Marufuku’s head shop is great !
After we got out of the ramen shop, we dropped in at Marufuku’s head shop to killed time.
Marufuku Coffee-ten Sennichimae honten
About 80 years have passed since small Marufuku Coffee-ten was founded by Tadao Ibuki in Osaka in 1934.
It became so popular cafe chain store not only in Osaka but also in Tokyo. And now they are still expanding.
Though every branches are loved by people, this head shop is quite differ from such branches as its historical and exceptional atmosphere.
Visitors can feel their long history in the house. I felt we were in Showa period.
This house can occupy about 150 people on 1st floor and 2nd floor.
But when we opened the door, there was no vacant table. We waited for a few minutes and then the staff in a cute uniform like “made” took us to the seats.
Speaking of Marufuku, their strong coffee is very loved. So, of course, we ordered somethig coffee drinks.
My drink was cafe au lait float (オレフロート, 750 yen).
They add sugar and syrups into coffee in advance. So if you don’t want any sweetness, you’d better say “no sugar” when they take order.
(Sometimes they ask whether we need sugar or not in advance)
And Coffee roll cake (珈琲ロール, 430 yen).
The whipped cream having bitter flavor of cafe au lait is rolled with the baked sponge cake made of Marufuku’s coffee and it is coated with chocolate.
The pungent smell of coffee was great. If you want to enjoy Marufuku’s coffee to the full, this cake is “MUST”.
By the way, I had breakfast at Ibuki Coffee-ten that is the origin of this Marufuku Coffee 🙂
That was nice shop, too !
Though I recommend this head shop because of such as atmosphere, you can enjoy Marufuku’s coffee at branches below.
