ABOUT GIFT AVENUE CAFE
A newly opened arts and crafts cafe that is located in Cubao that allows you to eat and shop. It’s very perfect for “millenials” because of its artsy interior. About their shop, they want to promote and showcase local products. Also, if you’re an inspiring artist, maybe this is the place you’re looking for to showcase your work/s because they really want to promote and showcase Filipino/local arts.
Since Halloween is near, their cafe is Halloween-inspired as of this writing.
Let’s explore the place!!!
This is where you can just chill with friends or just study alone. Sometimes, they make it a workshop place too.
This is where they hold workshop events. Sometimes, they accept this as a meeting place also. For inquiries, you can contact them personally. Contacts are down below.

Thank you Gift Avenue Cafe for having us! We did enjoyed the food and the place! :)
This cafe offers Western-Filipino dishes from breakfast meals up to dinner. One of the staff told us that all the food they prepare are all original and homemade! Wow! I also noticed the food is good for sharing, I guess? :)
Actually, all the food we had were really good and I recommend it to all but these were the one who really got me!
MY TOP PICKS:
- Gift Avenue Signature Burger – I was shocked when they served it to us!!! Super overloaded! The patty was super juicy and yes, their patty is homemade! So good! Second reason why I loved it was because it has jalapeno that tasted a bit spicy. Hoo!!! Love anything that spicy!!!
- Salted Egg Shrimp – Ian got this one. While we’re deciding what to order, he really don’t know what to order. But when he saw this dish, ITS OVER. HAHAHA. And it didn’t disappoint us! You can really taste the salted egg! Plus, it’s very easy to eat because you don’t need to take off the shell. Yay!
- Classic Sansrival – First time that we decided not to choose cheesecake this time (but the cafe is too generous because they gave us two desserts more, and one is no other than blueberry cheesecake, lol!). We’re so lucky because this cake is super good! Aside from this one is also their best seller that’s why we chose it. The meringue is so good. Not too sweet. Just perfect for those who don’t have sweet tooth.
The price are quite pricey but very reasonable because I swear! All the food we had were super good!!! Especially their desserts!!! Super heavenly good!
Upon entering the cafe, on staff will immediately assists you. That’s a plus point to us! Because some cafe will not accommodate you unless you’re a regular customer. So kudos to the staff!!!
From time to time, they go to each customer to ask if they need something or anything. So I guess they are really accommodating!
About the serving of the food, it took 10-15 minutes before they served the food to us.
The cafe is very artsy! I like it because it still looks clean despite of the colorful interior it has. I guess, from time to time, they have a theme because when we went there, they have Halloween-inspired theme.
Its location is very strategic! It’s inside the mall and very near to schools/universities around Cubao. So mostly, students (mostly millenials) are visiting the place.
