Video game correspondents Ryan Kirkland and Brenda Zavala visited the Osaka Princess Cafe this past weekend and reported back to Around Akiba.

Unlike most collaboration cafes, the Person 5 Osaka Princess Cafe did not require reservations and had better than average food. Each order also comes with a limited edition coaster and placemat. However, because the Princess Cafe made it a more casual dining experience, it lacked the games and festiveness of Animate collaboration cafes. However, they do include cutouts and plenty of Persona 5 decor for great photos and selfies.

Highlights of the menu include…..

Igor’s drink, a blueberry soda and a scoop of orange ice cream, glows in the dark. Be careful not to drink the glowing cube that blends in with the ice cubes. Around Akiba recommends this drink for those who want an otherworldly, Velvet Room experience. (Photo Credit: Brenda Zavala)

 

Based on the celebratory buffet meal the Protagonist goes to with Ryuuji and Ann, the Morgana “Leave it to Me!” Buffet Plate is a good combo if you want sweet and savory. The plate comes with white rice, salmon, roast beef, and strawberry shortcake. The Protagonist’s character drink is iced coffee topped with whipped cream and chocolate.

Reasonably priced compared to other cafes and lacking reservation, the Princess Cafe collaboration cafe nurtures a relaxing dining experience perfect for a break from playing Persona 5.
