I have always wanted to experience the pleasure of eating an entire cake whole and at Symphony Chiffon, I can fulfill that desire! Symphony Chiffon offers miniature sized whole cakes and opened a year ago in both Kitahorie and Dojima in the Osaka prefecture. You can enjoy the delicious creations of Symphony Chiffon by dining in or take away.
The cakes come in three sizes: Small 10cm, Medium 14cm and Large 20cm (which is only available via prior reservations). All of the cakes come with a specific type of sauce that is made specially for that flavor of cake.
Symphony Chiffon offers seven flavors of colorful sponge cakes and two types of chiffon toast. The cafe’s interior has been modeled after the stylish cafes in Paris. Also, there is always classical music playing within the cafe, hence the name Symphony Chiffon. There is also an outdoor terrace that allows customers to bring along their pets and enjoy these delicious cakes as well.
All of the Chiffon Cake Platters at Symphony Chiffon come with a cup of soft serve ice cream and sliced fruit. Instead of serving normal size chiffon (sponge) cakes, Symphony Chiffon’s cakes are a sixth of the size of a normal chiffon cake (about 10cm). No matter which part of the cake you eat, it is consistently fluffy and spongey. The baker succeeded in making cakes that do not change color on the outside from getting burnt and so the cake remains nice and bright, inside and out. The cakes that are available in the restaurant are served with whipped cream in the middle and special sauces along with seasonal fruits.
