Shinsaibashi is known for many things. Today we are going to talk about a lesser known joy of the area.
The area surrounding HOTEL THE FLAG is a wonderland for coffee lovers! Here are a few of our favorites.
Nine minutes by foot southwest of our hotel, you can find this haven.
Friendly staff chat with customers as they prepare delicious drip coffee. The store uses speciality beans from makers of high-quality such as Sawada Coffee (Chicago), The Barn (Berlin), and The Roasters (Wakayama).
Sporty Coffee offers a special Amemura Latte, made with Osakan sweets hiyashi-ame. You can only taste this here so we highly recommend it!
They also sell sports wear and goods and host group runs, yoga, and basketball events. A fun place for coffee lovers and sports lovers alike.

LILO COFFEE ROASTERS
Next to the variety store Village Vanguard, you can find this coffee shop.
Not only do they offer many different beans, but also they host workshops! You can learn many things such as how to prepare which beans to be the most delicious or to pour beautiful lattes.
They have useful charts showing which beans are bitter, sweet, light or dark. Very friendly to new coffee lovers!

STREAMER COFFEE COMPANY
The founder of Streamer Coffee, Sawada Hiroshi, is famous as the first Asian person to win the World Free Pour Latte Art Championship held in Seattle, America in 2008.
The Shinsaibashi Streamer Coffee shop features graffiti art from popular local artist, Casper. Enjoy a coffee here and, if your interested, head south down the street to see CMK gallery to see more of Casper’s and other local graffiti artist’s work.
