordering a latte just for the adorable latte art – if you’re lucky, Totoro may come home to you.

The lunch menu includes both pasta of the day and pasta of the week. A previous pasta of the week was pasta with pancetta, mushroom, and white sauce.
