My apologies for the long overdue update! I’ve tried lots of cafes and restaurant since then. Sorry if I don’t list them chronologically!
I finally found the Cassina in Nagoya!
It’s smaller than the one in Osaka - at least the cafe part of it - but the store itself is lovely and very modern.
The layout is different from the Osaka store, but nonetheless it has the same structured environment and cozy, home feeling.

I guess you could say it was Sunday brunch since I did go on a Sunday. The place was actually closer than I thought and I wondered how could I have missed it when it’s literally in the area I often walk around and pass by?!
This has become one of my favorite places to kick back and relax. You could too since there are two comfy, soft leather couches inside where you can lay down if you wanted to and have a bite to eat.
Ideal for — Sunday brunch/tea time, read & relax
My rating — 73/100, food; 80/100, coffees & desserts
