Pokemon Cafe requires advanced reservation and is usually full on the day the bookings are open. You can try your luck by walk-in. As my itinerary in Osaka may change constantly depending on weather/blooming conditions of flowers, I didn't book in advance but decided to try my luck by walk-in.We came around 9:30am at Daimaru.

We came around 9:30am at Daimaru. You can start queuing at the middle entrance of Daimaru (we were the 3rd group by then), which is the closest to the lifts. At 10am once it is open, you can take the lift to the 10th floor and take the escalators back to the 9th floor. There are 2 queues, those that have reserved and the walk-in. We were lucky to be able to join the first session by walk in(I guess not everyone was ready for lunch at 10am). Their menu is in their IPAD and only their seasonal items had a menu in paper form.
The cafe as expected is all things Pokemon.
The drinks and food came and they were totally adorable. I loved the Eevee burger and Eevee tea the most.
Overall, it was slightly pricey(even for a themed restaurant) but then Pikachiu came up in his new clothes and it was definitely worth it to see him dance. If you choose to reserve and not walk-in, please remember to choose the seats closest to the performance site. You are not allowed to leave your seats or stand when the performance starts and your view might be obstructed by others if you are far away at the back. Most of pictures had lots of other customer in it and it was lucky I got 2 shots of him that were great.
