Had a great lunch there. They have a proper gluten-free menu! Not just one or two options. So many that for the first time in Japan, I was actually able to eat too much, ha! My stomach felt fine afterwards so it's definitely safe if you're gluten-intolerant like me. I can tolerate traces, but cannot have a bite of bread without being sick. I was lucky to get the table outside as it was full inside. Great view on the Ferris wheel. Really lovely people. Closed on Monday and Tuesday. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in Osaka.

Had a bacon egg burger and a shepherds pie today, it was amazingly good. Friendly staff and cozy environment. A must go restaurant.

Coincidentally, we went into Kuma Kafe, after being in the aquarium - which for us was a chaotic and disappointing experience with far too many people. We quickly got the owner's (Paul's) attention and service to our table. Kuma Kafe has excellent food and drink. But, in addition, Paul and his wife have created a wonderfully calm, friendly and good atmosphere that makes the cafe a perfect oasis. Since words cannot adequately do justice to Kafe Kuma, my recommendation is quite simple - go in and experience for yourself, you won't regret it!

This place is amazing. Tried a few times to go here when I was living in Osaka and never managed. Finally managed to stop in during a business trip. Absolutely worth the wait. Best burger in Japan, bar none. I actually went for the pizza and ended up grabbing a pizza to go, the closest to American pizza I've had in Japan. Seriously, go here. Owner and staff are really good guys as well.

We split the sandwich and a small Mexican nacho pizza - unbelievable!! Likely the best pizza we have ever had. Owner was extremely friendly and came over to talk with us. Prices arent superbly cheap but very fair for the quality and portion size. This place is more than worth every penny - highly recommend Kuma Kate!

Worth the wait for a delicious ‘corner store’ gourmet style burger! The staff were lovely and the place was charming. Would recommend as a good stopover point on the way to the Osaka Aquarium!

Unapologetic Australian goodness. Fantastic food, fantastic atmosphere, fantastic service. Get a glass of mixed juice and a Kuma Burger, and you're all set. Or go all out with a SUPER Kuma Burger, just don't expect to finish it in one sitting. An absolute must for those craving a "western" taste in Osaka.

If you are by the Osaka Aquarium, or planning to go, and you need a meal, I highly recommend the Kuma Kafe. The staff are some of the nicest people I've met and the food is extremely good. They have an English menu and the staff was great at speaking English, so don't let the worry of a language barrier hold you back. Food portion is VERY generous, even by American standards. We had a chili hotdog and a chocolate pancake, and both were so good. If I am fortunate enough to come back to Osaka, I will definitely be coming here again.

I had the best burger of my life here. Just a few minutes away from the aquarium and honestly much more exciting. Very friendly and helpful English speaking staff and English menus. Also one of the few places I've been in Japan that offers a beer larger than 12 ounces. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

This place feels like a hug! The food is AMAZING! Generous portions, good presentation; can't say enough good things about it! The owner is so welcoming and it feels like a home away from home. Close to transit and the Osaka aquarium so super convenient to get to. If your looking for a great eat and yummy "Western food" this is the place to go! Thank you for your hospitality 😊

Very rarely does one find a good place to relax and eat with nearby tourist attractions. Kuma Kafe is one such gem I had to try their Chilli Con Carne and my biggest mistake was having a big breakfast beforehand because it will fill you up. Don't hesitate to stop by cause I know I will the next time I visit Osakago!

Warm and cozy restaurant a short walk from the aquarium and across the road from the ferris wheel. Very accommodating to foreigners as menus are in English, and have American staff. I had the burger which was one of the best burgers I've had in a long time. Burger was so full of delicious juices and everything was delicious. Prices are pretty spot on, you are getting what you pay for.Would love to come back sometime.

This place serves one of the best burgers in Japan - wait - one of the best burgers ANYWHERE! The bun is crispy on the top and soft in the middle. The burger is so juicy you had better use the sandwich pocket it comes with or you'll have it all over you! The toppings are fresh and compliment the burger perfectly. The fries that come with the burger are crispy and plentiful.The pizza is fantastic with a homemade crust and fresh, abundant toppings. The sauce is flavorful and house made. Even the Italian soda is better than others I've tried in Japan.If you are in the area you must try this place! Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays - open until 6-6:30 the rest of the week. Soooo worth a visit!

Just wonderful.At the risk of repeating what everyone else has said, this place is a gem. The food is great, the atmosphere is great, but the real attraction is Paul, the owner, who's just a wonderful person to talk to. About 10 days into our Japan trip, it felt like coming into an oasis of friendliness. Plus, there's cheese!
